    Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at First Advantage in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Very slow process. First interview with hiring manager, general questions on background and skills, a lot of discussion on the company and department structure. Didnt't hear back for a month, when second interview was scheduled with hiring manager and two peers. In the interim the job description had changed and required managerial experience which I had very little of. Didn't get an offer. Nice people, seemed like a good work environment.

    Web Application Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at First Advantage in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview was brief and rushed. I had a short one on one with the manager which was good but found out there most senior developer was only on the job 2 years and the manager had only been there a couple more years. The panel test was a little ridiculous, allot of questions asked about software and tool usage that would only be gained at this job.

    Overall I didn't get a great feeling from the interview and was left in the interview room waiting for the manager only to be walked out by an employee.
