    Sometimes stressful, when all problems come at once, but at the end of the day problems are associated with development.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Black & McDonald (Toronto, ON) in January-2016.

    Interview

    It was really easy and relaxed, they me asked basic questions about my resume. There were some behavioral questions, nothing too difficult. All around, a pretty normal and laid back interview. I wish all interviews could be like this one
