    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at First Data.

    Interview

    It was pretty short I meet with one manager. It was a very relaxed one on one interview. I do believe after now working for this manager it was not your typical interview. He is a very laid back kind of person and that's how he conducts his interview. The interviews here tend to depend on the person your talking to and vary greatly on that.

    Associate Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coral Springs, FL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at First Data (Coral Springs, FL) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online; received a phone message (home phone and cell) about a week later inviting me to an interview the following week and this was followed by a confirmation email. The interview lasted about 40 minutes. It was conducted by the manager and team leader who were extremely courteous, friendly and more than happy to answer all of my questions. A very pleasant experience; I assume the position was offered to a candidate with qualifications that more closely matched the job description.

    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at First Data (Denver, CO) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First round telephonic, second round face to face. My second interview is about design the bidding application similar to eBay. I provided basic components that will help to build the application. But they need total solution. We don't have time it took an hour. We are just developers not designers or architects. Towards the end I had a rapid fire round of Java questions. Questions are asked in seconds and we need to respond in less than a second. I did not get time to think from one question to another, they will bring you into state of confusion. They will rush you up.
    This is for EFTPS project and it is contract to hire. They will ask you if you are a citizen or green card holder and they will do the in depth background check.

    Interview Questions

    • All basic core Java questions.Nothing from Webservices or frameworks.   Answer Question

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at First Data.

    Interview

    Hiring process was straight forward through HR. They set up two interviews for different position on the same day. First interview went ok but not a right match. Second interview went much better. They asked few questions and mostly had me answer random questions that made more sense after I worked there. I was right out of college and did recieve a job offer. They have a great training program for new hires.

More relaxed and personal interview than first meeting.
