    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ascendum Solutions in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was hired on the first interview. I should have thought more about a company that would hire a six digit employee on the first interview. The process was simple. I wrote the owner a letter outlining my background with a copy of a resume. He told the sales manager at the time to get me interviewed. The salary negotiation was funny. They came back well under what I expected, but I didn't complain. I usually double my base pay in bonus or commission opportunities.

    Don't be vague, tell them exactly what it will take to hire you. Make it high, because if you are educated and a professional, you will be gone in three months.

    QA Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Ascendum Solutions in April 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the HR for contract based QA opening in USA. The HR was so nice and she scheduled for the interview . The interviewer called 30 mins early the schedule. So , make yourself available ahead of the schedule. The interviewer was the very worst person , out of all the interviewer I ever spoke. She was more curious in knowing more about my career break and the reason behind it.
    She said she had only very less time , and had continous meeting then . Why the hell she accepted to take the interview that day. She was less diplomatic , more nosy , and tried to assume the details and never allowed me to elaborate on the details I was trying to explain. She interrupted me abruptly everytime I tried to explain something. Overall , it's so bitter experience and that interviewer is not fit for that lead role. Even if I've selected I would 've rejected the offer. POOR TEAM !

    it was a terribly slow process with lack of full commitment to the process by ascendum. Lack of leadership showed in the initial phases and continues through today and will continue I'm sure.

    Instructional Systems Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Blue Ash, OH

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ascendum Solutions (Blue Ash, OH) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me based on locating my resume, for an "urgent-fill" position with Kroger. It took forever to set up the interview because the hiring manager (also an Ascendum employee, not Kroger) was fairly new (around 2 years experience) and was overwhelmed with her duties because she lacked serious time management skills; one of Ascendum's Competency/Skills requirements. She was an ex-Reynolds & Reynolds employee and that most of her current employees now with her at Kroger, also worked with her at R & R. After several interview cancellations and attempts to reschedule based only on her convenience, I finally stated that the timing may not be right just now, then all of a sudden she finally agreed to stay and meet with me. The interview when great and at the end we both agreed that I would be a great fit and that she would call the recruiter the next day to finalize the details - there was no doubt that I got the job. I called the recruiter to tell him how the interview went and that we both agreed that I got the job. He said that he would call me the next day after talking with the hiring manager to finalize the details. When he finally called me, the bad news was that, even after having only positive feedback about me from the interview, she decided that I wouldn't be a good fit for her team after all. So, my advice is to pass these jokers up. They are unprofessional, at best, and the hiring manager will deceive you, lie to you and then blind side you. She is not the right person for the position. She lacks the skill and experience to be a manager. And no matter how good your experience is, it all comes down to one thing... her agenda. Unless you worked with her at Reynold and Reynolds. If Ascendum calls you, hang up on the bums.

    • 3) I asked the interviewer: "What will be the first important task that you would need the person you are planning on hiring to accomplish?"

    Negotiation

    Lax, dishonest, unprofessional, filled with shortcomings. Until you're actually sitting at a desk working on the project... don't trust them when they say you got the job. The hiring manager is a liar with a hidden agenda.
