    I applied online and I received a few days later an invite for a selection day. The week before the selection day they sent me two tests (logical and numerical, 30 minutes each) that I had to complete before the interview.

    During the morning of the interview day I had a 60-minute test that was about financial planning. Then, I had a writing exercise in English and Dutch followed by a a 60-minute test in group.

    After lunch, I got selected for the afternoon interview round. The first interview was with a manager+HR that asked questions about myself, why this job, why this company and questions about some elements of my CV. I wasn't selected for the end of the selection process.

    2. Test de langue: Anglais et néerlandais pour les francophones
    3. Discussion de groupe: organisation des jeux olympiques à 8 participants, et nous sommes observés par un manager et une RH

    A midi, on nous appelle un par un pour nous donner le feedback.

    Si on continue on a:
    1. Un entretien avec le manager, discussion assez informelle
    2. Un entretien avec le RH, discussion type entretien d'embauche, on discute du CV, on teste les langues
    3. Un entretien avec le partner, qui est en général juste pour valider le choix
