Java Developer Interview

Java Developer
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at FDM Group in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online and a couple weeks later was scheduled for a phone interview. The interview was very short and not technical. After passing the phone interview I was brought in for an assessment day where other possible candidates for the FDM academy program were also present. They gave a short presentation to outline the company and the commitments needed for the program. They then gave us an assessment test that consisted of a few simple programming and logic questions. After the test came another short presentation. We were then given three short five minute interviews with three different people. Finally we were required to fill out an hr form and an anonymous feedback form.
