    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Egon Zehnder.

    Interview

    Everyone was nice, but the interview process was unorganized. I wasn't informed about the timeline, usually, first-send round interviews take up to 45 minutes. I ended up spending two hours answering the same questions to 3 different people. I then was invited for another interview with the same questions and spend there another 1,5 hours. My time wasn't appreciated at all.
