    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at AOL (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    Very long and tedious interviewing process. The worse part is how they make you come so close to landing the job but margins are so tight in the end that chances are slimmer and slimmer. Longest interviewing process ever of 4 hours and did not get any offer. Very disappointing and heart-breaking in the end. In the end, it seemed like a waste of time.

    Interview Questions

    • Got asked alot of behavioral questions. One of them was how would I react if one of my coworkers was being difficult to deal with due to pressure?   Answer Question
