    I have been working at Ultra Electronics full-time (more than 8 years)


    Ultra Electronics is a company for life, having joined almost 9 years ago now. The employee benefits are vast and are the best I’ve seen at any company. Staff and managers are friendly and professional and always encourage employee development.
    The Ultra Electronics culture allows employees to grow and progress through the company by offering on the job training and advice.


    None that I can think of, apart from the occasional IT problem! Ultra Electronics are much better off than most over engineering firms at the moment, never having made a loss, always in profit. This is a company with a bright future ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to employees and keep doing what you’re doing.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ultra Electronics in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called by a recruiter for the role and they submitted my CV to a consultancy. I was then interviewed by telephone where the interviewer just went through my CV. I arrived at the site to have a face-to-face interview. I couldn't find a parking space and there were no visitors parking. One of the building contractors said I could use his space and I went into the building. The reception staff were extremely rude about me using his empty space and told me I had to move my car. When I asked where I could park they pointed vaguely. After looking around the estate I could not find a parking space so I phoned up the interviewer and told him that I was canceling.
