    Software Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ultimate Software (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Stage 1: HR phone screening; Stage 2: 4-person panel interview

    - Overall unprofessional interview, panel did not read the resume judging by the questions asked, was rude....interview felt more like an interrogation (they asked for the names of the people I worked with from managers and colleagues).
    - They conducted a background check without consent (despite withdrawing candidacy).
    - Realized later that this panel consisted of acquisition folks (probably not trained in soft skills for interviewing for a large company).
    - HR was extremely professional and deserves the only star.

    - DO NOT get fooled by the reviews on Glassdoor and the Careers page on the corporate website as this doesn't apply to the Toronto office.
    - Office seems to be less diverse (mostly new grads, apart from mgmt).
    - Location good and is a new open-concept office.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ultimate Software (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and it took a month to start the interview process

    The interview process consisted of 3 stages.
    1. Phone interview
    2. Hacker rank questions
    3. 2 onsite interviews

    The first interview was technical and the interviewers seemed unhappy to be conducting the interviews and felt like they were disinterested from the get go.
    Simple questions and white boarding session included database normalization, OOP,
    Algorithm.

    Interview with management was even worse, they also seemed to be disinterested and annoyed to be there, it almost felt like they were just going though the motions.

    After the interviews I was told I would be hearing from them in a week, however, that week turned into a two months just to be told they have a hiring freeze and I never got a formal yes or no, needless to say we weren’t a good fit.

    -Probably worst communication I’ve ever seen from HR.

    -I’d be very sceptical of the company reviews, my personal experience does not reflect many of the reviews posted.

    Software Developer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ultimate Software (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Onsite interview. I could tell immediately that this company does not respect candidates' time. I had already completed an online coding test and received positive feedback from an on-campus recruiter. However, it took over 2 weeks to schedule the interview because the HR person-in-charge kept telling me her previously proposed times were actually not available (this happened 4 times). Obviously either this company did not care about candidates or they invited far too many candidates than reasonable for interviews (I believe the latter is true). Regardless, once I arrived onsite there was literally nobody to be seen - not at the front desk, not walking around, nowhere. I had to wait 20 minutes for an engineer to see me and even more time for the front desk person to come back and let me in. The interview was alright - the engineers were very friendly, but they asked exactly 1 technical question and talked mostly about how great the company is. I fail to see how this would prove any candidate's competency at all. I was told I would receive feedback but instead got an automated rejection letter. As an HR company, this place is pretty pathetic, and I will never apply here again and ensure others at my campus hear my experience.

    Manager Role Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ultimate Software (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    It was a telephone interview - the interviewer was 30 mins late, i did get a email that they would be late and could reschedule, but that was already 10 mins into the scheduled time, so I waited as I made arrangements to be out of office in my current role. .

    The next steps were to have a call with the hiring manager the following week and I had heard nothing in a week. I reached out to the interviewer (HR) and three weeks later still nothing. Unfortunately, I would have expected a return email with a update either way. I booked time out of my schedule to meet. I understand that really experience with one person and not the whole, company, but it really questions the "people first" mission.
