    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fidessa in January 2017.

    Interview

    Worst process ever, don't waste your time on this company. Please read below :

    Number of rounds : 5
    1) Online coding [ Hackerrank ] - V Easy
    2) Online coding [ Hackerrank ] - Easy
    3) Oneway video interview - Average [ Questions are already on glassdoor ]
    4) Codepair with a developer - Average
                            I was given 2 questions to code using hacker rank code pair, both were of average difficulty. Interviewer was nice and helpful.
    5) Skype Interview - Average
                           Had a skype interview with two managers, it was completely based on resume. I was asked to explain two projects in depth and had small discussions about other projects.

    They emphasized C / C++ in every single round, but since I am a Java developer I used Java in every round including my code pair [ In the one way video interview also I told them that my most preferred language is Java ]. In my Skype interview they asked about my C++ experience and I told them that I do not have experience with C++[ May be the reason for rejection although they acted as if it is okay during the interview ]

    Worst part is they take 5 rounds for internship and then they check if the candidate is suitable for the team, this was the biggest waste of time for me.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fidessa in February 2016.

    Interview

    Two rounds of coding challenges followed by a personal interview (technical). Both coding challenges are one hour each and are fairly simple and straightforward. Programming language to be used is C++. Topics for questions include arrays, strings, object oriented concepts (inheritance, classes etc). It is however important to finish the tests within 50 minutes at least to proceed to the next round of interviews.

    Interview

    Process was pretty simple. I applied through my school's career services job portal. After a short time someone reached out about availibility for a phone interview. Asked some standard questions about what I was looking for and if I was willing to relocate. After that some technical questions that weren't too hard. When the phone interview was over I was told to wait for an online programming test. Test was pretty simple nothing that you shouldn't have been prepared for at school. Upon passing that online technical test was brought in for an in person interview. Questions were all about prior experience or looking over the online programming evaluation. Offer extended a couple days later.
