    UI Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at FTI Consulting in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by folks who presented themselves as the best at what they do, however you will discover a lot of the development they do is very outdated.

    You will see arrogance at its finest.

    It was also very interesting to see a person interviewing me with absolute no background with my field and I can understand this if he was interviewing me for making sure there is a good culture / personality fit however he was asking detailed questions without really knowing what he was talking about.
