    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at WSI (Boston, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Had 3 interviews:
    1. Phone HR interview
    2. In person interview about my past experience
    3. In person technical interview on Java, Javascript etc

    Overall it was a great experience because the interviewers were friendly. When i asked questions about the company, they gave in-depth answers about the business. Loved not just their products but also their work culture.
