    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    3 steps: 1. Phone interview, 2. Skype or in person, 3. In person. After all 3 interviews you get an offer, or not. The interview process all occurred within 2 weeks of getting a call to set up a phone interview. I received that call within 2 weeks of submitting my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Research the company! You will be asked, in every interview, about details of the company. Then you get the standard strengths/weaknesses questions. I was also asked what my spirit animal was. Some of my coworkers were asked that, some weren't, so have an answer ready.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, but salary is quite generous for the job.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ultimate Software (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied through their website. We set a time to talk over the phone. The recruiter did not call me and hasn't heard back since then. I tried to contact him, yet no response for weeks. This wasn't a fortune 100 list attitude. The hiring department should get better responsibility with professional manner.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ultimate Software (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position via LinkedIn on November 2. I received an email on November 15 inviting me to an open house the next day. I attended the open house on November 16 where I learned more about Ultimate Software and the position itself. I had a short one on one interview to discuss my job history. The very next morning, November 17, I received an email moving me to the next step and completed the analytical assessment. I was very nervous about it but I must've did well because they called me on November 22 to schedule a phone interview. My phone interview was on November 23 and I received very constructive criticism after we completed interviewing. Although, hard to swallow, it was very much needed and helped me tremendously. We also scheduled my Skype interview. Had my Skype interview on November 29 and it was very laid back but straight to the point. I felt really good about it. They called me the same day at the end of the business day and offered me the position and I GLADLY ACCEPTED!!!!!!!!!!
