    Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Avanade.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by the HR to check on my interest for the position as already more than 2 months had passed since I had applied. After agreeing to that, I went thru 2 rounds of technical interviews w/ 2 different group managers who grilled me quite a bit. I can say that I did extremely well on the first round, and somewhat okay on the second. Their need was immediate hence I was contacted by the HR the next day to come in person to their office for the last and final stretch w/ the SVP. This session was not as demanding as I expected, and the SVP laid out the career path for this position within the company as that was one of my questions to him.

    Negotiation

    There was a difficult situation on vacation and I did not get what I was asking for because there was another HR person in between who showed no interest and declined to even discuss. I still accepted the offer since I liked the company and the role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Avanade in February 2014.

    Interview

    There were 3 interviews, 2 by phone and 1 in person First point of contact will be a recruiter who will ask the standard interview questions. (Why do you want to work here? Leadership roles? How to resolve conflicts with team members?) Secondly, individuals get to speak to an existing employee, based on whose feedback, the final interview is arranged. This is really an interview you lead and ask questions for so come prepared. Finally, the final interview is a day-long group session with every individual getting to interview with a senior official at the company. Throughout the day you can get a chance to network with current employees, there is a writing assignment (what are your core values), and then a relaxed group activity which was something like if you were stranded on the moon, what items would you choose as important to survive. Your group then presents in front of everyone.. The interview wasn't bad but I felt they were very unprofessional on following up with me in terms of letting me know I wasn't the candidate they wanted. The "role" was changed from the job posting so they were looking for someone else. Had I not followed up with them, I'm sure I still would be waiting for a rejection so that was the worst part of the whole experience for me. Seems like a great company too, what a disappointment.
