    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Abebooks (Victoria, BC).

    Interview

    Had six interviews most questions were behavioural with only 2 easy technical questions. Interviewers were looking to understand work style and look for any potential red flag. Overall, I expected the interview to be more technical since it was for a junior position but mostly focused on behavioural and previous experience questions.
