    Associate Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coral Springs, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coral Springs, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at First Data in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online; received a phone message (home phone and cell) about a week later inviting me to an interview the following week and this was followed by a confirmation email. The interview lasted about 40 minutes. It was conducted by the manager and team leader who were extremely courteous, friendly and more than happy to answer all of my questions. A very pleasant experience; I assume the position was offered to a candidate with qualifications that more closely matched the job description.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at First Data in April 2013.

    Three interviews.

    The first two interviews were very basic. I met with the sales director and we chatted about a variety of things. Interview went very well.

    Second interview was a 20 min phone interview with another sales director which went well and was very easy.

    Third interview was a little more intense. VP along with the sales director. Some questions about why you chose sales.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was straight forward through HR. They set up two interviews for different position on the same day. First interview went ok but not a right match. Second interview went much better. They asked few questions and mostly had me answer random questions that made more sense after I worked there. I was right out of college and did recieve a job offer. They have a great training program for new hires.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at First Data.

    Interview Details

    Very unprofessional. Not prepared. Dont think they even reviewed my resume prior to the phone call. Interviewer was late to the call and then the rest of the interviewers rolled in way past the scheduled time slot. I was NOT impressed.
