I had one interview with an alumno. I had 2 probability questions ( first one about pdf and cdf, second one expected # trials to get 2 consecutive heads with a coin) and then he went through my curriculum and asked questions related to it. Overall I believe I could have done better, I did some silly gaffes because I was not expecting such cv-related questions for me because I'm from economics undergrad and I was not expecting macroeconomics stuff. I had no follow up as well.
