    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at IFC.


    Lengthy process. Had to go through a) a written exam, b) 10 rounds of interviews, spread over 15-20 days and c) a background check which took two months. But most of the time, interviewers asked just the same standard questions in every interview. However, there were no stress questions. A few of the interviews were telephonic (as the interviewers can be calling from other countries) so it can be a little uncomfortable if one is not used to it, specially with understanding the accents.
