    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sierra Systems.

    Interview

    I was a referral from two current employees who I had worked closely with on a project, so it was very informal. The interviewers were more interested in whether I would be a good fit and if the projects I was being considered for were of interest to me than anything else.
