    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New School (New York, NY) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Submitted online, a week later they set up a 30 minute phone interview with 4 people. The team was friendly and the questions were the typical interview question--but with a twist. The twist is what made them hard to answer. For example instead of asking "what are your strengths and weaknesses they ask "what would your friends say is the best thing about you and what drives them crazy about you?"
