Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PCL Construction (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2014.

Interview

Easy, very straight forward process. Ended up meeting with head of Estimating and HR Manager. Was asked a few simple questions by the HR Manager, then a few follow up from the Head of Estimating . Interview didn't last longer than an hour . There was casual conversation at the end of the interview, whereby I had the opportunity to hand over printed references which were well received.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PCL Construction.

    Interview

    Promised the world materialized to just average. Told shares would double your salary in 7 years in reality more like 20+. Gave really poor reviews of current employees once I started I found the problem was not the employees but the management

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PCL Construction (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Two interviews, the first with HR, the second with HR and Ops Manager. Both were comfortable, straight forward and lasted 1-1.5 hours. HR was easy and very cordial. Second interview with panel was more difficult and pointed. i.e. eelved deeper into situational experience and personal appraoches to hypothetical situations.
