    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is a little bit confusing for this company. It has connections with private recruiters and looks like the only way to get into it is via a recruiter. Interview process takes 2-3 weeks. The interviewers does not seem to have hands on knowledge. They only have some theoretical questions. Overall I am not very optimistic about this company. It does not seem to be a good fit for a software engineer who seeks rapid development with advanced technology.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had an initial HR interview, which asked some technical questions, then another phone interview that was completely technical, and then on-site interview which again had 1 hour technical interview followed by manager round. They gave little input to the recruiter so I had little clue on what to expect for on site interview.

    Interview Details

    Multiple Interview Rounds, 1 at career services, 1 at office they bring about 50 kids for just 1 spot so it is very competitive. My interviewer was not a very fun person to talk to, but she seemed intelligent. She definitely did not sell me on the position or the lifestyle.
