    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at National Federation of Independent Business in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had to do a personality test first, and according to how they score you on your test they determine if you are right to do this position, then I was contacted for a personal interview and was hired on the spot. Most of the people are professional however, what I was promised as far as territory and amount of renewals wasn't even close to what was promised in the interview.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    It is straight commission, so there is no negotiating other than there is flexibility in the territory that they will assign to you

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at National Federation of Independent Business in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was largely behavioral, asking for my impressions or wide ranging topics and what different ideas "mean to me". My resume was completely ignored, as it was expected that I provide my experience through story telling that fit the interviewer's needs. I felet the interview went well, but was not offered the position.

    Principal Programmer Analyst Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at National Federation of Independent Business in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was impressively quick, starting with a phone call with the national director and followed up by a final round two hour onsite interview with same as well as the team members. The interview was a mix of your "standard" software development interview where you are asked increasingly difficult technical questions about the Microsoft Technology stack, personality and management style questions, as well as coding and logic puzzles to solve on the whiteboard. You didn't need to solve the problems completely on your own as they would provide hints if you asked good questions, since they were looking for problem solving skills and how you think on the fly. They also did not ask any technical questions that were unduly difficult but they also didn't ask questions you could have simply looked up on the web ahead of time. The offer followed an hour after the onsite interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Be prepared to discuss design patterns, principles, and how to handle various scenarios a team lead would face.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The team, technology stack, and position were great. The compensation and the cost of the medical plan unfortunately were not a fit.
