    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Virginia Beach, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Virginia Beach, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at URS in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Personal interview with prospective manager and was offered the job immediately. Manager was very intelligent and professional. The interview did not go on very long or was detailed because I was already qualified for the position and the manager was extremely pleased with the employee who referred me. Overall, the manager was great - I just wish they had more power so they could have helped me negotiate a better salary when they were promoting me but upper management has their own way of doing things and they lost a dedicated employee because of that rigid culture.
