    Interview Details

    The interview was with a panel of the the team Manager, team lead and one HR person. The overall experience is very good and they didn't try to intimidate you rather getting the best out of you.

    They start with the normal procedure of explaining what you are expecting to do for the job, and then get you to introduce yourself.

    Most questions are soft skill questions, no many technical questions.
