    it was an online test, a phone interview, and an onsite. Process is lengthy, but reasonable. Its a good idea to study as the questions were difficult. Make sure to understand what the interviewers are asking.

    Interview

    The recruiters were really nice and so were interviewers. Everyone was welcoming, encouraging, and kind. Solving the problems during the interview on site was actually quite fun. Positive experience, however it felt like a long drawn out timeline to the time of decision from originally applying.
