    Interview

    Applied online, and received an invitation to interview with the HR about a week and a half later. I was later invited to have an interview with the department I chose. Both the HR and the department analyst were super nice. The department interview as supposed to be technical, but it focused a lot more on what you know about Dimensional rather than the actual technical work.
