    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at FDM Group (Reston, VA (US)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Hour long presentation on FDM, followed by short basic math test, logic test, and three one on one interviews. The math test was very basic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division). The logic test was mostly just pseudocode, and puzzles. It also had some random questions like ranking GB to KB. The tests are timed, but I don't think anyone came close to running out of time.

    Interview Questions

    • They provided pseudocode and asked what the program would do.   Answer Question

    Interview

    There was a phone screening with a recruiter, followed by video call (really a recording of your answers), a technical test (which was pretty easy if you know basic CS concepts), and then an onsite where you are herded with other candidates and take turns to interview 3 or 4 employees.

    I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group (Reston, VA (US)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    They called me and set up an in-person interview at their office in Virginia. Didn't compensate for anything and could've been done over or through the phone. Wasted my time and money for them and that honestly made me do my interview poorly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group in March 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiting and management was unorganized. Technical interviewer was extremely friendly and knowledgable.

    Base pay during 2-year contract:
    1st year $45k
    2nd year $52k

    FDM Group is good if you require a class-setting to learn, and don't mind being severely underpaid. Otherwise, you're better off dedicating 2-3 months contract-free to use online resources and find a job that pays at LEAST $60-70k/yr. FDM Group has decent connections (BoA, Fannie Mae, etc.), but it's not worth the 2-year contract.

    1. Initial phone screening by a recruiter (~10 min)

    What's an example of a setback and how you overcame it?

    3. a. Account manager (10 min):
    What happens if you can't make a deadline?
    If a stakeholder wants to change a deadline to earlier, how would you respond?
    How do you work in a team?
    b. "Technical" Interview (20 min) - I had a resume with Java experience:

    Is Java pass by reference or pass by value

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group (New York, NY (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I applied on their website and the next day I got a call from a recruiter who emailed two links one for a video mock interview. They have a video of a person asking an interview question and you have to record your response. the audio on the video was a little hard for me to hear and so a called the recruiter who was very responsive. they give you a test and give you about an hour to complete it. it consists of mostly mock pseudocode couple word and logic problems. If you pass the recruiter will give you a call and try to get you for their assessment/interview day. They will have a powerpoint presentation about their company. they will call you into a room individually and give you two interviews, one behavioral and one technical. Behavior is standard interview questions and technical I suggest you just study some questions people have listed on this site, that's how I studied for it.

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter after applying for the position. Had a 15-20 minute phone interview about my interest and was asked basic questions.

    Passed that section, so then I was asked to do a video interview and an aptitude test. The video interview was 6 pre-recorded questions. The aptitude test was a timed test, 50 minutes max with logic questions.

    I made it to the onsite interview, but that hasn't taken place yet.

    Interview

    Starts with a phone interview, then test/screen interview and finally the at location interview. So a lot of little things but none of them are difficult, they just want to know if you have a basic understanding on your topic and are teachable.
