Interview

Very positive experience overall. All online due to covid. First round had 3 interviews ( very typical case studies and also interviews about my experiences) Lots of help given throughout the process and feedback given after first round regardless of outcome

Interview Questions
  • Case studies similar to those on their website. Personal questions again very typical but some required thinking on my feet.
