Very Easy Interview
Project Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Avaya in July 2009.
Interview Details – Initial interview was via phone - standard reiteration of the submitted resume.
Second interview was with the manager and dealt with my previous experience and what I had accomplished
Third interview was with the Senior Manager - more of a warm/fuzzy, get-to-know-you interview.
Fourth interview was with the Director - again one of those get-to-know-you interviews.
The latter 2 appeared to be justification interviews, The decision had already been made and upper management just wanted to check.
Interview Question – There were no difficult questions Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They knew my previous salary and topped it with a moving bonus.
Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Avaya in March 2011.
Interview Details – I gave my resume to the recruiter at my university's career fair and chatted for a bit. He scheduled an interview for the following morning. The interview went well. He told me about the positions available at Avaya and asked what my interests were in a position. A few days later, I received a call that they would like to fly me down for an on-site interview as soon as possible. I accepted and scheduled for the following Monday.
The on-site interview consisted of a full day of 6-8 interviews with various engineers and managers and included a break for lunch. Everyone was very nice and knowledgeable. By the end of the day, my recruiter came back to tell me that they would be sending me an offer by the end of the week. They wanted to know in which department I would like to work. I felt very valued and desired.
Within a week, I received their offer (and it was very nice). I accepted and have no regrets!

Systems Engineer III Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Avaya in October 2009.
Interview Details – Company was very quick to respond throughout the process, after submitting resume a few email exchanges were made, phone interview was set up then an on-site interview took place. The on-site interview lasted 6 hours and was interviewed by 8 different people throughout that time. The people seemed 'normal' for the most part but there were areas with the nerdy and quiet stereotypes.
Interview Question – One interviewer described a situation using only Avaya hardware and software and said there was a problem on the user end. What specific steps would I take to troubleshoot that scenario and how would I relate the results of that process to my boss in laymans terms. Answer Question
