    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Saama Technologies.

    Interview

    Worst Interview process had 3 skype interview, people from India schedule your times,
    They have Developer job opening , and in the interview, they ask you Architect role question, when I ask at the end of the interview what role are you looking for? They said Lead developer,
    *Please stop wasting people's time
    *And do your homework before you take interviews
    *Talk internally what you looking for and what people apply for before interview
    *And be on time
