    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ultra Electronics in October 2016.

    Interview

    Started with an in-depth review of the position and requirements by phone. Interview in person at the job site. Was offered the job the next day. Requested 3 business days to weigh options. Upon returning to accept the job, manager informed me that it had been offered to another candidate. Very unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ultra Electronics.

    Interview

    Process took 2 weeks. I got referred by my professor for the position and I got the interview. It was delayed almost a full week because they had meetings and golf tournaments. Interview was simple and the guys who interviewed me were very nice and genuine guys. Got the job pretty seamlessly. Surprise background check and drug test a day later and the HR rep that needed to set up the appointments left for vacation when I had to go way out of my way to fax her the info.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ultra Electronics (Austin, TX) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Easy, asked several question about the job, and many cultural questions. People that interviewed seemed unqualified to do the interviewing. There was no questioning of past work history. They did offer water during the interview which was nice, but found the location of the office to be awful.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ultra Electronics (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    A friend referred me to the company. I applied online via a standard application. I received a call from the recruiter about a week or so later for a phone interview. She asked me questions about my experience, background, and comfort level with taking the necessary steps for a security clearance.

    A day or two later the recruiter called me to schedule an interview with a couple of the other writers and two people from other departments. The writers were very friendly and laid back. They didn't ask any difficult questions. They just wanted to make sure I could do the job.

    A couple of days later the recruiter called to inform me I was selected for the position.

    Interview Questions

    • There really weren't any difficult questions. There were some behavioral questions that I had to think about for a few seconds.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The salary offered was lower then what I wanted, but the recruiter would not negotiate. They informed me that potential bonuses would make up the difference.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ultra Electronics (Austin, TX) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Three interviews: 1. HR interview - basic questions to make sure you are a fit, I guess. Length: 15 minutes? 2. Technical phone interview - talked to an engineer who asked some basic programming questions mostly focused on C++. Length: About 45 minutes. 3. Onsite interview - two one hour sessions with two interviewers. Questions were kind of random. I was asked about past experience, I was given some more technical questions, and some behavioral questions.

    Overall, the process was smooth and not very intimidating. Everybody I talked to were very nice and intelligent. I was offered the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a fundamental concept in object-oriented programming.   1 Answer
