    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Avanade (Seattle, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a recruiter first before a handful of additional Skype interviews prior to an in-person interview with the hiring manager. Each interviewer had a different style and a different set of questions - I was very impressed that each person I met with had reviewed my resume, and often my LinkedIn profile, resulting in very directed and applicable questions.

    • What big ideas do I have that I would like to enact now to help Avanade deliver results for our clients and their customers immediately upon hire?   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Avanade (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Best interview experience I've ever had. Recruiter and Interviewers were extremely professional and transparent throughout the whole process.

    Contacted recruiter who set up interview process. Two phone-based skill screens and one video conference. Skill screens were obviously more technical and the last one was with a VP who wanted to ensure cultural fit.

    Very smooth process overall. Recruiter and HR notified me of each step within a few days of each other.

    Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Avanade (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Had a phone and group interview as a large amount of employees are referrals. Getting to see if you fit the position and the crowd for a pleasant work environment is important. Employees get along well and part of the interview felt like working along side them finding how well you fit.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing very unexpected. Expect to get drilled on in places you do not have experience as well just to see how deep your knowledge is.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was transparent as positions have consistency under Avanade so each individual should be paid to fit the position. Expectations were set by position details early so that there was plenty of room to choose to move on or not.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Avanade (Seattle, WA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    After applying for a job as a manager, I was contacted almost immediately by recruiting. The phone screen went well and a subsequent interview conference call was scheduled. The conference call was rescheduled several times, which I accommodated (and changed some of my personal plans). I phoned in at the appointed time, unable to connect to the conference call. After making some urgent calls and sending email messages, I learned the job 'had been recently filled and my interview canceled'. I felt incredibly disrespected and can only hope Avanade does not treat its employees or customers in this fashion.

    Interview Questions

    • Other than the initial phone screen, verifying my background and experience, I was not asked any questions.   Answer Question

    Senior Analyst, Collaboration Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Avanade (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    4 interviews. 3 Phone interviews and 1 in-person Peer interview
    There was a long period of time between interviews mostly due to the Ops Manager being out of the country and it being during the holidays. this appears to be a one off situation as many have come on-board since me with their process only taking a couple weeks.
    The Peer review was slightly intimidating but very impressive with their ability to walk through scenarios and cater the interview towards the strong points in my resume.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Avanade (Seattle, WA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    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 Questions

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

    Negotiation

    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.
