Interview Questions


"There are three main stages of the interview: 1. Typical questions such as 'Why do you want to work here?' and 'What sort of qualities do you have that fit our roles?'; 2. Discussions of your answers to the written tests. 3. Brainteasers such as estimation tasks or logic puzzles."
