    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Avaya (Pune (India)).

    Interview

    The process was good only problem was the HR Associate lost all the documents that I had submitted (copies) and so I had to do it again. And I wasn't even informed that the loss has happened. Was just asked to submit. When probed realized the folly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Avaya.

    Interview

    I spoke with a recruiter on the phone then came in for a 1:1 which lasted around 20 mins and was basically told I had the job before I left. I would say as far as interviews go it was pretty easy but that should have been a sign for the type of company it is.

    The recruiter emailed me back and forth to schedule a call. Eventually we settled a time on the same day over the phone but she never called me back on that day. Disappointing process and unprofessional recruiting staff.
