Project Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenwood Village, CO

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Whiting-Turner (Greenwood Village, CO).

Interview

The on-site interview consisted of meeting with 6 of their employees in the office (speed dating style), a lunch at a restaurant, and a project site visit.

First, I met with 6 of their employees individually for 30-45 minutes. Each asked a couple of questions and talked about a certain topic regarding the company and then I asked questions from them.

The lunch took a long time and while sitting at the table, the Vice President kept asking questions. During the lunch, while we were talking about food, one of the interviewees questioned the integrity of a very successful and well-respected Mexican restaurant in Laramie, WY and even worse the VP of Whiting-Turner continued the conversation by questioning their food safety and kitchen cleanliness. Apparently the guy has never been in that restaurant, which has an open kitchen and the customers can easily see what is happening inside the kitchen and how the food is being prepared. I was very offended with the racist and judgmental comments of the VP, the leader of the Colorado office!!! I am sorry that I did not stand up for the restaurant and did not leave the table.

The site visit was pretty quick. No proper introduction about the project or the staff on the site. I was not impressed at all. They kept bragging about their safety records and how much they cared about safety and their employees. But when we were visiting the construction site, they did NOT give us, the four interviewees, SAFETY ORIENTATION before entering and visiting the construction site!!! There were several very serious safety issues on that construction site. I am OSHA-30hr construction safety certified and I was very disappointed that they put us in that situation. I wonder what they would have done if anything had happened to any of their interviewees!!! Make sure to ask them about the orientation before going to the site or get a good life insurance!

My overall impression is that they only talk the talk but don't do walk the walk.

- They say it's about their people but it is all about how you are going to serve the company. They take uncalculated risks out of lack of knowledge and proper training.
- Training is not important to them.
- They do not value graduate-level education. So if you have a master's degree don't even bother.
- Diversity does not matter to them. So if you are not caucasian do NOT even bother.
- Male dominant work environment. Females be aware!
- Very old-style and close-minded leadership style. Bad role model!
- We-are-the-best and we-don't-need-advertisement type of attitude!

    Interview

    It was pretty laid back. I interviewed with six different groups at the company and they chose which group I would be best for. There were two interviews both fairly general. Nothing too specific was asked regarding my background in construction.
