    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Grand Rapids, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GFT (Grand Rapids, MI).

    Interview

    The hiring process was very normal for web development interviews. The first interview was a phone conversation with a light discussion of history and personality. A follow up in person interview covered light technical questions. Most of the discussion was around particular technologies and a quick overview of basic features of the language used. The follow up interview was with the team I was to work with.

    Global Client Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Rapids, MI
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GFT (Grand Rapids, MI).

    Interview

    Interview was fairly basic. Just generic questions about my most difficult decision I had to make. They were primarily looking for someone to fill an off-shift role immediately so my background wasn't as important as it may have been with other places. Overall, the interview was quick and painless and I was hired later that day.

    Reasons for Declining

    Working an off-shift would have been too difficult for me.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at GFT (Grand Rapids, MI) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Met with the CIO, IT Manager, and Security Analyst who would be reporting to this position. Everyone was in jeans which I found nice. Building is contemporary and in a ritzy part of town.

    The interview was long with each person asking several questions but it didn't feel drawn out. The CIO was on his laptop during the interview.

    Application

    Client Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in City of London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GFT (City of London, England (UK)) in October 2008.

    Interview

    It was a straightforward one on one. The interviewer was very friendly, professional and clearly been successful in the city finance sector.

    It wa a tell me what you have done in career, how would fit the role, this is what the company does, what are your major acheivements and where do you see yourself in 5 years.

    Key requirements were one extra European Language, Foreign Exchange trading sector knowledge and Client Services experience.

    But for all this they only wanted to pay £18k per year. Recruiter had said it was negotiable. Once the wage was established during the interview I lost interest and body language probably showed. For the skills required it was a fairly insulting wage and it also showed me they cared little for high quality client/customer service (you get what you pay for!).

    18k in London is equivalent to a supermarket checkout wage, or less.
