    Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PCL Construction (Edmonton, AB) in June-2015.

    Interview

    It was a well thought out process of several interviews with multiple internal stakeholders, members of HR and the direct Hiring Manager. It allowed me the opportunity to assess the company and it's culture prior to accepting an offer. People were open and honest - this helped me understand the pros and cons of working at PCL Construction. Overall, the interviews and the people (and a job offer) made for a positive experience which I have no issue referring friends or family!

    Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL (US)
    No Offer
    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.

    Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PCL Construction (Houston, TX (US)) in January-2018.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a phone call by HR to schedule for an in-person interview at the office which turned out to be a Skype interview. For an IT position, they should know that Skype interviews can be conducted from anywhere and no need to have someone drive up to their offices just to sit in front of a computer.
    After the interview, I have NEVER heard back and its been a month. I even followed up with an email but still CRICKETS!!! It would be nice to follow up with the candidates even if it is a rejection considering people take the time to come and interview .

    Construction Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Honolulu, HI (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.
