    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ActiveState (Vancouver, BC) in January-2014.

    Interview

    Very pleasant interview experience. Talked with decision-makers in my department on the phone and in-person at their office in Vancouver. All the people were warm and welcoming, the overall process was stress-free, and all my questions were answered.
