    Interview

    Screening on-campus interview that was fairly basic. No technicals in the screening interview - walk me through your resume, why banking type questions only. Superday was 5 interviews and 30 mins to answer a writing prompt. One guy tried to throw me off by being on his phone and acting uninterested. Other four were fairly straightforward get-to-know you questions.
