    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at AOL.

    Interview Details

    The college recruitment team was fantastic. They were very personable and kept me up to date on everything that was going on. I was originally bought in to interview for one position which I didn't get. However, after a couple of months, I was called up and asked to if I wanted to come back in for a different position involving software analysis and user-end communication. I obliged. Was bought in for one interview, where I interviewed with a few team members and a few days later was told that I had the job. They were very fast in all communications and helpful to me.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no really technical questions, mostly personable questions, and experience questions.   Answer Question
