    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Turner Construction (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very behavioral. There were two interviewers, both very nice. One asked all the questions and the other took a lot of notes. They asked specific behavioral questions, none technical. They wanted me to ask a lot of questions about the company. They told me it would take about 4 weeks to hear back, and I am still waiting. The whole process was half an hour.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Turner Construction (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Turner as part of an on campus recruiting session. The interview lasted about 30 minutes with two interviewers. Both interviewers had been working with Turner for 15+ years and shared their experiences and the roles they have had over the years. There were no technical questions, rather they were mostly focused on personality traits. It was all to see how you would interact with others, considering the company’s projects are team based. I was told I would hear back in approximately 2-3 weeks if Turner is interested in proceeding with the interview process. I heard back and had a second round interview in Turner’s office. The day consisted of a handful of short interviews with people of various roles in the office, as well as a site tour. I was told at the end of the day that I would hear back in about 2 weeks regarding an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Turner Construction.

    Interview

    Had two separate interviews. On the first interview, I met with a senior safety manager and a project executive. We went over my resume, they talked about the company and safety dept, and then we went into some interview questions based around behavioral analysis from professional experience, and they were also figuring out what I'm looking for in a role and a company. Had a meaningful yet easy-going conversation. Both interviewers were very straight forward and made me very comfortable, which is noteworthy since most interview experiences can be anything but that. Second interview was with the Business Unit Safety Director. It was pretty similar format to the first interviews. I was happy to receive offer at end of interview. Interview process at Turner was best I've seen anywhere. As I mentioned before, I felt like it was a straightforward conversation that definitely brought a lot of insight and value to me and I believe to the interviewers as well. Very positive experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Turner Construction (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with six people, cycled with about 10 other students and asked about past experience, how I fit at Turner. I think the idea for the interview was good but it was stressful to know you were up against your competition and you are all sitting right across from each other.
