    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Ariba in May 2017.


    I had applied online and got an email from a recruiter to set up an interview with the Hiring manager. The interview was a very short interview with just 10 mins as the interviewer didn't seem to be interested in knowing about more about the candidate. Jumped directly into technical questions. I didn't feel like he was interested in hiring as he didn't seem to be enthusiastic.
