    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Equilar in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process goes pretty much as stated from other candidates. What I found awful is how much time they ask you to put into this process. I think recruiters need to be more selective between round 2 and 3 because the presentation they ask you to put together is a ridiculous amount of preparation for an entry level job.
