    Difficult Interview

There is 13 questions and most of them are technical related instead of general behavioral question(They said general questions in the process explanation email.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of three 30-minute interviews - two behavioral and one case. The interviewers I had were polite and each session was a standard, run-of-the-mill job interview. The experience was long considering it took them over a month to get back, but enjoyable nonetheless.

    Interview

    Interview process was typical where it starts with phone interview, and technical interview.
    Nice part is at the time, I did not have to come in for interview which is nice if you are not located in the area.
