I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at FDM Group (New York, NY) in January 2013.

Interview

The interview process requires two parts: a technical exam and an interview. The technical exam asks questions on basic computer information, databases, programming languages, and management. After the technical exam they perform a behavior interview asking questions about who you are and what you have accomplished then add in a couple of logic questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group (Atlanta, GA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    It was surprisingly casual. Like it felt like the interviews were just a formality and the interviewers didn't really care, and just were required to interview me. In the US, they are based in NYC and I was in Atlanta at the time and the process was just two short Skype interviews. They were polite though.

    Negotiation

    It wasn't really a negotiation type deal. They just were up front about the salary and for a starting entry level salary for good experience, I was fine with it.

    Full morning of tests, interviews, and presentations. They provided lunch and we got to tour the training academy. You have a technical interview and one with a member of the sales team who tell you more about the process and how you go up for roles with the clients once you are in the training. It was hard but a lot of fun.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group in August 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted shortly after submitting an application to set up a phone interview.
    The phone interview was a pretty standard phone screen, plus questions specific to the company and program (are you willing to commit for 2 years, is the salary acceptable, etc.)
    They I got an email about doing an online assessment, in addition to an email about setting up an in person interview, which supposedly you only get after the assessment. I started the assessment, but the system kicked me off for changing the volume on my computer twice.
    Overall given the (frankly insulting) salary and poorly organized hiring process, I wouldn't really recommend applying unless it's for a different type of position, like recruiting for or running the whole program, rather than participating in it.
