    Senior Devops Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ultimate Software in March 2017.

    Interview

    I scheduled 2 phone screens with Kevin Male from Talent Acquisition and got stood up twice. We would agree to do a phone screen a day before but somehow I end up sitting around waiting for his call. It's been 6 weeks since initial contact and now they want to schedule a 3rd call? lol.

    Administrative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ultimate Software (Atlanta, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on line and I get an email to confirm time and date for telephone interview. The interviewer called on time and was very short with direct basic questions.

    I am very surprised that for a company with such great ratings, their HR/Recruiters truly lack people skills with common courtesy. They do not respond at all to calls, emails, and for that reason I give them a no star and bad service review. For us seeking opportunities, the hiring process is so slow and frustrating, its good to know when a position has been closed, or they are moving on without us so we know where we stand.

    Customer Success Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ultimate Software (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email from a Talent Acquisition Specialist expressing interest in my profile for Customer Success Specialist position in Atlanta and was asked to schedule a phone interview. Immediately after receiving an email, I called her and there was no reply to my calls that day and the next day. As I have been very excited for this opportunity and have been following the company closely, to work in Ultimate Software has been on my top priority list. After 3 days, I receive an email from the Talent Specialist saying she was sorry she missed my calls as she is out of town and scheduled a phone interview for Tuesday [11/1/2016] at 1 pm and after much preparation and looking forward to the call, I have not received the call. I then call her back and leave a voicemail and an email asking if we're still good for an interview but there has been no reply. I am surprised at the unprofessional-ism and truly disappointed with the experience so far and its unfortunate as most people have had wonderful experiences with the Company.
