    Interview

    Got contacted through LinkedIn, standard and very comfortable interview. Interviewer "laid all the cards out on the table" and was honest.But they really tried to convince me to work there. They made me fill out a short survey after the interview was completed. Got offered a second interview out of three but turned it down since it wasn't for me.
