I am applying for a programmer internship and the company scheduled a 30 minute phone interview between me and the Lead Recruiter from the HR. When I wanted to start to prepare, I realised that I am not sure whether I should expect only the HR-oriented questions (e.g. Why should we hire you?), or whether I should expect technical, programming questions as well. I already passed an online coding test that was a prerequisite even to the application submission.
Do phone interviews with HR usually contain technical questions? Is it appropriate to directly ask the Coordinator that has scheduled the phone interview about how the interview is going to be oriented?
