    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Ultimate Software.

    Interview

    Met with them at my school's career fair. Went through two interviewers. First one asked more behavioral-type questions to get to know me and see if I knew enough to pass me onto the second interviewer. The second interviewer asked more about the experience on my resume and then general programming questions related to OOP.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ultimate Software in April 2015.

    Interview

    Was contacted by company recruiter who asked me some questions about my current position and then scheduled an appointment with the hiring manager. Despite the hiring manager telling me he would follow up to set a date for a face to face interview I never heard back from them. When I spoke with the hiring manager he said multiple times that he would love to get together to speak with me in person over lunch and that he felt my skills fit the job requirements but that he wanted me to meet with a number of other people on the sales team first. When he asked if there was anything else I'd like to add I explained that I had a service dog that would need to travel with me for the rare travel that the job entailed. He said no problem and would be in touch. After multiple follow up attempts I finally received an email saying a decision would be made at end of the week. I then followed up with him a few days after I was supposed to have received a response and never heard anything back from them again; not even to let me know they found someone else and I was no longer being considered.

    Agile Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Ultimate Software in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had phone interview and I am not quite impress with the interview process. Here are some pitfalls - - I had applied for Agile Iteration Manager role. I got a phone interview setup and towards the end of the interview, I was considered for Tech Lead role. Weird part is, even though in the email, Agile Manager position was mentioned. - Tech Lead role was for .Net developer. I have been working with front end technologies like Angular and Backbone in recent years. I did .net 5 years ago. However, recruiter - a non-technical guy - continue to ask me .net questions and wrote down my answers. I see two issues with it. 1) Any strong developer will not get answers correct for technologies he/she hasn't used in years. Instead, focus on questions based on the recent experience or for a Tech Lead role, focus on leadership skills. 2) I strongly feel technical interview is not a right fit for non-tech guy because they can't make a best judgement if candidate can't provide the exact answer. It was clear from my resume that I haven't use these technologies in years so either don't consider such candidates or ask them right questions based on their strength and what they will bring to the table. I am sure Ultimate Software is one of the best companies out there based on the reviews here and they also make exciting products (of course, that's why I applied for a position there). However, my interview experience wasn't impressive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Ultimate Software (Alpharetta, GA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview first. I was told at that time a face to face interview would take place. I then had the face to face interview with a recruiter and then one of the payroll manager. After 2 days I sent a "thank you" to the recruiter via email. I didn't have the payroll manager's information. Three days after the interview I called the recruiter and left a voice mail asking for a status of the position. I didn't get a call back. I then sent an email. The next week I received an email saying another candidate was chosen.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ultimate Software (Champaign, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Found them at a career fair, went to a dinner with the recruiters afterwards, got a technical remote test, it was on Java stuff so I wasn't too familiar with it all, didn't get a call back. The question was about class inheritance and sorting an array using the 'super' keyword and list functions.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ultimate Software in May 2014.

    Interview

    The process was simple, but time consuming. First was an interview with a technical recruiter. That went well and I was asked to take an exam. It was timed and I was given 90 minutes. It took about a week and a half for them to contact me and say that they would like to continue the process. It then took another week and a half to get the next interview set up. Finally, a week later I got the rejection.
