    Application

    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.
