Project Managers, Melissa Walling and Jeannie Clements, are the constructing power duo on the El Camino Hospital Integrated Medical Office Building (MOB) in Silicon Valley, CA. The seven-story MOB will include space for hospital support, outpatient servies, and medical offices for doctors. 

Growing up, Jeannie wanted to be an Oceanographer or have a career involving the ocean and ocean life. She started her career as an Construction Electrician with the Navy Seabeees (NMCB 133 '93-'98) where she developed the "Can Do' mentality that she lives by. Now with 15 years of construction industry experience, she has been a part of the Rosendin family for over 11 years.

Every day in this industry is different than the one before and that's my favorite part! I thrive off of challenges and watching things come to fruition. There are two moments that stick out in my career, the first was being selected to the Leadership Academy and the second was proudly mentoring Melissa Walling and watching her grow into a great project manager with Rosendin."

Melissa thought she wanted to be a nutritionist, until a friend of hers knew of an open position in the construction industry, which seemed fitting since the majority of her family worked in the industry. She applied and was hired. It has been 13 years since her first day and 11 years as part of Rosendin Electric.

One of the greatest things about this industry is that you never stop learning and you are always challenged. I have been fortunate in my career to have worked and currently work with some great people on my teams."

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rosendin Electric (San Jose, CA) in May 2018.


    I took part in a great close up and personal interview with Rosendin Electric. The interviewers asked me very direct and specific questions. They also allowed me to ask probing questions. Questions that allowed me to get a clear insight to their team.

    Interview Questions

    • What are my long term goals. This may seem like an obvious question, but, in my experience, employers who don't ask this are not much interested in our mutual long term wellbeing.   1 Answer
