    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Clark Construction Group (Washington, DC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I first had a video interview that had basic questions. After, I was invited to the corporate office for a day of interviewing where I toured to a job site in DC, had lunch with Clark employees, and then had four one-on-one interviews. It was a long day but meeting everyone at Clark really sold me on the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Why construction? Why Clark? Describe a team where you were a leader. How would you handle a time when a subcontractor was being difficult? Describe a time when you had a difficult team member and how did you handle them.   Answer Question
