Skanska

Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Skanska (London, England) in Oct 2021

Interview

The interview process was standard, not difficult. The overall process was however extremely timely - over a 2 month period e.g. 6 weeks between interviews. I initially applied for the position of BDD (UK) in August and was invited to a first interview in September, which I received the Teams call details only a day before the interview. Before the second interview I was asked to complete psychometric and maths tests. Also before the second interview stage I was clear with the internal recruiter about my salary expectations and that those details needed to be shared with hiring managers - this was not done. I was told about about a 3rd interview by the hiring manager and follow-up about being invited to this or not and was told I will be given an update soon. I was then completely ghosted and not formally informed of the interview outcome - I find this extremely unacceptable given the time as a candidate I have invested in preparing for interviews etc. If I am not the right candidate I would hope to be informed!

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Skanska in Mar 2021

Interview

Process is straightforward and transparent. I had to postpone my virtual interview and recruiters were absolutely fine with that. Virtual interview was maintained in a very nice, professional atmosphere. I would definitely say try to get an interview there. It takes around an hour but recruiters make you feel very comfortable. Skanska seems to have a lot of new opportunities coming along which does not surprise me at all.

Interview Questions
  • Competency Based Interview. Collaboration, negotiation, prioritisation skills.

Interview

First you have to send a lengthy response to their standard questions about why you love the position and what makes you a great fit etc., then they send you to an automated online assessment a few days later.

Interview Questions
  • The online assessment tests numerical and other personal skills, but is timed for about 3 minutes per question. This is a poor reflection on a company which should pride itself in their workers treating each problem with care instead of stressing through them as fast as possible as if their jobs depended on it.

Interview panel consisted of Process Engineer and Design Manager from Anglian Water’s @one Alliance. Lasted 1 hour, general competency questions and a technical case study.

Interview

The process was first a telephone interview and another second interview. I didn't pass the telephone interview and they didn't even bother in giving me some feedback requested twice to HR and to the person who did the interview. Bit disappointed as I thought big companies are always helpful in providing feedback but not as serious company as I thought they would be.
