    Senior Communications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PCL Construction (Denver, CO (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter found me on LinkedIn, encouraged me to apply. Did a phone screening with the recruiter, a phone screening with the manager, an in-person with the manager, and in-person with another member of the team, and then an activity to test my actual skills to see I could handle aspects of the role. I was also required to do a basic personality test and have three former coworkers fill out a questionnaire about me. None of it was difficult, it was just long and tedious.

    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 .

    New College Graduate Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PCL Construction (Houston, TX (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Interview involved three days where twenty students and approximately ten PCL employees were brought in. It consists of introductions of both the students and the employees as well as quite a few employees giving presentations about their roles and examples of what type of work they do on a daily basis. There were also three team building activities that were used by those evaluating candidates. Finally, there was a 1:1 interview.

    The interview process was easy on the surface, but with so many candidates and people from the company, it gets a bit difficult to get face time with those that actually make the decision on who to hire.
