    Interview

    The interviewer was not very approachable, friendly, and didn't respond to my answers so it was difficult to tell if I was going on the right path. When I asked clarifying questions, he would just repeat the same question again. The questions were very broad. I left the interview feeling terrible and severely disappointed in myself.

    Interview

    It was a video interview. The interviewer did not turn on his camera but asked me to open mine.

    The worst part was that the interviewer did not even have a copy of my resume even though I have attached it in my application.

    Interview

    It was great. I had 2 in-person interviews, both had whiteboarding (writing code) but one of them was less technical than the other. I highly suggest using leetcode as practice. I practiced easy and medium questions.

    Interview

    There was one phone interview before the three final round interviews in person. Sat down with members of the team as well as the hiring manager. It was a super day, and I got to meet a lot of other people interviewing for the same position. Questions were structured, but it was still a very relaxed competition.
