    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Teradata.


    Got a email from the recruiter after applying on Glassdoor within 48hrs. It was a couple days before I got a call from the recruiter as a type of prescreen interview. Another day later I was scheduled for an interview with the hiring manager. A week later, got a call from the hiring manager and it was the smoothest interview I have ever done.
