Project Administrator Interview (Positive Experience)
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.

Project Administrator Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at URS in February 2009.
Interview Details – Initial contact was directly from the hiring manager who requested an in-person interview. I accepted that request & met with him the following day for approximately 1 hour. I was called back to meet with a group the following day, and ultimately met with the Vice President and HR rep before having them make me a formal offer. I counter offered, and we negotiated a bit and I accepted their final offer. Started within a week.
Negotiation Details – Negotiated the dollars, the vacation, and the amenities: private office, laptop, ability to telecommute when necessary, which is great because I have a family. It was important to wait until I knew they really, really wanted me before even attempting to negotiate. I was satisfied with the outcome. In retrospect I probably could have squeaked out a bit more $$.
