Intelligence Analyst Interview

Intelligence Analyst
Indianapolis, IN

Interviewed at URS

Interview Details – Never Contacted. Never Interviewed. Watched two other individuals with less education and less experience get hired immediately. One of which has a relative working for the client. The only obvious reason I can conclude since I have yet to recieve a response to my inquiry: My race or gender.

Interview Question – No questions ever asked.   Answer Question

Positive Experience

Project Administrator Interview

Project Administrator

I interviewed at URS in February 2013.

Interview Details – The entire process consisted of two interviews: the first one with the actual hiring manager, and the second one with the team, which included other project administrators and an HR person.
I had a very positive experience with this company, and both interviews went well. Everyone from the hiring manager, to every team member and a front desk person were all very nice, and conducted themselves cordially and professionally at all times. I believe they gave everyone a fair shot at the job, an inference I am making based on intuition.

There weren't any difficult questions, and most were not of behavioral in nature, i.e. tell me about a time when... The second interview consisted of questions that each team member had developed on their own. Thus, each interview will probably be entirely different. It was about 3 weeks from my first interview until a decision was made regarding a candidate.

Planning & Scheduling Analyst II Interview

Planning & Scheduling Analyst II

Interviewed at URS

Interview Details – Landing a phone interview is more about who you know than your credentials. Phone interview leads to in person interview with hiring manager and human resources manager. Negotiate your offer at least 5% because raises & promotions are slow your first year.
