    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Owatonna, MN
    Anonymous Employee in Owatonna, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Federated Insurance.

    Interview Details

    I got to the headquarters and was immediately greeted by one of the HR staff. She brought me to a small room with a booklet of awkwardly laid out questions, and an awkwardly looking answer sheet. She gave me 20 minutes to solve 24 problems that are ridiculous for the position I was applying for. They were very confusing math story problems with only variables. You will read a story problem where variables are listed, and you have to select the correct math equation that shows the math.

    From the HR Lady: "Most people don't finish."

    After completing half of the answers, I received a new set of problems with a 35 minute time limit. It didn't seem too hard. After completing the two tests, an HR rep walked in and said I didn't pass the test, so I couldn't go onto the actual face-to-face interviews. I applied for a software developer, and didn't even get to answer a single question relevant to it.

    The test should have been given prior to this "in house" interview. I would recommend making it an online process.

    Interview Questions
    • Example: "If speed (s) is constant and the percentage of force upon in increases at random (f) what will happen if you multiply the gravitational pull of the moon (m) by s?

      That's the style. You would have to provide the formula.
