    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Blue Coat Systems (Canada)

    Interview

    The interview was fairly short, and the interviewers were very friendly. Most of the time was spent telling me about the role and the team. We also discussed past intern projects and company culture. There were only a couple of technical questions. They were about locks and object oriented programming fundamentals.
