    Class of New Grad 2018 Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Skanska USA Building (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email asking to schedule a phone interview. The HR representative was very nice and pleasant. Unfortunately, the job description was unclear as it didn't say the functions, location or time frame.
    The interview was a little more than 30 mins and he asked me 10 questions. My interview was okay since it was my first interview and I was very nervous. The questions were basic behavioral and nothing technical.
    I interviewed sometime end of September and they got back to me on December. It was a little ridiculous how they had to wait more than 2 months to respond back to a phone interview. I had multiple email exchange with the HR, but he kept saying they would get back in two weeks and never did.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Skanska USA Building (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    I interned with Skanska so my transition from an intern and PE role didn't really have an interview. My internship interview was through a panel. The panel was very welcoming and was really just trying to get the feel of your personality and thought process.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Skanska USA Building (Washington, DC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Getting your resume in front of the right people is always the first step. I had a good phone interview follow up for about 1-hr. This was successful and followed by an in-person interview for a little over an hour. Then, I waited patiently and was offered a job within two months. Placing is always important and can be tricky in this industry, so I understand that to be why I waited for a while. Also, they are devoted to proper placement of current employees which I think is a strength of the company, but may make it harder to break into a specific office or job that you want from the outside.

    Interview Questions

    • Prior experience is big. The are curious about competitors too which was interesting. A mix of typical questions you should expect and some original ones too. Be ready to answer openly and honestly.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Yes you can negotiate. You can always negotiate, you may just be unsuccessful. In my case I was pretty happy with what I was offered so I choose not to push it.
