    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Progress.

    Interview

    I applied through LinkedIN. Received an email 2 days later from the company recruiter to set up a phone screening. Stacy was kind and helpful in explaining the compensation and base salary, and made sure I was aware this would be a remote position indefinitely. After the phone screening I was asked to set up a time for a 30 minute zoom interview with the person who would be my sales manager. Very simple questions, really just trying to figure out if you can have a back and forth conversation and have an interest in pursuing sales as a career. The next day I received an email asking to schedule a time to meet with 2 AE's I'd be working with. Again, just trying to make sure you can have a back and forth conversation, can honestly explain why you want to get into sales, and that you know what you're getting into. Overall a very positive experience.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Worcester, MA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Progress (Worcester, MA (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Speedy but somewhat Awkward. Interview Arranger and Telephone Interviewer both seemed a bit flustered but I would chalk that up to new interviewer jitters. Honestly they seemed more nervous than I was. The screener was, however, very refreshingly concerned with my experience at the company and seemed focused on making sure that I fulfilled my own desires. As someone looking for Robotics Work, software is not my first choice but I am looking to build up my resume and portfolio to achieve that later, a fact which he seemed quite happy with. Overall I appreciated his candor and honesty, and I was offered a face to face at the end of the call.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Progress (Bedford, MA (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of an informal phone screen and then an onsite. The onsite was an hour-long, with mostly behavioral and one technical portion. For the technical portion, I was given the option of one 10 minute whiteboard coding problem or several smaller, more generic CS questions. I chose the latter path.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Progress (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process was very relaxed, I applied for the position, the next day I had a phone screen interview with my Recruiter which lasted 30minutes. That same day after the phone screen, I then made it to the next round speaking with one of the managers over the phone for 30minutes which went really well. The next step, my recruiter reached out to me and told me that I was going to the next round, which was the on-site interview. The on-site interview lasted about an hour. It went extremely well, they asked about my background, and also things I like to do outside of work. Afterwards, I followed up with my recruiter after the interview. Then I received the offer. Overall, the process was great, and my recruiter stayed in contact with me every step of the way

    Contract Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Progress (Bedford, MA (US)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on line, was contacted quickly and went in to interview with 3 people. Now, 3 weeks later, no feedback at all despite having reached out with follow up emails. Gotta say, very disappointed in the lack of professionalism ... especially for a recruiting role! If the recruiters are the "face" of the organization initially, and this is the way they operate with candidates, wow!! Thanks but no thanks. I suppose the reputation that Progress has in the market is apparently well deserved.
