    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at URS Corporation in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online. Next day received an email saying 'thanks for applying, but we are no longer considering you for this position'. Several weeks later received an email asking to call them if I was still interested. I called and the first impression was positive. A phone interview followed. Later a job offer came (without any additional interviews or ever meeting anyone in person). Hiring process seemed extremely atypical.

    Interview Questions

    • No hard or tricky questions. Asked me to explain past professional experience, and why I became an engineer.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They asked my desired salary range. They came back with a lower offer. Tried to negotiate for more.

    Came over from Apptis, so no interview. Did a lot of hiring for Apptis, so the question most asked was, "with your experiences, what can you bring to the table in filling this position"?
