    Interview

    Applied online, received a call for an initial interview with HR a month later. Passed initial so got moved to in person panel with 3 managers from 3 different departments. More personality based questions then ended with a role play scenario where you have to pretend to sell their products to them. Was told that they will contact me within a week, couple days passed and got a call for final interview with the lead manager from the department I was applying for; fairly easy and felt comfortable. Everyone was nice and it's more of a "get to know you type of interview" was told that there were a couple more interviews after mines so I had to wait a couple days but to my surprise got called the next day for a verbal offer. After verbal offer was made on the phone they sent a written offer to my email. Very good process and very punctual.
