SSME Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Amdocs in January 2011.

Architect Expert Interview (Negative Experience)
I applied through other source and interviewed at Amdocs.
Interview Details – There was no interview / hiring process. We were outsourced from AT&T. The options were to come to Amdocs, or Not. If you choose Not, then you give up the prospect of meeting a date where you would become retirement eligible from AT&T. (would not be able to collect retirement benefits- unless Amdocs laid us off) So we really did not have a choice. Amdocs did lay off more than 1/2 the people in our group one year later.
Interview Question – was offered the same position that we were in before being outsourced. There was no one on one face to face contact View Answers (3)
Negotiation Details – they paid exactly what we were making. But the bonuses have been much smaller than what AT&T paid.

Director Data Warehousing Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Amdocs in January 2012.
Interview Details – Typical HR screen telephone interview followed by out of country manager calling and reviewing qualifications. Next was a one-on-one interview with the "local" manager and a presentation to a panel of involved parties. Lastly a phone interview with the Sales VP.
Data Warehousing (DW) is a new focus for AMDOCS and they were looking a new sales reps to go back into existing telco clients and sell their services. Challenge is AMDOCS doesn't really understand what the product or service they want to sell is, and thus the value proposition is something you have to extrapolate for each client. My opinion is they AMDOCS has solid knowledge of the back office and Ops side of the telco business, but doesn't know how to frame their DW solution by anything but EIS and reporting.
Like lots of consulting organization this office seemed to be culturally diverse with a heavy percentage of Asians and middle easterners (cheap green card labor?) who seemed to have limited interactions with their cube mates
Interview Question – With a long history in the DW market there weren't any difficult or unexpected questions. View Answer
