    Interview

    Phone screen followed by "Superday", but it was only a 30 minute interview with 2 managers. The questions were very easy fit questions and it was relaxed environment. You could tell that the managers enjoyed working there, as they raved about the firm's culture. Ultimately decided that the position wouldn't utilize my background and took a different position.

Next day, I was the second to interview. After chatting with my greeter for a while, I was asked to start my interview. No introduce yourself. It's a little suprised to me. Some questions about office and specialization preference. Then 2 behavior questions. In the end you can ask the interviewer some questions.
