    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HARMAN in December 2019.


    First had screening call with the hr and manager. Then was called in for an in person interview with manager and some senior members. Questions are easy if you are strong in the language you are interviewing for. HR was in touch the entire time and very communicative. Overall positive experience.
