    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CARFAX (London, ON) in January 2020.


    First interview was with the recruiter over the phone. She just went over my resume with me and confirmed my salary expectation. Took about a half hour.
    <one week later>
    Second interview was with the hiring manager in Missouri over the phone. He wanted to more about my role and responsibilities at my current position. He was very friendly and welcoming to my many questions about the position and company. Took about an hour.
    <one week later>
    Third interview was face to face with a Director at the London office (one hour) as well as a Zoom interview with a Director in Missouri (half hour). F2F interview was a bit technical but mostly conversational. The Zoom meeting was mostly conversational.
    <few days later>
    Offer given and accepted.

    Overall the interview process was very friendly and straight forward.
