    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Société Générale.

    Interview

    I applied online via SocGen website and got a phone call after 3 weeks where we scheduled phone interview 1 week later. The interview was with the team leader and apart from my profile the questions were rather technical. I was supposed to get feedback in couple of days, this was postponed twice though (I think they were waiting was someone better despite claiming it is an urgent hire). After the decision, they did not give any feedback. The interview was carried in both English and French (although the position did not require any French and it is not my native language either).
