    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Waterloo (Waterloo, ON) in November-2017.

    Interview

    2 to 1, lasted for around 30 minutes, there are no tough questions. They went through the responsibilites to make sure you meet their requirements. And also some behavioural questions. The interviewers are kind.
