Construction Superintendent Interview Questions

"As a construction superintendent, you must be able to multi-task between managing your workers, coordinating activities, and monitoring budgets. During an interview, expect to talk about your previous projects and answer technical questions regarding your knowledge in construction. As the responsibilities are demanding, the ideal candidate is willing to give more time than their shift, including nights and weekends. Be sure to show that you are willing to dedicate yourself fully to meet deadlines and have the years of experience to take on project management."
