IT Graduate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FDM Group (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in January 2019.

Interview

The interview started at 9am in the Glasgow Site. We were first given an hour-long presentation about FDM as a company and their values. Then we were taken on a tour of the building and explained the different paths for training. After that we had 3 sets of 5 question interviews with 3 different interviewers whom have different roles. After the interviews we were given a lunch break and after 30min. We had to conduct 4 assessments. The first was to test your English, the next was to do with Maths, the next was a puzzle-based game and finally the last was a VEN diagram assessment, which was difficult. After that we could leave. In total I left around 5pm and started at 9am.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FDM Group (London, England (UK)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I did this interview a while ago, so the whole interview process might be different now. There was a phone interview asking basic questions like why you want to join and such. Then there was the assessment where you do the usual numerical and situational judgement tests. However, you had to do three more interviews with three different people. Four questions each.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group (London, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by a video interview. Something needs to be in place to replace the video interview as some people cannot talk to a screen as there is no to and fro as there would be in a normal interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FDM Group (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through university. I interviewed at FDM Group. I had a video interview where I had to answer four questions (about myself, IT passion and flexibility). Then I was invited in the assessment day. The math test were too easy and the IT attitude more challenging. The interview question was focused on the strengths and character of the candidate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had to answer 6 online questions. A video would describe you the situation and you had 30 second to prepare, and about 2.5 minutes to answer and record yourself. You could not watch the recording, or re-record it. Overall, it was a bit awkward starring at the screen, telling you to stare at the camera, but it was also not the most awkward thing ever.

    Interview Questions

    • Something along the lines: Show me a time where you showed flexibility and how you adapted to that situation (phrased differently).   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group in September 2017.

    Interview

    Be sure that they have no idea about your background.
    3 interviewers, 6 questions each, no question about my expertise and studies. Only generic questions, just to have a conversation.
    3 tests: maths (60'), venn diagrams(20'), altitude (60'): trivial

    No willing to work with them since I find the program very poor and not tailor-made for you in comparison with what the other companies offer.

    First of all: unpaid training. A training that I would be with other people who have different backgrounds (graduated from BA in physics, business etc).
    I graduated from my MSc and I already have a full time working experience, so I think that the training would be so trivial and time-wasting for me (and unpaid!).

    Second point: A 2-year contract. Don't try to break it, you'll have to pay £20k for the training you had and you didn't get paid for. Also, the 2-year contract means that it's not a permanent job.

    Third point: Not that sure if you can negotiate any relocation. I think that you have to relocate in case of need...

    I knew even some days before the assessment day that if I had an offer I would decline it.
    I went just for the assessment experience and to know if what other people say about the program over the Internet is true. Finally yes, it's true...

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FDM Group (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    10 Minute phone interview, I had applied for the IT graduate program but was informed I was not eligible because I did not have a 2.1 in my undergad and that the 1.1 in my MS.c did not suffice. Was offered an alternative role in which I am still interviewing for but will more than likely not take the job.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FDM Group (London, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    CV application followed by phone call, video interview and finally assessment centre. The video interview was straight forward although it may be a bit strange if you have never done one before since you speak directly to the camera rather than to another person. The assessment centre involved three tests which were set theory/venn diagrams, aptitude test and a maths test followed by three 5 minute interviews. Overall the process was interesting and very informative

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at FDM Group in December 2015.

    Interview

    The process was quick and only took around a week from when I applied to getting an phone interview. It was quite quick and easy so that is a plus, but I felt he interviewer was quite negative about any further questions you had.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions include; Why FDM and what do you know about the company? Why do you want to apply for a role in IT? What IT forums do you follow? What do you know about finance? Name an upcoming problem in the IT industry?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FDM Group in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 6 recorded questions. While the question was completed, I had 40 seconds to prepare my answer or skip that time limitation and get direct to the answer. The answers were recorded and uploaded immediately. The maximum time of answer was 2 minutes, but it was possible to stop the answer at the point you would like, within those 2 minutes.
