    Interviewed with 3 individuals, two from immediate working group, one from senior management; follow-up interview panel consisting of three senior staff (due to salary). Process was professional, polite, pleasant. Questions were straightforward, to the point and relevant to the job. No trick questions or attempts to throw me off base. No personality, technical skill or other tests. In all, one of the better experiences I've had in interviewing.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation per se; company couldn't afford salary so the difference was split into a signing bonus for the first year with catch-up to my asking price after that. (Standard procedure).
