    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at JDA Software (Milwaukee, WI) in January 2017.


    The interview was very casual. I was asked the usual interview questions and then had a 20 or so minute whiteboard challenge. Then we discussed any questions I had about the company and role.
