    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview was relaxed and good. Plenty of opportunities to ask questions and chat with the recruiter. They were clear in what they were looking for and what kind of issues you would face. I felt that they were being super clear about everything and supportive at the same time.
