    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hagerstown, MD
    Anonymous Employee 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

    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.
