    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group (Washington, DC) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Rather long, consistent of Informational Phone Interview, Strength-based Video Recordings, Assessment Test, Skype Interviews and On-Site Interviews. Typically about a week of delay in between stages which really drags out the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FDM Group (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Met FDM Group at a University Career Fair. They got back to me after the career fair letting me know about their Graduate Development Program and I was interested. I then had to do a basic phone screen where they asked if I was interested in the program and asked me some basic behavioral questions. I then had to do a video interview where I answered some more standard behavioral questions. Got an email back saying they wanted me to come in for an Interview Day and I did. Before the Interview Day I had to take a basic 45 minute competency test which was easy. They told me the Interview Day would be a long day of examinations and interviews. I prepared pretty hard for technical and behavioral questions only to arrive there and be told the day would consist of a presentation on the company along with three 5-10 minute interviews. They asked me some easy technical questions, and the 2 other behavioral interviews were also straightforward. Got an offer and rejected it because the salary didn't reflect the effort I put into building my resume and the amount of work I would be doing should I have accepted it. It wasn't hard to get an offer and the behavioral interviews were good practice.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group (New York, NY) in August 2018.

    Interview

    This company tries really hard to attract recent grads and vets, but it is very shady. I went through the interview process and everything was pretty straight forward and easy. They asked me about my technical skills and personal experiences. I had two phone interviews, a video interview, an aptitude test, and a series of Skype interviews (because I was too far away from NY or DC). The scam comes in with payment and the training program.
    I opted to do the New York location for the few months of training. They do not arrange for any type of housing or assistance, and while in the program they pay $13.50/hr. In New York City, that is not even close to a livable wage. The recruiter told me "many people in our program have roommates, we can help arrange that for you!" as if that is some type of selling point. After the training, you have a three month period to find placement. If you do find a placement, they offered $45,000 the first year and $50,000 the second year. The company that you are placed with can part ways at any time. They claim to have a 98% placement rate, but based off of the reviews here, it doesn't seem very likely. AND if you do end up quitting for a livable wage elsewhere, you have to pay them back for $30,000. They are paying $13.50/hr for you to take this course and dedicate your time, but if you are dissatisfied with these horrible wages you have to pay THEM back? They get a say in where you are living for the next two years and you get terrible pay to live in an expensive metropolitan area, while they take a huge cut of your pay. This job sounded almost too good to be true at first, but I am glad that I did more research before accepting any offer from them.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    FDM has a whole "interview day" process where you meet with interviewers and take a few tests to gauge competence. I met with 4 interviewers then took a set of assessments on IT, math, and logic that weren't too intimidating. Definitely helps to be outgoing and charismatic!

    The process is pretty standard. You take an aptitude test. The tests are very easy. They just want to ensure that you are not an idiot. Then they ask you behavioral questions and then technical questions. The entire process takes about 4 hours.

You get training that will prepare you for your role with a client. They cover a lot of topics that you might not use in your placement, but they offer specialized training if you need it like if you were placed in a c# role your training would switch to that. They prepare you for interviews and help you get placed in a role on site with big clients. Good way to get that first two years of experience.” – Full Review
