    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at URS Corporation, an AECOM company in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Brought in by a recruiter. Met controller/director for first interview, then came back for second interview with the Senior VP. Offer was made through recruiter a couple days later. The initial offer was good, but short of my desired salary. The recruiter was able to negotiate the higher salary. I suggest that you set work hour expectations up front as they will consider flexible schedules.

    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.

    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.
