    I worked at Overaa Construction as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great California construction presence; growing with multiple offices. Very hands on company that self-performs much more work than average with many diverse and interesting projects (Oakland Zoo! NASA! a huge marble mosque!) It is a 100+ year old family business that keeps to its successful traditions but is also always looking to improve with the best people and new methods. Overaa has basically built the Bay Area over the decades, including much of California's water infrastructure, BART, the universities, etc. It has been ranked as a best place to work for a few years now I think. As an intern I got to meet the president and CEO multiple times.

    Cons

    Everyone is given surprising responsibility on projects -you have to take the initiative to do what needs to get done. But that means you really get into the projects and join the sense of accomplishment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, I had a really valuable summer. Maggie and Lynn did a great job with the intern program.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Overaa Construction (Richmond, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Met with director and president on 2 interviews, once outside the office once at the office. Interview was relaxed and semi formal. Dress was semi formal. Met with president for final interview. After the interview I received an office tour which was an indication that I got the job. Job offer was sent by HR within one week. The overall experience was good.
