    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Applied through college. Got interviewed by two managers within two weeks of application. When I first entered they asked me which of the two available places that I wanted. They mainly just went over my CV and looked at my technical history and skipped over my extra curricular activities which made me think that some of their employees may not be very sociable since they didnt seem to care about that aspect. I also got a very quick tour of the building which was quite nice.
