    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    3 parts: Personal, technical, behavior.
    Personal questions were normal.
    Technical part was very difficult, I was supposed to draw schematics, for turbomachinery, hydraulic systems, refrigeration circuits.... too technical. I also had to take 3 IQ tests before landing the face to face interview.
    Behavioral questions were also a bit tough.
