    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

    • 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 through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Avaya in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Objective testing process. You take several battery tests for abilities & skills based on the job you're applying for. If you pass them you get hired - no interview process for "craft" jobs. This is a fair and non-discriminatory process. You cant be weeded out just because someone doesn't like your looks.

    Negotiation Details
    For craft jobs, there is no negotiation. You go by a Union contract with set pay and increases, with an explanation of your benefits.
