    Front End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Fitch Ratings in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the recruiter of a staffing agency for a contract to hire position at Fitch Ratings. I was given a Javascript online test (40 questions) where I performed very well. Then a telephonic call was scheduled with Project Manager. The interview was around 25 mins long. He was very polite and cool. Basically he asked me about my past projects and Agile methodology that I was following in previous projects. No technical question. Before ending the call he told me that he want to call me for onsite interview.

    After one day I got the schedule for onsite interview. My interview was scheduled with 5 persons, which included 2 Senior developers, Project manager, Technical director and HR director.
    They have a huge office in downtown Chicago which was spread on 2 floors in loop area.

     I was asked to sit in a conference room. First 2 senior developers came and asked me about my past projects. Then they started all the basic technical questions of HTML, CSS and Javascript. No difficult questions. They also showed me 2 code snippets and asked the output. Then the Project Manager came and discussed about the project. He didn't ask me any technical questions as already took my telephonic interview. Then I met the Technical director. She was also very cool and soft. We discussed about the project and then I met HR director and she discussed few employment related questions. The onsite interview was 3 hours long.
    The whole process took 3-4 days and the process was very smooth.
    After 2 days I got the response from the vendor that they want me to join as a full time employee instead of contractor. I declined the offer as I was having some commitments with my current employer.
