    I had to go through two interviews. First with my manager and a HR representative. There were lots of behavioral type of questions in the interview. It lasted about one and a half hours.

    Two things I have negotiated for once I received the offer later- a) Joining date (I wanted to join bit late as I needed few more time to comply with my notice period); and b) Increase of base salary.

    They agreed with my 1st negotiation, but there were no room for them to increase the base as I was offered the maximum of their budget for the position.
