    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Popular (San Juan, PR) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I have four interviews and had to took an exam. The time they took to make a decision was too long, and in some ocassion they dont ask professional questions. In the first interview they offer me an amount and in my last and final offer they offer a sustancial lower amount compared by the first offer.
