    Pricing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at URS Corporation (Norfolk, VA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    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. Once in person, I was also able to meet my potential staff and ask questions which was helpful. Later I met with the Sr VP who asked me what my expectations were and I laid out things that I would want in order to come to the company. 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at URS Corporation (Norfolk, VA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Congregated in a warehouse and sat down to fill out applications. Then shuffled through interviewers as quickly as possible in a separate room. A bit of an uncomfortable experience. Not sure I would even apply at their company again. They were friendly, it just had a very unconventional feel to it.

    Administrative/Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at URS Corporation (Norfolk, VA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone fairly quickly after completing the online application. From there, I had to complete another, more detailed online application. After that, I met with three people. Everyone was very pleasant and professional. The atmosphere was positive, and it seemed like a very nice place to work.

    Though one of the interviewers noted that they did not hire just for contracts, when I heard back (a different person - not someone with whom I had interviewed), I was only told that no one was hired because the contract was not awarded. The person who said this was very abrupt, so I didn't feel like I could ask for more information.

    Interview Questions

    • None. There were standard interview questions and questions that required specific detail about my previous work.   Answer Question

    Finance/Contracting Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at URS Corporation (Norfolk, VA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone a couple weeks after I put my application in. The HR representative was very kind and asked about my application and why I was interested in the company/position. After a very brief answer she asked me if I could schedule to come in for an interview in the next few days.

    I then went in for the interview which consisted of the people in the department I would be working with. It was a fairly easy interview where I was able to steer the conversation into my attributes and talk about my resume. They asked me questions about organizations that I am involved with and basically asked me to run down my resume. Also asked why I wanted to be an intern there, which is a pretty basic question.

    It was good to demonstrate knowledge about what the company does and ask questions that helped define what the companies culture was like and a better description of what I would be doing there. There were other candidates lined up to interview before and after mine, so make sure you try to stand out. Overall was a good atmosphere during the interview, I suggest answering their questions with a smile and being confident about your answers.

    About 2-3 weeks went by without me hearing anything, but got the offer.
