    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at URS Corporation (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Spoke on the phone with the CEO of Bainbridge. The job was listed as a research intern position which I would expect would be for pay. The job was no pay but there would be opportunity to start one's own business. I was not impressed by the interview with the company overall and would not recommend interning here.

    Multi step process. Had three phone interviews that spanned two weeks. Then was invited to come to the work site and interview in person with the same three people.

After that I met with all three people again and was told that I would be hearing from HR and that they wanted to hire me.

    Interview

    Panel with multiple managers, HR and Security. Very friendly and as relaxed as possible. I was nervous at the Panel idea but much easier than 1:1. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice everyone was. Would recommend a panel interview.

    Civil/Geotechnical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at URS Corporation.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a panel. Hiring manager I could tell immediately I wouldn't want to work for him and that I would not be a good fit. He seemed pretty childish and ill prepared. The other guy was very professional and prepared. If he were the manger I would have felt different about the job. I had a phone screening and a interview. Screening went well, but I lost interest in the follow-up interview especially when they wouldn't tell why employees had left the position. Seemed like there was a problem. I am not disheartened at all about not getting an offer. Lastly, manger lied in call. These types are the worst to work for... Serious red flag for me. I didn't ask when I should expect to hear from them or anything. I am sure my disinterest was displayed.
