    Interview

    Just the phone interview. He did not ask a lot of network, just asked me the related concepts about Java. I did not know why he asked questions about that. As a network company, he asked so many java questions.

    Started off with the an overview of the area of work that is to be done for the position. Goes onto an assortment of personality questions followed by a test run for bug finding. Switches off midway to another interviewer that refines the initial description of the area of work. Interview turns into a casual chat.
