    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview

    First round interview on campus, second round interview in their office. Was very easy, simply walked through my resume with an HR rep and higher up person. Felt very comfortable, did not really ask any structured questions. A lot of time could be left up to open conversation.

    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.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. First i had a phone interview with HR then an in person with HR. HR asked a very standard slew of interview questions (what are your relevant experiences why this role what salary are you looking for etc). A week later i met with management on a project site. Again they asked me what experience i had and wanted to get a sense of whether you will be a team player and are a leader.

    Technical Support Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview

    The interview process was a "typical" tell me about yourself process. They asked questions about certain technology that they use on a daily basis, to ensure that I am able to function with it. The questions threw me off a little when they asked about what books I have read in the last year and why I read them. Very good and very different process to everything. I believe the reason that it was asked it to make sure that my personality will click with the teams. Overall on a scale of 1-10 for the interview I would put it at a 6.8 /7.

    Interview Questions

    • As I stated above, I would say that the unexpected question would have been the "What Book have you read in the last year and why".

      Very different.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Skanska USA Building.

    Interview

    I contacted them through a University career fair. I spoke with a rep there for a good bit and talked about a various number of things, not really construction in particular.
    They ended up contacting me before I had a chance to follow up with them about a week later.
    They scheduled a phone interview, then I waited about a month due to other college recruiting that they were doing. I was then contacted and schedule for an interview in their local office with the HR Director and VP.
    The interviews were very relaxed, laid back, informative, and really had the feel of a smaller company.
