    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Hagerstown, MD
    Anonymous Employee in Hagerstown, MD
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed 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

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

    Senior Business Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Sacramento, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 5 months - interviewed at First Data in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Six interviews; No offer. I was contacted several times by a recruiter to apply. The first interview was 7/2013 and the last interview was 12/2013. I had a one-on-one interview, a panel interview, and 4 phone interviews. After the first phone interview, I had to follow up with the recruite who had contacted me several times. I have asked for feedback and have not received anything in return.

    Interview Questions
    • The 'canned' questions were usual: what was your most difficult project, etc.

      They must be looking for something that is not apparent. I usually am made an offer as I do interview well. I have a friend that had the same experience.

      Follow-up would be nice even if you are rejected.
