    Contract Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at URS Corporation (Detroit, MI) in October 2011.

    Interview

    challenging to schedule an interview with extremely busy managers and staff.
    hiring process was longer than I expected.
    the terms of the project were understated which means the job lasted much longer.
    the face to face interview was finally arranged well after business hours at the managers kitchen table at their house.

    ok and fairly standard

    Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oakland, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at URS Corporation (Oakland, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    One of the easiest interview processes I've had, but I think it really depends on who you are interviewing with. A friend of mine interviewed and was given a pop quiz.

    I had a casual, relaxed conversation, and I didn't have to deal with multiple rounds of interviews which was nice. I was done in under an hour, and I received an offer a week later.

    Planning Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toledo, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at URS Corporation (Toledo, OH) in February 2009.

    Interview

    Had worked with staff throughout the company in a previous capacity, earlier in my career. A project developed that my skills and talents were recognized to be of value. I assisted in developing the position description, it was advertised publicly, and I was put through a comprehensive interview and background check process. Internal approvals and procedural requirements between local management and corporate HR took time to be patient about as internal requirements were satisfied and worked through.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Very limited negotiation, on the one hand. On the other, as the position was developed pretty specifically, crafting the development of the role was a form of negotiation.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at URS Corporation (Denver, CO) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I have now interviewed 3 times with this company for 2 positions in 2 offices in my area. For the first, I was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview, then contacted for an in person interview. Had to fill out their form with all of my resume information a couple days ahead of time, then had the interview. Interviewer said that the HR person would contact me in the next week to get an overview of the benefits. HR did not call, so I contacted person with whom I interviewed. I received an apology and was told that they wanted me to interview with 2 project managers about a particular position on a project. That interview happened approximately 2 weeks later. At that time, I also met with the HR person regarding benefits. After 2 weeks of hearing nothing, I called the HR person with whom I met (who did not call me back), and emailed the HR person who originally contacted me 6-8 weeks previous. After a couple days, I was informed that the positions for which I was being considered were on hold as the projects were pushed to Q1, Q2 2013.

    However, the positions are still showing up as advertised.
