    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at First Derivatives (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    - Telephone interview from Ireland
    - Flowchart logic test + F2F Interview

    Interviewer did not help set and guide the interview, and was not nice throughout. The purpose of the interviewer is to best figure out whether the interviewee is a good fit for the role. The way the interview was conducted was sure to deter many good candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • - Talk about yourself/resume.
      - Know what the company does.   Answer Question
