And then we went to group solving in which case I got partnered w/ someone who barely spoke english.

Interview Details – Pretty typical interview process. Started with phone screen then face to face with hiring manager, and then asked to come back for face to face with Director and HR Manager. One question that was asked by all was "who has been you best/worst manager and why?". Process took a long time but, thats just typical of large companies...can't make decisions too quickly, even if they like you and fill your a good fit, still a lot of red tape.
Everyone I talked to was in good spirits, didn't seem over worked, but genuinely enjoyed their work...
