    Interview

    Applied online and got a phone interview. Then a skype interview then another phone interview. Process took about 2 weeks. HR isn't always on top of things. For example, we had a skype interview but there was no way we could skype as no usernames or anything of that nature were exchanged.

    Pretty standard interview, talk about CV, why FD etc. Research on FD and look at news.
