    Interview Details

    i went in to teaneck nj for one day and had 3 seperate interviews. one was for technical, one for social, and one with my recruiter. The technical was logic based, not actual programming languages or anything. Though i did hear that some people got asked actual technical question. The recruiter was very basic, why did you apply here, etc. the personality was basic as well.
