    Pros

    One of the few companies that is capable of providing the type of software needed in the IT industry and always on the leading edge of development.

    Management encourages you to learn more about the technologies we use and to contribute your ideas during the design phase of developing new software, regardless of which part of the team you are on.

    The number of Vacation Days, Sick Days, Optional Holidays, and Paid holidays we get usually covers life’s minor hick-ups. For those of us that work hard, Management will work with you if something major comes along.

    We celebrate birthdays and go out at random times for Company Lunches and Dinners.

    We always have some sort of cool Holiday Party in December.

    We have a free membership to a Gym and free covered parking.

    When someone does something especially awesome, they will usually get a bonus check.

    We have one of the best Medical & Dental plans out there.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is weekend work when a new product is being released. However this is not really a con as anytime you are asked to come in on the weekend, you get an additional Vacation Day in its place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Altima Technologies in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer was unprofessional to say the least. He was 15 minutes late. He first tried to guess my religion based on my last name. He read through my resume, put it away & asked me what I was good at because resumes did not mean much to him. He then asked me if I had any situations preventing me to do my job; like taking care of anyone, etc. (because if I did, working there was not for me). He looked old yet he said, "people work their best their first ten years, that is their prime." He referred to my 15 years of professional experience with a great company as a liability for him and that he would have to take a risk. I am under 40. He kept asking me why he should trust me to perform. He asked me about salary and if I did not measure up, I could be fired within days! I felt insulted and interrogated. I kept wondering why they chose me to interview then???

    Interview Questions

    • No technical questions were asked, he was too busy wondering how he can trust me perform exceptionally without asking me any technical questions.   Answer Question
