    It was an easy interview, with questions asked about the position and experience you have in the field and a one-month hiring process. The recruiter contacts you first and interviews you, then the Supervisor. If you pass the interview, they'll ask you to go for medical.

    Previous experience and how it benefits the position you're applying for.
