Junior Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Positive Experience

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group.

Interview

Was contacted by a recruiter after applying for the position. Had a 15-20 minute phone interview about my interest and was asked basic questions.

Passed that section, so then I was asked to do a video interview and an aptitude test. The video interview was 6 pre-recorded questions. The aptitude test was a timed test, 50 minutes max with logic questions.

I made it to the onsite interview, but that hasn't taken place yet.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group (New York, NY) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Starts with a phone interview, then test/screen interview and finally the at location interview. So a lot of little things but none of them are difficult, they just want to know if you have a basic understanding on your topic and are teachable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group in March 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiting and management was unorganized. Technical interviewer was extremely friendly and knowledgable.

    Base pay during 2-year contract:
    1st year $45k
    2nd year $52k

    FDM Group is good if you require a class-setting to learn, and don't mind being severely underpaid. Otherwise, you're better off dedicating 2-3 months contract-free to use online resources and find a job that pays at LEAST $60-70k/yr. FDM Group has decent connections (BoA, Fannie Mae, etc.), but it's not worth the 2-year contract.

    1. Initial phone screening by a recruiter (~10 min)
    What's your background?
    Why did you apply to this role?

    If a stakeholder wants to change a deadline to earlier, how would you respond?
    How do you work in a team?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group (Reston, VA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    They called me and set up an in-person interview at their office in Virginia. Didn't compensate for anything and could've been done over or through the phone. Wasted my time and money for them and that honestly made me do my interview poorly.

    Interview

    There was a phone screening with a recruiter, followed by video call (really a recording of your answers), a technical test (which was pretty easy if you know basic CS concepts), and then an onsite where you are herded with other candidates and take turns to interview 3 or 4 employees.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group (New York, NY) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I applied on their website and the next day I got a call from a recruiter who emailed two links one for a video mock interview. They have a video of a person asking an interview question and you have to record your response. the audio on the video was a little hard for me to hear and so a called the recruiter who was very responsive. they give you a test and give you about an hour to complete it. it consists of mostly mock pseudocode couple word and logic problems. If you pass the recruiter will give you a call and try to get you for their assessment/interview day. They will have a powerpoint presentation about their company. they will call you into a room individually and give you two interviews, one behavioral and one technical. Behavior is standard interview questions and technical I suggest you just study some questions people have listed on this site, that's how I studied for it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at FDM Group in January 2019.

    Interview

    Recieved a call regarding an application for an FDM posting I made earlier in the week, for a recently posted position. Was told that the location in the posting was not hiring, but other locations several thousand miles away. I was also told that the position was to attend a 3 month training session, at the end of which I would either pay FDM 36k$ or work for them for two years. When I told the Interviewer that this would not work for me, and started hinting that I was no longer interested, they got quite rude.

    No technical questions were asked, it seemed like the priority was to get warm bodies in the training session.

    They got back to me within a day of submitting the application about the phone interview. The recruiter I was in contact with then took a week and a half to schedule the interview, an hour before it emailed to reschedule, and then they disappeared completely.
