    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Whiting-Turner (Baltimore, MD) in October 2015.

    Interview

    1st round interview was on my university's campus with alum I met before so was very informal and relaxed for me interview consisted of three, 1-on-1, 15-minute interviews.

    Was flown out (all expenses paid) to the HQ in MD for the 2nd round. Interview lasted from 8-4ish, consisting of three, 1-on-1, 45 minute interviews, a lunch and a job site tour (also got to hang and talk to people who worked in trailer on site). Was a great experience overall and I really like the company.

    Received an offer over the phone the next week, and received letter later that week, but still deciding so haven't accepted yet.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Whiting-Turner (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    After a phone interview, I was asked to come down to Baltimore to their headquarters for further interviewing. The whole interview was about 5 hours after speaking with multiple people in the office, visiting an active site, and then going out for lunch. It all seemed very casual and I can't recall having many typical "Interview questions"

    Interview Questions

    • Didn't have any stereotypical interview questions that I can remember.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. I was offered a position right after the interview and really wasn't expecting it so I didn't know what to say.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Whiting-Turner (Baltimore, MD) in November 2013.

    Interview

    At a career fair at my school I briefly spoke with the employer rep and dropped off my resume. I received a call from the company and we set up a phone interview. During the phone interview the employer asked general easy questions about school and my lifestyle and what I was looking for in a career. Before the end of the phone call the employer wanted to set up a date for an interview at Baltimore headquarters so I agreed and we set up a date. At the interview in Baltimore we started at headquarters, drove to a jobsite, had lunch and ended the interview at headquarters. Overall was around 5 hours probably. At lunch is where the interview mostly took place, but again, it was very easy going, no difficult questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Whiting-Turner (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    Initial interaction on campus; then trip to Baltimore to interview. Spoke with Division VP, VPs of two groups, and multiple PMs. Interview process lasted from 9am-4pm. Conversations were light; if the company brought you to their location they already trust in your abilities but they want to get to know you as a person. They stress that they only hire Project Engineers and then promote from within the company so most of their employees have been with the company for 15+ years.

    Interview Questions

    • Hardly any typical interview questions were asked. Conversations mostly revolved around getting to know your personality. They did ask what other firms you were interviewing with and several people continually asked if I had family in the area/ was I willing to relocate if they were to offer me the job.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whiting-Turner (Baltimore, MD) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Process started with university career fair recruiting. A few leeks later I received notice that Whiting Turner wanted me to come in and sit for an interview.

    Interview was relatively short. The result of the interview was an offer for internship employment. The senior project managers that I met with explained to me how it would benefit them to learn what kind of employee I was.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Whiting-Turner (Baltimore, MD) in October 2011.

    Interview

    This is for a soon to graduate college student, I assume most interviews with WT would be similar.

    Initial contact was at a college career fair, the standard chat and resume.

    Follow up interview was on campus about a month later. Was a 1 on 1 interview with a Project Manager. Pretty standard get to know you type questions.

    Was contacted a few weeks later for a second interview at their headquarters. They offered to fly me in, hotel, ect. Interview day started in the morning, talked to a few VPs, a couple younger Project Engineers. Was followed by a trip out to a local job site, talk/informal interview with a few more people.

    All in all it was fairly laid back, it was early in the recruitment season, WT trying to grab a few of the best before they were taken. I was not offered a position, but I would say the experience was still positive.
