    Average Interview


    interview process was typical, but it sounds like the company is going through a lot of changes right now. The other I interviewed with could not even describe what a work day looked like. They also kept saying how they value work life balance, but the people I interviewed with were also telling me they were working over the weekend.

    describe your past experience and how it relates to this job.
