    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Principal Financial Group.

    Interview

    First round interview - Just asked about my resume, skills, why I want to work at Principal.

    Second round interview - Went through my resume again but in more depth. Pretty much all behavioral questions.

    The interview was pretty laid-back, not very stressful. I was expecting at least some technical questions, but I was pretty young and clearly didn't have the experience, and I think they realized that.
