    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MDA in April 2019.

    Interview

    Chaotic over webcam without a way to type/share screen. Interviewers always trying to oversimplify and look down upon my projects (calling GAN networks "find and present from sample"). "Technical questions" are mostly brain twisters and has nothing to do with the job posting.
