    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Public Lab (United States) in Mar 2021


    They asked for four rounds of interviews, many of which repeated the same questions over and over again. I completed multiple assignments, led a paper discussion, listened to random podcasts and all sorts of other busy work. Eventually, they ghosted me.
