    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenford, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenford, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ultra Electronics in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called by a recruiter for the role and they submitted my CV to a consultancy. I was then interviewed by telephone where the interviewer just went through my CV. I arrived at the site to have a face-to-face interview. I couldn't find a parking space and there were no visitors parking. One of the building contractors said I could use his space and I went into the building. The reception staff were extremely rude about me using his empty space and told me I had to move my car. When I asked where I could park they pointed vaguely. After looking around the estate I could not find a parking space so I phoned up the interviewer and told him that I was canceling.

    Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenford, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenford, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ultra Electronics in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    - Original intro through an agent
    - 2 step interview process plus psychometric and numerical and verbal reasoning tests
    - 1st interview explored technical depth - interviewer had good technique and it was a structured interview
    - 2nd interview was poorly structured with 3 senior staff all differing in opinion of the job description and therefore unable to clearly communicate it, it also differed to the job description and title sent to me prior to the interviews.
    - 2nd interview questioning lacked depth and purpose to understand the candidates experience and background, I had to volunteer to state why I wanted the job.
    - My perception was that the interviewers were not experienced in interview technique
    - I came away from the 2nd interview not wanting role
    - lucky because I was not offered position
    - However no feedback provided at all from either first or second interview
    - As others have mentioned parking on site is very difficult

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenford, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ultra Electronics in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first stage was a CV and cover letter.

    I was called for an phone interview within 2 weeks of applicaitons.

    Phone interview had standard competency questions:

    Why do you want to work for Ultra

    Tell us a time when...

    I can't remember the other questions

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were not difficult as such,

      This was my first interview so I was nervous and froze at times.

      Also it is not a race to answer the question quickly, it is ok if you take a minute or two to think of an well thought out answer!!
