I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – Deep technical question related to cloud computing - a term I'd not heard before.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Good salary commensurate to skill set. Fair approach in negotiating. No tricks. Just open, honest employer who likes the person just as much as the skill set. Amazing.

.NET Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Avanade in March 2013.

Interview Details – 4 process interview
1. Initial
2. Technical
3. Behavioral
4. Project

Company seems to be not organize on the proj., when recruitment contacted me the position has WCF, i declined and told her the i don't have any experience on it. So she gave me different position which does not have that. All interviews went well, until the to the project interview, that was suppose to be a project manager, but turned out to be a project lead, the interview suddenly became question of WCF and security on services, which confuses me became i dont have any experience at all. I mentioned that to the interviewer and told him that "is this the correct position i am applying at?" he said actually the project is more into that.

After the interview i emailed the recruiter and told her that we have spoken about the position that i have less to none experience on thos stuff. She just replied "Thank you for interviewing, i will get back to you once i connect with him "

Manager Interview

Manager
Seattle, WA

I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Avanade in February 2010.

Interview Details – Contacted by recruiter and met with HR, Finance and a Program lead. Took a few weeks to get all of the interviews scheduled and completed.

Interview Question – I felt that I really had to sell myself and that the interviewers hadn't read my resume or really understood how my past roles fit with the one I was interviewing for. I would have thought they would have done more homework or the recruiter would have passed on notes so I didn't have to keep repeating myself. If I didn't really want this role, I would have withdrawn early in the process.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They were not willing or open to negotiate. I would suggest candidates request additional vacation time or get confirmation on training expectations.

Consultant Interview

Consultant
Seattle, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Avanade in October 2008.

Interview Details – Recruiter called me from a monster posting. Quick 30 minutes on the phone with the recruiter. They told me up front 80% or more travel. About a week later I had my second interview. This was also on the phone, this time with a technical person, he asked some questions based on my resume, told me about the company and gave me a good idea what to expect. About two weeks after that I had my in person round. This next interview was also technical, but was much harder, I was asked about projects and systems i'd designed and asked why i designed them in that way. Next interview, the same day, was also in person, this time with a director level. This interview was about soft skills. Had i ever been a consultant, what would i do in various difficult customer situations. After this I went home and waited. About a week later I got a call with an offer. We went back and forth a bit, and then agreed on something

Interview Question – Faced with a customer who is having a bad day and in general isn't happy with the way the project is going, but has no logical reason for it, what would you do?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I negotiated for a small signing bonus. I was not able to negotiate for more salary. The salary offered was already very competitive.
