    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I expected considerably more professionalism and consideration of more than a decade of experience in lieu of a formal degree for what is essentially, a field position. The interview questions did not accurately represent the job at hand and the interviewer was not approachable to address anything other than what her script reflected. The epitome of a HR being disconnected from the realities of the actual work performed by the company.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at URS Corporation, an AECOM company.

    Interview Details

    Two step process with current employees. I felt as if they already knew who they wanted but were going through the steps to make it seem fair. The interview went well, I felt very positive, received both the one on one interview and the panel interview, yet did not receive the job. Asked later for pointers on how to improve interview next or for feedback that would help me to avoid any danger areas that I may have stumbled into, never received follow-up.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at URS Corporation, an AECOM company in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very straight-forward interview with the people I would have been working with. Don't over-prepare for trick questions like I did. Be measured and comprehensive. Chances are they are trying to gauge your communication skills and professional manner, not your specific knowledge. Be prepared to discuss accomplishments on your resume in a way that does them justice. I regret using the term "y'all."

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at URS Corporation, an AECOM company in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Easy interview, one party was late, but I do believe I spoke to the wrong person who was one time regarding my past experience. He wanted his friend all along to get the job even though he possessed ZERO experience or knowledge about the job.

    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Applied on-line, received a call a few days later, asking about my qualifications. Not sure if my resume submitted was actually read. A month later I receive another phone call to schedule a phone interview. Had a phone interview two days later. The recruiter knew nothing about the position I applied for. I was asked if I had plans to get an advanced degree. My response was is it required for the position? No it's not required was the reply, not sure why that would be a question during an initial phone screen. Received notice a few days later the position was cancelled. Pretty unprofessional experience, not impressed with this company.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at URS Corporation, an AECOM company in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Great interview with highly talented group. Had a positive interview that made me want to join team. Unfortunately relocation and merger with AECOM complicated the process. Once the merger is complete I expect this to create a superstar in Transportation Engineering.

    Senior Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Germantown, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Germantown, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at URS Corporation, an AECOM company in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    First step was a phone interview that lasted an hour and consisted of medium difficulty questions about your current job and what you do in specific details. I Felt good afterwards and I got an invite to an onsite interview the following Monday.

    Next was an onsite with the manager and we went over the same topics from the phone interview which was very easy until the director came in. The directors overall demeanor was completely opposite of the manager's which was difficult for me to quickly adapt to. His questions came fast compared to the managers conversational interview style. I quickly got nervous and found it difficult to answer his questions the way I was trained to answer interview questions. To pass this round of interviewing you must be very confident and an excellent interviewer or you will not stand a chance here.

    I didn't receive an offer or a response after my thank you letter.
