    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at First Data (Hagerstown, MD).

    Interview

    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
