  • Information Regarding Recruitment Hoaxes

    The PCL family of companies has become aware of internet hoaxes that pose as recruitment communication efforts for fictitious career opportunities with our organization. The perpetrators of these hoaxes conduct interviews via instant messaging, ask for personal information, and/or solicit potential recruits to pay fees to start work with one of PCL’s independent operating companies. The people implementing these hoaxes or other similar false offers of employment are not affiliated with the PCL family of companies in any way. These recruitment communications are made without PCL’s knowledge or approval.

    If you receive an unsolicited employment e-mail, see a suspicious job posting, or are asked to make a payment to begin a job, the PCL family of companies strongly advises you to scrutinize the opportunity carefully before responding.

    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!
