    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Operative Media in March 2017.

    Interview

    First round with developer was normal and went well.

    Second round with manager/ senior person was horrible, the person have no clue what he is asking , he has some answers in mind and won't accept any thing else. Most of the question are bookish and silly .

    Would not have worked with even if I got offer .

    Advice : try to interview candidate based on position you are hiring .
