    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Progress Software in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a 3 hours interview. I went to the progress software in Morrisville. I thought interviewers will ask me to code. But actually, other than the questions about my resume and a few technical questions, they asked me many basic questions, such as describe yourself, what is your weakness. The people there were nice.
