    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FDM Group (New York, NY (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    They asked for a phone interview shortly after i applied online. The phone section was non technical standard interview questions.

    I was then asked to take a recorded video interview. I was given 60 seconds between questions and allowed up to 3 days to take this section. 2 days later i was asked to come into their assessment center located in wall street.

    I learned that their training policy had attached to it a value of 20,000. This money is paid either through the completion of your training and taken as part of your contract or directly out of your pockets.

    This is where i decided i would not be proceeding with FDM.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group (New York, NY (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The assessment day was from 9 to 3ish, we were told to be there by 8:45am. We took 3 tests, Math Logic test, Math test, and Venn Diagram test. After that we had lunch, and then a brief presentation from hr about the contract and salary. After we waited like around 30 minutes for the interviewers to come down. There were 3 interviewers. The interviews were fairly easy. 3 5 minute interviews. They probably will get to only ask 2-3 questions depending on how long you answer. The recruiter outside times the interview so when the 5 minutes are up she will knock on the door. Concluding , I felt that the interviews were really easy. Rather the Venn Diagram test was the hardest.

    Java Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FDM Group (New York, NY (US)) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I recently went in for their assessment day in NYC. I will be starting training in a week.

    The assessment day consisted of an hour long written test and two one-on-one interviews. The test is composed of some technical questions, some project management questions, coding examples and questions on them. You don't need more than a first semester programming course to answer the questions about the example code. If you're a project management applicant, I believe they mark you more leniently because they don't expect you to have a background in programming.

    My first interview was a technical one where I was asked about the skills I wrote on my resume (if you wrote something there, you better know it - at least somewhat) and I was asked to show some code I had written.

    My second interview was more to see how interested I was in FDM in general, what fields I'd be more interested in, how my previous experiences (work + college) affect my ideas about how my career should look in the future, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't ready for questions about skills which were mentioned on my resume but which I had only minimal exposure to.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None.
