    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sterling Construction (College Station, TX) in September 2015.


    Very friendly. Interviewed with two recruiters on my college campus. Asked about my work experience and the specific classes I took. They asked to name a weakness that I had, along with any challenge I have overcome. The interview was primarily behavioral in order to see if I was a good fit for the company. A lot of personal questions, no technical brain teasers or anything of that sort.
