    Easy Interview


    Did short interview with HR over the phone around 20 mins. 30 mins interview with an engineer asked some more technical questions. Then did a 3.5 hour interview, every 45 mins with a different few people. Then I did another 20 minute phone call with someone I would be working with asking more personal questions to get to know me.
