    Construction Superintendent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Suffolk Construction (San Francisco, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The process was professional and organized. After an initial phone interview I was able to meet with them in person the same week. I was able to meet with a number of people in supervisory roles to get a real feel for the company and they could get a feel for me from a few different perspectives so we were both sure that this would be a good fit for all parties.

    Assistant Superintendent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Suffolk Construction (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    My 1st interview was on the phone, and the 2nd was with a panel. I appreciated that employees directly involved with the project had attended since I'd be working with them more closely. I've had interviews with a company where the panel consisted of a President, Vice-President, and Field Operations Manager. None of those individuals I'd ever see or work with again during my time with the company. It's an interview for the company too, so they had to win me over too.

    The interview had fair questions. I believe it was just to gain an understanding of my experience, what I knew, and how I work. They had a lot to say about how they work. By the end of the interview I was more than excited to start. There was no talk about compensation or benefits. That was discussed on the phone after I was offered the job.
