    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hagerstown, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hagerstown, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at First Data.

    Interview Details

    Interview was set up by a recruiter. Met with two members of management and one developer. Management asked the usual HR type questions like "how are your communications skills". The developer had a really thick accent and was rapid firing technical questions with dubious terminology. I basically blew off the interview because they really seemed like a sweatshop that would prefer H1-B candidates.

    Interview Questions
    • The technical questions that involved a language barrier with their developer.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at First Data.

    Interview Details

    I was contact by the recruiter to schedule an interview and a few days later I ended up interviewing with one of their directors. He was cool and overall the questions weren't anything out of the ordinary... I also had to speak with him and his supervisor over a conference call but still as long as you do your research about the company and have 2 or 3 stories to tell about a time when you faced adversity.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at First Data in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The entire interviewing process was very easy, everyone was very nice and easy to talk to. Despite repeated signals and comments of being the best qualified candidate and that " everyone was very impressed" I did not receive an offer. Plain explanation of "we decided to go with an internal candidate".
