    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ultimate Software in September 2019.


    The interview process was quick and easy! I applied for the role and a recruiter reach out to me for a phone interview in less than a week and the phone interview was AMAZING. Made me feel comfortable right from the beginning answering all my questions. From there I moved through the process of have a video interview with the direct Manager and then two phone interviews with a colleague and a peer. The peer interview was awesome and new for me! I am so impressed of the whole process and how the lines of communication stayed opened.
