        I can only speak on behalf of the team I was assigned to, but there was fair work life balance. The company does make efforts to be transparent with the operation team as far as project outlook.


        Worked at Sellen Construction for two years in Seattle, Washington. Overall, the work-life balance was good, and I enjoyed some of my coworkers. However, there were noticeable cliques within the company, which made it challenging to feel fully integrated. One major drawback was the lack of clear advancement opportunities and structure. The company seemed to have a “sink or swim” approach, leaving employees to figure things out on their own. As someone with only two years of prior construction experience, this was not the supportive environment I needed to grow professionally. Another concerning aspect was the company’s heavy reliance on tech projects, primarily centered around Microsoft and Amazon. Unfortunately, when the tech industry experienced a slowdown, Sellen Construction suffered as well, leading to layoffs on the operations side. The lack of a diverse backlog put employees at risk. My personal experience with the layoff was disappointing and unprofessional. The executives provided no recognition for the hard work I contributed to the company. When I inquired about the reasons for my layoff, one executive made a condescending comment about my intelligence and critical thinking skills, which felt disrespectful and unnecessary. Moreover, Sellen Construction showed little interest in investing in their employees’ development or providing training opportunities, which further hindered career growth. In conclusion, Sellen Construction has its strengths in work-life balance, but the lack of support, limited project diversity, and unprofessional handling of layoffs are areas that need significant improvement. Potential employees should consider these factors before joining the company.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      During my interview with a Vice President, he mentioned that the "background check" had been reviewed. He brought up cities I had lived in at one point, even though I hadn't included that information on my resume or LinkedIn profile, though it is accurate. Additionally, he was aware of my entrepreneurship experience, which I had not disclosed anywhere. I'm curious about the source of this information. I'm currently progressing through the interview rounds without any offer or signed documents.



      I’m moving on to round 3 of the interview process after speaking with the VP and it’ll be with peers. My position would be Insurance Product Manager so the peers would be internal stakeholders (Sales, Engineering, Underwriting, Actuary, etc.) What kind of questions typically do peer interviews ask?

      I have an interview tomorrow for a position as a Fundraiser Specialist for a company that raises funds for children. Any insight or advice to give? I do not have any experience working in fundraising but have worked in sales and have worked in childcare for several years. Thank you!
