      Work Liberty and good work life balance


      Not agile. Very old fashioned.

        Beautiful campus. You can work with very hardworking people.

      I have an interview for Sr data engineer in RBC. Does anyone have any idea what can be asked? Any experience anyone can share?


      University of South Florida

      Anyone know how indepth Crowe background check is? What do they verify? Do they use a third party service? What exactly are they looking for?



      I've completed an initial phone screening interview, followed by a 2-hour interview with the Department VP. Next in the process are three separate 90-minute peer interviews. Is there a possibility of another interview after the peer interviews, or should I anticipate receiving an offer?
