    Former Employee - Associate Bank Examiner  in  Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Associate Bank Examiner in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Long term benefits from working as an Examiner at the Federal Reserve are enormous. Definitely get an edge up.

    Cons

    Very hierarchical structure. Communication to employees is minimal and on a need-to-know basis. Very political (office politics) organization - more so than others I've experienced. Salary is low in relation to the expectations of the position and in comparison to the FDIC and OCC. Despite having the resources, the technology of the Fed was substantially behind its peers.

    Senior .NET Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter from Judge Group, who arranged the initial phone screen. The phone screen was a little more than two hours long, and the interview had a list of about 100 questions, all purely technical memorization. They didn't check problem-solving skills, but basically just memorization of syntax. I thought it was a bit ridiculous really, because if you don't have just about everything memorized, don't expect to pass. A fast Googler could ace the interview if they were able to keep the keyboard/mouse clicks silent. It was not based on comprehension but really mostly just memorization of syntax, commands, keywords, etc. I was surprised that this was how they filter out interviewees.

    Interview Questions
    • What is the most common test pattern?. This is mostly common sense for a good developer (which I consider myself to be) and I know how to write rock-solid unit test methods, and I've seen this "pattern" written in different ways, but this is one question I got wrong. It's like asking someone the name of the knot used to tie a knot in pair of shoes. Most people know how to tie a pair of shoes, but who really remembers the name of the knot?   View Answer
