    Associate Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Carat in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Pretty relaxed, easygoing, and straightforward interview process. Consisted of two different interviews. I met with my two soon-to-be superiors the first day, and two soon-to-be coworkers at the next interview. The first interview was skills/technically heavy, but they also made sure to delve into other sides of my personality to see how I would fit in culturally. The second interview was more relaxed and certainly felt like more of a personality/culture evaluation than a technical assessment.
