    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Mars.

    Interview Details

    Sent in CV, and was asked to complete a couple of tests in return after two weeks. HR then called to ask for an interview (another two weeks after) and to tell me to prepare a 10-minute presentation on my skills. The interview was held by two persons in a small room, rather informal and pleasant, lasting an hour in total.
