    Customer Advocate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Progress (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was very relaxed, I applied for the position, the next day I had a phone screen interview with my Recruiter which lasted 30minutes. That same day after the phone screen, I then made it to the next round speaking with one of the managers over the phone for 30minutes which went really well. The next step, my recruiter reached out to me and told me that I was going to the next round, which was the on-site interview. The on-site interview lasted about an hour. It went extremely well, they asked about my background, and also things I like to do outside of work. Afterwards, I followed up with my recruiter after the interview. Then I received the offer. Overall, the process was great, and my recruiter stayed in contact with me every step of the way

    Contract Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bedford, MA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Progress (Bedford, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on line, was contacted quickly and went in to interview with 3 people. Now, 3 weeks later, no feedback at all despite having reached out with follow up emails. Gotta say, very disappointed in the lack of professionalism ... especially for a recruiting role! If the recruiters are the "face" of the organization initially, and this is the way they operate with candidates, wow!! Thanks but no thanks. I suppose the reputation that Progress has in the market is apparently well deserved.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morrisville, NC
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Progress (Morrisville, NC) in February 2013.

    Interview

    It was a 3 hours interview. I went to the progress software in Morrisville. I thought interviewers will ask me to code. But actually, other than the questions about my resume and a few technical questions, they asked me many basic questions, such as describe yourself, what is your weakness. The people there were nice.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Worcester, MA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Progress (Worcester, MA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Speedy but somewhat Awkward. Interview Arranger and Telephone Interviewer both seemed a bit flustered but I would chalk that up to new interviewer jitters. Honestly they seemed more nervous than I was. The screener was, however, very refreshingly concerned with my experience at the company and seemed focused on making sure that I fulfilled my own desires. As someone looking for Robotics Work, software is not my first choice but I am looking to build up my resume and portfolio to achieve that later, a fact which he seemed quite happy with. Overall I appreciated his candor and honesty, and I was offered a face to face at the end of the call.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Progress.

    Interview

    About 4 hours total. 30 Minutes per room with 1 to 4 people in each room asking questions. Some technical questions, some questions to feel you out as a person. They really want people who will fit in to the culture (which is more of a friendly atmosphere than a work atmosphere).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Progress (Boston, MA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process what pretty straight forward. There were several interviews starting with the HR manager and then my direct boss. They were quick to respond and honest in their feedback. If the interview process was an honest assessment of how the job would be I would be very happy; however, things have not played out that way.
