Interview

It was very casual yet structured. I like my interview here better than else where where people treat interviewee like prisoners. It depends on the interviewer, but a lot of interviewers in other tech companies just can't communicate with people

    The interview was so long. It took 3 hours including 3 1h interview sessions. I have interviewed with two senior ones and also the team manager. The senior engineers focused mostly in technical question and the manager in behavioral question. It was a bit frustrating to talk that much long and express the evaluations in different aspects.
