    Lead Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stamford, CT

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Play-Well TEKnologies (Stamford, CT) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Casual meeting over coffee. I was told to dress casual ahead of time. The interviewer had very well thought out questions. He had a few standard interview questions, but some really cool thought-provoking questions as well. He really put me at ease and encouraged me to be myself. After meeting him, he made me really want to work for him and for the company.
