    Quality Assurance Interview

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with people in the Human Resources department, as well as the heads of the various operations teams. The interview room was very cold, and I was rather nervous, but the staff was warm and inviting. They gave me a tour of the office, which I thought was a nice touch, and helped me see what I was in store for.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at FedBid in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed and got the position about a week later. Started later that month and then was on board. Training was one week long and nothing ridiculous. Free lunch was provided and the instructor was great. No complaints as far as skill set and experience gained. The only thing I didn't like was vagueness of pay rate and things of that nature.

    QA Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at FedBid in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through online posting, got response after 10 days. HR scheduled a phone screen after postponing couple of times. HR was late to the interview by 10 minutes.In the interview from the first minute onwards I can sense that the person on the other side is bit pushy and controlling. In the phone interview what I have noticed is that the non-technical HR is asking all technical questions that were given by somebody. I confidently answered all the questions. For the question of my expected compensation, I have mentioned the current market value for the position with some flexibility….that is it, the conversation has ended quickly.

    Interview Questions
    • The HR person did not gave me a chance to ask any questions at the end of the interview, which I feel is very rude..…..overall I did not enjoy the interview and I will not recommend this company for anyone with some years of experience in the IT industry. Later through my network, I come to know that this is a CHEAP shop and always offer substandard salaries. Glad that I did not waste valuable time in my career by spending at this company.

      Good luck with your job search!

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at FedBid.

    Interview Details

    Hired through on campus interview and career fair. Met with VP on campus, then went to FB HQ to meet with 4~ people and write a paragraph on what I knew about FedBid.

    Overall pretty easy- they interview a lot of people and tend to interview everyone pretty fast, so the questions are really around fit and ability to work long hours.

    I applied after I received an email sent out to everyone in my college. A recruiter emailed to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was with the same recruiter. After the phone interview, I was invited to interview on-site with a Senior manager and supervisor. Both the phone interview and on-site interview were mainly behavioral questions.

    Market Specialist Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Vienna, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vienna, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at FedBid in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met Recruiter at Job Fair. Emailed application. Initial phone screening then called in for on-site interview. Typical behavioral questions. One interview with HR head and another with supervisor.

    Every time I called their office throughout the recruiting process (~10 times) the phone went straight to voicemail. I had to communicate with 3 different people throughout the process, all of which were uncoordinated in their efforts to reach me.

    Was originally supposed to interview with 2 staff members, only 1 was at work that day. The interviewer (young professional) was very standoff-ish, and melancholy, didn't crack a smile the entire time. I'm not sure if it was a ploy or not, but it was uncomfortable just based on the demeanor he displayed.

    They also walk you in through the floor where everyone works. It's all newly graduated young professionals, but the atmosphere was awful. There wasn't a sound other than typing and a couple people on the phone, everyone looked absolutely miserable, so I'm not sure why they show this to perspective employees. Between the demeanor of the guy that interviewed me and the environment I saw, it looked like a horrid place to work.
