Interview

Behavioral based assessment, then reading comprehension questions, recorded video interview. All happened within 1 week. Last interview someone was not able to attend... which was a bad sign for me. They had decided not to hire me even before the interview. Made me uncomfortable during the whole interview thinking about it.

1 screen call, 2 interviews, was asked some technical questions, why would I want to work there, tell them about my work experiences. The process was a little nerve wracking as I was asked technical questions on the spot, just answered it as best I could.
