        UC system benefits are unbeatable. The work environment is positive and demanding. Bright and motivated young people all around you, all of the time.


        I have no cons for this place

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Project Manager

      I interviewed at new company for the same role I currently do, so I have all the skills they need and more. I went through 5 stages of interviews, including pp in person and final 1 was on Friday over week ago. I was expecting to have news by last Friday. No news, so I emailed them last Friday asking for indication when can I expect the results,but we have Tuesday evening today, and no one emailed me back. This is the 1st time I have to wait so long after final interview for news-Should I worry?



      How long to typically hear back from a mid-sized company (200-300 people) after an initial interview? Their internal recruiter told me “a few days” and it’s been a week. Interview went very well (I thought!) Thinking of following up on Thursday if I don’t hear.


      Customer Service Representative

      A sign? Sheer luck, or coincidence? The stars are aligned? Is there a full moon tonight? I kid you not... I was in the middle of writing a follow up email to a recruiter for a job I applied to almost 2 weeks ago. As I was about to hit send, I noticed an email from that very company that arrived like a few minutes earlier with: "Next steps - Interview" *been off 13+ months, only 2nd interview. Wish me luck!!!🤞
