Difficult Interview

Computer Support Specialist Interview

Computer Support Specialist
Virginia Beach, VA

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at AvalonBay in March 2011.

Interview Details – Submitted application online with resume and cover letter. HR contacted me via e-mail to set up a brief phone interview, followed by a more position specific interview with HR. A member of the IS team then contacted me for a very detailed interview with technical questions. Last there was a face to face interview with a senior manager and department VP. The process was extensive, detailed, and one of the most professional hiring experiences I have had.
