    I applied online – interviewed at FirstRain.


    Applied through LinkedIn. In about two weeks got an email from a recruiter offering to schedule a phone call. The phone call was on time, however, due to a very heavy accent of the recruiter, it was difficult to understand her questions. The questions were very generic. She promised to get in touch with me in a week, but in spite of my efforts to follow up no one got back to me.
