    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Commonwealth Bank of Australia (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I felt it was not difficult. General questions, nothing particular. I wasted good time in solving their exercise and in the end there was even no feedback.
