    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Skanska in February 2014.

    Interview

    I received an email from the human resources manager notifying me that she wanted to schedule a phone interview. I had participated in the AIC Reno competition, and afterwords there was a career fair so I submitted my resume to the Skanska booth. She asked a few questions about my experience at the competition, like about my role on the team, how my team performed in the competition. In hindsight, I really should have talked more about teamwork (we were pretty great as a team and worked well together) and less about our actual results from the competition. The interview questions are pretty typical, pretty much all traditional and behavioral questions. The interview was over two years ago so I wrote down the questions I remember below.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Skanska (Durham, NC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted via a phone call about 3-4 weeks after applying through university connections. They asked what time I was available in the next week or so to do a phone screening and the actual phone screening took about 15 minutes. Afterwards they said I'd be contacted in mid-January with an update on the interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Skanska (Carteret, NJ).

    Interview

    Had a phone interview and in person interview after meeting with them at a Career Fair. The phone interview was very basic questions and easy. During my in person interview the HR representative essentially promised me the job and I was later informed that they hired too many interns and would not be making any hires. The process was very disorganized for such a large company. They did not really know what they needed and didn't need. The whole process took about 3 months, very frustrating.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Skanska (Seattle, WA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I heard about the summer internship opportunity through a college scholarship that Skanska annually rewards students in the state of Washington. They responded to my scholarship application via email and we set up an interview time on my college campus at the University of Washington. I was interviewed by six UW graduates and current Skanska employees. A suit is very appropriate for this type of interview.
