    4 separate interviews by 4 different members of Ultimate Software. First interview was for a position in which I was applying for.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ultimate Software in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Very quick hiring process; recruiter called on a Friday and scheduled a phone interview for Monday. Phone interview was behavioral (what does integrity mean to you, questions like that) and was asked to rate my skills in Microsoft Office suite (beginner, intermediate, advanced). The recruiter scheduled an in-person interview for the upcoming Friday at noon and I was offered the position at 3pm

    Customer Success Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Marietta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marietta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ultimate Software.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the Talent Acquisition/Recruiter for a vetting interview. During that interview he told me my experience and credentials were pretty much perfect and better than the caliber of resume's he generally sees for this job. In fact, he said I'd be a perfect fit. I received a call to set up an interview with 3 managers.

    That interview was awkward and strange. It was clear from the type of questions they asked they had no scope of understanding of my experience. It was clear I was grossly overqualified for the job, however that was not a concern of mine.

    Even though I was overqualified, the response back to me was I was not adequately qualified. When I asked for more feedback or if there was some training I could do to become more qualified, I was told this group would never hire me and if any further jobs came up with that specific group, I would not be considered.

    I really believe they are a great company and one I would love to work for, however, this experience was not good.
