Everyone is incredibly willing to teach you. As an intern in the construction field, you get to be very involved in the work, as long as you just ask!
Construction might not be the industry for you if you don't like to start work early in the morning
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing!
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Graniterock (Watsonville, CA) in April 2015.
Very formal, slightly intimidating set up (6 people sitting in a circle interviewing me). They had a list of questions to ask me, each person asked a question as they went through the list. The manager I would be directly working for went through the duties of the prospective job (there was a lot of info that she went through very quickly though). I had done a ton of research on the company so I kinda knew how to answer the questions they were asking (focus on safety). I made sure to ask for additional info or examples when they asked vague questions, which really helped.
