    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Direct Agents (New York, NY) in Oct 2020

    Interview

    Had a 30 minute call with a recruiter from HR. Quick conversation to go over experience and to learn more about the company. Next round was with the SVP of Finance. It was about a 2 hour call to get to know more about the role and my experience. He asked several technical questions to see if I was able to back up my experience. They were fairly straight forward questions for someone who is looking for the specific kind of role. Overall, good experience.
