    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at URS a company of AECOM in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Took 2 months from the initial application to be offered an interview, which is quite a long wait, the job description was vague at best, making it very difficult to prepare for the interview properly as as an electrical engineer you can be doing any number of jobs. The interview was very enjoyable, very friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at URS a company of AECOM.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was quick and painless. Recruiter had prepared me for the areas to focus on for this particular role. the manager was far less experienced than I expected and was relatively new to the role at a few months - so they couldn't really answer the questions sufficiently.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at URS a company of AECOM.

    Interview Details

    Two step process with current employees. I felt as if they already knew who they wanted but were going through the steps to make it seem fair. The interview went well, I felt very positive, received both the one on one interview and the panel interview, yet did not receive the job. Asked later for pointers on how to improve interview next or for feedback that would help me to avoid any danger areas that I may have stumbled into, never received follow-up.
