    After the short phone interview, I got on-site interview opportunity. I met four engineers. It took 50 min each.

The director payed for the lunch and we had a joyful time. But the result was not good...

    Interview Questions

    • One of interviews did not ask many question but only couple of questions that were very simple. The thing was that he would not want to talk with me for a long time. It seams like he felt annoying of this interview.   Answer Question
