    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


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


    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!
