    - These questions were based on your school projects and current technologies.

    One interview with a current employee.

    - This was a selling interview where you asked the questions about the position to a person that was in your shoes.

    Interview

    Professional hiring process. Great set of recruiters. All interviews are non-technical for new college hires.

    First point of contact will be a recruiter, who will conduct a phone interview to verify if you are the one whose resume is in their hands.

    Secondly, individuals deemed fit will get to speak to an existing employee, based on whose feedback, the final interview is arranged.

    Finally, the final interview is a day-long group session with every individual getting to interview with a senior official at the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Avanade.

    Interview

    Applied online through their career website. A couple months later I received an email from a recruiter asking me to schedule a phone interview. The interview was mostly behavioral with a few general technical questions. For example, explain cloud computing to someone who doesn't understand the internet. There were also a few abstract questions such as what would you do you do if your cell phone power button wasn't working. They also asked what I knew about the company and what would make me a good consultant. Then the rest of the time was spent with him explaining to me the hiring process (six weeks of boot camp learning all Microsoft technologies). She also went through a list of technical and soft skills (programming, public speaking, etc) and you had to answer whether you had a basic, proficient, advanced, or expert level of competency with each.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Avanade (Houston, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I began with a phone interview to go over my resume. There were also several questions to gauge my interest in technology overall.

    Then I had a second interview with a current employee to discuss the position. The interviewer seemed unprepared and was unable to answer some of my questions about consultant work.

    Finally I had an on-site interview. There were 6 applicants total. We were given more information about the company, benefits package, and the job. Each applicant had a 1-on-1 interview with a manager which was largely relaxed. We were each asked to write a page discussing the core values of the company. We were also given a team exercise and asked to present to several of the managers.

    I was underwhelmed with the process. It felt poorly organized and some of the tasks seemed to lack direct relevance to the position.
