Graduate Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FDM Group (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)).

Interview

Phone screening (really basic questions asked and HR provide you with the job nature), phone interview (average - just the HR trying to understand you more) & assessment day (a whole day long and spent most of the time waiting)

Interview Questions

  • Phone screening and phone interview were OK - just standard questions and can be found on Glassdoor
    Assessment day was as expected, 2 test (Venn diagram & IT app test) + 3 one-on-one interview

    HR was really nice and welcoming but the academic trainers and account managers were being rude, all of them were on their phone while interviewing and they were repeatedly asking the same question because they weren't focusing the whole time. I did NOT feel respected as a candidate. I could tell from their words that all trainees have no choice on job allocation after the academic training. Overall, the tests are OK if you go with preparation, it's just the interviews' attitude disappointed me (remember they're not HR, they are managers that will match you to different jobs).

    Knowing the company, why IT sector, why this role, what do you know about this role, core value of FDM.... a lot more but managable questions if you're well prepared. Answer them confidently & strongly is a key point in my opinion.   1 Answer

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Initial Application, 10 minute telephone interview, 20 minute video interview and half day assessment centre. Very quick response for technical role, slower for business focused role. Telephone interview just around why FDM, why that role and why you rather than specific questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Video interview: Talk about a hobby you enjoy doing, why are you passionate about a career in technology. How you have overcome a set back, what would you do it if you were struggling to meet a deadline, what you would do is someone in the team was an expert in the work you had been assigned   Answer Question

    1) application

    4) assessment centre (declined)

    I read about their contracts online and declined the assessment centre invitation. The salary is low and the contract is cheesy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    After a short phone screen with a recruiter, an online video interview was arranged. This interview was pre-recorded and consisted of 6 strength-based questions (given below). I had 5 days to complete the interview, and was notified soon after of my progress to the final stage assessment day. The assessment day ran from 9am - 5pm, starting with an introduction and tour of the building. There were 3 tests - Venn and set notation, IT aptitude and maths, all of which were very easy. Finally there were 3 quick-fire interviews each of around 7-10 minutes and with their own focus. The process is made very clear to you beforehand by the recruiters so there is nothing unexpected. The interviewers are all very nice and the experience was positive overall.
