    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Braintree (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview began with a phone interview and then was followed by a take home email test where you were asked to answer a theoretical customer email. Then there was a 2.5 hour in house interview. I was given an office tour, had to sign a non disclosure agreement and then took a Wonderlic test. This was followed by an interview with 2 staff members and then a room change and a 2nd interview with 2 additional staff members. During the second interview I was also asked to work through two different logic problems.
