o Paid Summer Internship (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CA – March 22, 2014
Pros: one hour lunch breaks, free coffee
A typical day at this Internship with URS corp. was very upbeat, they always kept us learning and involved. I developed strong interpersonal skills and learned how to work within a business environment here.

Overall it played a big – more... part in my life and I am very satisfied about the tasks I was able to complete. – less
Aircraft Mechanic II (Former Employee), Marana, Az – March 15, 2014
Pros: excellent benifits package, great pay, paid travel expenses (for work of course)
Cons: as a contractor your time is unknown (have a backup plan)
It was a real pleasure to work for the company. We started as LSI in 1999, got acquired by EG&G several years later, and then acquired by URS. I was promoted three times, received several employee of the quarter awards, trained as an ISO auditor, and enjoyed working for the company for fourteen and a half years. Unfortunately thanks to the powers that – more... be our funding was never extended, or renewed and we lost our contract. So twenty good aircraft mechanics were laid off, however we were given 5 weeks notice of the lay off. Loved the company hated the uncertainty. – less
Accountant/Document Control Clerk (Former Employee), Hermiston, OR – March 12, 2014
Cons: project ending
I worked on limited duration project, so it had an ending date. Due to the nature of this project I am unable to detail the actual work. A typical day at work was that something would always arise needing resolution. My team would work together to resolve any situation, real teamwork. I had two immediate managers and both were wonderful at aiding in – more... my success and would actually help resolve any issues. The hardest part of the job was leaving on my release date. The most enjoyable part was the diversity of things I learned, and the team I worked with. – less
Loved working with URS as far as my fellow employees and the work that was appointed to me.
Supply Technician (Current Employee), Springfield, MO – March 7, 2014

PAS (Pollution & Abatement System) Operator. (Former Employee), Stockton, UT – March 4, 2014

HVAC maintenance (Former Employee), aurora il – March 3, 2014
Pros: leaving alive.
After jumping through about 10 different hoops to just get started, I wound up going to the job location. The guy that hired me was not there, I was handed over to a bunch of guys who were already familiar with the extremely large facility, and were not exactly in a welcoming mood. There were about 8 different mechanics and maybe only 3 said hello and – more... acknowledged my presence. The only other HVAC mechanic wouldn't even say hello. This would be the guy I would work along with or that would watch my back at an extremely large plant. A place where the key component of safety is communication. These guys looked miserable, angry, beat down, and most definitely not interested in helping a new tech with anything. An everyman for himself attitude. It only took me one day realize this place was an accident or fatality waiting to happen. They were so desperate to get another individual to help with maintenance calls, that they were willing to hand over a 24-7 365 day phone for service, to a person who had not even been there 1 whole day. This was not a place to do the sink or swim game. This was a serious size facility that would require at least a solid month of getting familiar with, before being handed the keys to the castle. I had the skills necessary to thrive here, but I was terrified by the group who were in control of keeping me safe. I give this 1 star due to poor leadership and training. I give it negative 12 stars for the individuals in charge of training and the miserable crew. stay far away. – less
