    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Société Générale (Paris (France)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I didn't have a HR interview since I was recommanded by a former team member of the project.

    Direct interview with the managers. We talked about my past experience for about 20mins.

    Then they describe the position and asked if I had any questions about the missions.

    I had a few (since the former employee already presented me the project) and the interviewer knew that I was prepared for the interview.
