  2. Technical interview: ...

Questions For Your Screener

  1. What is the hiring process? Be suspicious if they are asking for too much in one of the steps.
  2. Tell me about the tech team. Find more about the company’s hierarchies and the people who compose them.

Asking Questions On The Technical Interview
