    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ultimate Software (Weston, FL).

    Interview

    3 Interviews:

    Phone interview with recruiter.
    This one should be the easiest one. Usually all recruiters are very nice and they want you to be successful. But, it is mostly an interview where they will ask you about your past experience, why you left your others jobs, why you want to work in a customer service position, and most importantly, why Ultimate Software.

    Panel interview with high up managers.
    From the moment you walk in, they are already screening you. How you introduce yourself, talk, walk, etc. They say that within the first 2 minutes, they'll know wether you're a good fit or not. So, make sure you bring your A game for the first 2 minutes!
    This one is similar to the first one, but they'll throw in some behavioral questions. "Tell me about a time where you had a tough situation with a client and how did you solve it?"
    If you do good on this one ( DON'T BE NERVOUS ) you will take a quick test.. You should be fine as long as you use common sense and bring your analytical skills into play.

    Panel interview with future managers from teams.
    If you're here, you should be almost good to go. Previous managers think you're a good fit and want to run you through potential team managers. Don't be nervous for this one as you almost made it, but, it can and will break you if you think you've got the position already.
    Mostly behavioral as well, with questions about your previous positions. Be confident and enthusiastic. I mean, this is Ultimate Software, if you aren't happy you made it this far, then you should look elsewhere.

The job that I was applying for was/is customer service driven. I was extremely prepared for all 3 interviews & still was unsure as to how I did until I received a call from one of their talent managers to confirm their interest in me. Great job, great opportunites.

    Interview

    I had a series of 3 interviews. The first was a phone interview, the second was a skype interview, & the last one was a inhouse. The first, & second they wanted to see what sort of background you are bringing, as far as ed level and career background. The 3rd was inhouse and prior to the actual interview you are given a math/analytical assessment. There is mix reviews about how the assessment affects whether or not you are hired. I feel that it is important that you research the company and truly have a desire to work in customer service.
