Interview

I applied online and a recruiter contacted me to discuss my interest in the role and to talk about salary expectations. They also explained the process: 1. take an online assessment called a "virtual job tryout" which comprises a personality test, a mini case, drafting an email, and how you would respond to behavioral situations; 2: Pending you pass the "assessment" with a satisfactory score, you would then interview with the hiring manager and several others on the team; 3: if that went well, you would then have a "super day" where you would have 4-6 45 minute interviews with different members of the group. Pending the results of the "super day" an offer would follow.

Interview Questions

I found the online assessment annoying and a waste of time. I also found it a strange way to gate opportunities.
