3 stages, quick, and simple but the interviewers were really rude to me sometimes they did not even pay attention to me as they were looking at their phones. The questions were not that hard but I did not revise them properly. Be prepared!

Commercial Customer Service Representative

What’s the best way to have a lack of compensation and incentive conversation in your department? I went above and beyond for years doing extra work, organizations etc and nothing has been reflected in pay. I thought my 5 year was going to finally show something but it did not. I’ve inquired about pay but it’s gotten nowhere.

Failed the online test but never received any feedback. The first few questions were easy but the last two were significantly harder. It is not clear how much one needs to score in order to pass.

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DRW (Montreal, QC) in Dec 2022

Interview

initial 30 min call with team lead (brush up on technical questions: eg: difference between a list and a tuple ), followed by OA (LC style questions) and then on site final round (2 interviews about 45 mins each, one technical and one behavioural ). Behavioral also included technical questions eg, what is an API etc. Technical again was a LC style question, there was only whiteboarding no code. Everyone was really nice and friendly, super cool perks, the work sounds interesting. Did not hear back after final round (been over a month), so I guess it is a rejection.
