    Interview

    Super day interview. We had 3 30 minute interviews, followed by an exam for supposedly 1 hour. It was incredibly unprofessional. We were left in a room alone, and people who clearly knew each other were cheating on the exam. The problems were clearly taken out of some resource for these types of questions, and edited not so well, since some problems were like problems that existed, except didn't make sense.
