Interview Details – Initial phone interview. After the phone interview and screening, I was called for an interview with both the HR manager and the Audit Manager,
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the Audit manager came 1 hour late, because she was stuck in traffic. So, finally after some time, I ended up talking to the HR manager for 1 hour. She asked me a lot of questions ( psychological review questions to better understand personality?) and I had to answer a lot of follow up questions and open ended questions.
Finally, I spent the next 1 hour with the Audit Manager. She asked me a lot of technical questions. I spent 1 hour answering all the technical questions.
Finally, she ended the interview, asking me how one can ensure management can act based on the audit findings.
Total hours spent at the interview location - 3 hours.
