    Difficult Interview


    When applying, it's not for a specific position. You are sorted into an ideal category. Very straightforward with three stages. Two are tests, one about your character and a second about code learning ability. The last stage is an interview with your potential manager covering several programming questions dealing with comprehension.

    Interview Questions

    • In the interview, one question was how I would approach a potential programming assessment request by my manager. The request itself was very open-ended and undetailed.   1 Answer
