    We will give you a lot of information and expect you to keep up.

    If you failed your school exams, you likely will also fail here
  • Your leadership style is submissive or democratic – in order to move quickly as a company, we need someone that is not afraid of making their own decisions and over-ruling people in order to deliver results
