    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PCL Construction in July-2018.

    Interview

    It was a very pleasant and relaxed 2 hour interview. My overall impression was that the company focuses more on interpersonal skills than reviewing a CV. PCL construction is very focused on hiring the best quality of employees, professional skills as well as personable skills. Be approachable and relax.

    The interview was by far the best interview I have ever partaken in.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PCL Construction (Honolulu, HI (US)).

    Interview

    Met with President, VP, Ops. Manager, HR Manager and Field Ops. Manager. They all had scripted and non-scripted questions. Very professional and efficient. The interview was in person and was a bit intimidating at first given the number of people and their positions within the company. The intimidation went away rather quickly and the interview was more like talking story than being grilled.

    Accountant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PCL Construction (Orlando, FL (US)).

    Interview

    I applied online, HR called me, asked a few questions, scheduled an in-person interview that week. They encouraged me to ask lots of questions in the in-person interview so I did. Giving a thumbs-down because they said they would make a decision by the following week but they couldn't be bothered to send a rejection email. Interviewees are using their PTO to come interview for you, the least you can do is follow up with a two sentence email.
