    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Avanade in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Avanade.

    Interview Details

    Applied to them before they came to the career fair at my University. Recruiter sent me an email telling me that they were interested and to stop by their booth. I did so and also went to their information session the day after. Interview process was 2 steps: a phone call and an in person. The phone call was maybe 20 minutes long and didn't include any technical questions. The interview day was at an Accenture office, it was very relaxed; there was a team activity as well as a small writing portion. I then went and talked to a manager for about half an hour; it was more like a conversation than an interview. I received my offer about 3 or 4 weeks after.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Avanade in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was one of the best experiences of candidate interviewing and hiring I've seen in all the years I've interviewed at companies. The candidate pool was kept informed of status, updates, additional requirements and decisions as if they were actually employees already. I've never experienced such a great group of people before anywhere. Truly fantastic experience and amazing HR and business professionals.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Avanade in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    My interview experience with this firm was rather bizarre. First off, they found my name on the web and recruited me. First interview was with a recruiter who extolled the firm’s virtues. Second interview was with a Director who spent an hour on the phone with me to gauge my project management, people skills and leadership style. Third interview was with a peer who discussed his role and what I would be expected to do on the job. Fourth interview was supposed to be with a hiring manager but instead, I got a head recruiter. All interviews were positive and upbeat and I was led to believe my final interview would be with the hiring manager. Weeks go by with no word from anyone after sending numerous follow up emails. Finally, I get an email from a recruiter stating that they would not be proceeding with my application (WTF????) and that I am welcome to search their careers site for other opportunities (Uh, don’t think so). For crying out loud, just say you axed the head count and move on. Jeessh!
