Research Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kinnser Software in March 2013.
Interview Details – Was initially contacted by their recruiter and did a brief phone interview. Next came for a grueling 3 hour interview with 4 rounds of people. Started with the "high level" senior management and worked down to the position supervisor. The interview was really a dialogue, they asked a question, I asked a question. I was able to tell that the company was what it claimed to be, a dynamic, upbeat, supportive work environment where everyone tried their hardest. Very honest answers to my questions, no surprises.
