    GMDP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Avaya.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume through university. Got a 15-minute call a few weeks later from the recruiter and discussed basic questions such as why did I apply for the position,etc. A week later I was contacted for a 1:1 video interview with the hiring manager, then a week after that I did a longer 1-hour panel interview. The last interview was a 1:1 with the director. HR called and offered me the position verbally a few days later. The next day I was sent a written offer email through HR along with other documents.

    Overall the hiring process was excellent. The video interviews were convenient and the software (Avaya's own technology) easy to use. Everyone I encountered throughout the hiring process was professional, efficient, and willing to help.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Avaya.

    Interview Details

    Requisitions do not remain open very long and make it difficult to get an interview and complete the on boarding process before the window closes. There is a lot of competition for the offered titles and the panel doesn't always agree on final selections.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    submitted resume online and HR scheduled an Video interview with QA manager. the interview lasted about 30 minutes. all the questions were about the details of the projects I have done for my coursework (I'm new grad) and the work I did for my intern. I got a response one week later. maybe my background did not match the position's requirements perfectly, the manager is very friendly and patient.

    Interview Questions
    • a little unexpected, because no questions were related to technique. all about the projects on resume (asked almost one by one): what did I do in my previous intern, what kind of tool did I use for analysis (the work I did for intern), the role in the team when doing coursework, what did I do for some specific projects.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Avaya in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Regional Sales Leader was knowledgeable about Avaya and the job description. Hopefully the description will be as explained. High pressure, exceptionally nepotistic senior management, too much focus on tactical and not enough on strategic issues,
