    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at First Derivatives (Newry, Northern Ireland (UK)).

    Interview

    I had an initial 20 minute phone call with HR to review my CV. Then when called for a face-to-face there were two 15 minute meetings discussing my CV, my goals, and my knowledge of the company. Then we had to prepare a short presentation, and finally ended with a 45-min logic test.
