    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were broad, vague, and asinine. I could barely hear what the interviewer was saying, so bad i requested several times for the questions to be repeated. If your going to conduct conference calls make sure your AV is up to speed. In addition make sure you customize your interview questions to make sense to you and the other party.   1 Answer

    Senior Java Developer - REMOTE Denver, CO Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (Denver, CO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    To begin, Please review other interviews that speak to being woefully unprepared by the recruiter.
    This interview was NO different.
    Also note comments about utilizing outdated technology and paying less than market rates.

    There were actions taken during the interview that lead me to lose confidence in the overall process, and (frankly!) in the interviewers themselves. Questions presented were NOT properly vetted beforehand, and contained inaccuracies.

    I already went through a first round phone tech. screen, but this was unknown (and unappreciated!) by the second round interview team.

    As the interview progressed, It became clear that the expectations set with me prior to the interview were NOT going to be met (expected duration, content, format, and my up-front insistence for interview balance and clarity on why I was chosen for this 2nd interview), and I became more reluctant to continue with the process.

    An impasse was reached when I began to inquire as to the total number of unplanned “white board” questions that were expected, especially given my expectations for the allotted time remaining, and the technical limitations and the heroic means of trying to complete these via video conference.
    I was confronted with a tone of (paraphrasing) “..these are representative of the daily work expected for this position..”
    Privately I thought that opinion absurd, given this was a remote development position where day-to-day all possible resources could be brought to bear, but from a larger perspective I detected an expectation of “you are here now to do whatever we ask of you”.

    That was the breaking point for me, as I decided that my further participation in this process was no longer required, making my final decision easy abort this interview and to decline any further engagement for this position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City (Norman, OK) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer started talking about casual things of life and then he started to explain the job duties. It wasn't a really hard interview, just a behavioral one. It's a competitive job so potential candidates should show a lot of confidence and have prepared examples. Previous relevant experience might be a big plus too.
