Interview Process

Initial Phone Screening

Usually there is an initial phone screen with someone from HR or a recruiter. These questions are typically just behavioral. Sometimes applicants skip this step and go straight to the first round of interviews.

Interviews

The first round of interviews consists of two back-to-back interviews, each with about 15 minutes of personal questions and about 25 minutes of case study questions. In this round you can expect a lot of behavioral and situational questions. Sometimes the behavioral interviews and the case studies are split into two separate rounds of interviews.
