    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    My resume was sourced through an agency (Judge Group) representing the client. The position was placed on hold for so long that I completely forgot about it when the agency rep called me again asking that I interview on a Saturday morning. Met with the VP, Talent Acquisition & Recruitment and was informed that there was a Finance/Accounting role I would be considered for. That was 9/24. Afterwards....................radio silence - no feedback.................no response from the agency or anyone else. Past employees and interviewees have informed me that this is the norm for this company. If this is how candidates are treated, do I really want to recruit for this company?????

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Was contacted via email for an interview at the Atlanta corporate office location. A 3 round interview was conducted. The first 2 rounds were conversational with entry level employees and a senior level employee. The third round was a traditional "run me through your resume, what are your strengths and weaknesses, where do you see yourself in 5 years" interview along with conversation with upper management. Everyone was very nice but I never heard back anything about the next steps in the interview process or an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call from the recruiter about the software development internship for the summer. To my dismay, since this was my first interview ever, I was expecting an actual interview, but I did pair programming instead. It was a fairly good experience, except the fact that 3 guys were watching me code as I blanked out throughout the whole thing, which kept me nervous. But, an experience is still an experience!

    Software Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was divided in three parts. The first was a fizzbuzz coding challenge, then behavioral questions, then questions regarding your resume. If you did not pass the first part, you were asked to leave as I saw for others. I honestly did not agree with the interview as I feel that the fizzbuzz test was more to trick you than anything else considering three people sit and watch you in silence. I ended up rejecting the offer as it was extremely low balled, and they've recently relocated to a much smaller office here in Atlanta so that must say something as well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Thorough interview process , be prepared to know your stuff and have in detail your past sales experience and your sales methods. Process took more than a week to interview but a month and half from application date.Applied early January was not contacted till early February by recruiter. Recruiter interview via phone and then with Sales Director then with VP of sales. Skill assessment with numerical reasoning completed before interview process started.Ride along with current consultant to assess skills done after 3rd phone interview and then few days soft offer was presented via phone by recruiter. If you have extensive sales experience be prepared to go into detail about your experience because First Data's hiring process is no joke. They spend a lot of time finding the right candidate for the job so no detail is spared and questions are extensive so your answer should be the same showcasing your knowledge and skill.
