Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

Interviewed at Avaya

Interview Details – Had a phone interview with the hiring manager first telling me about all the groups that were looking to hire, what they do. This was an interview to see where I would fit with my skills and my preferences and which groups I would be interested in. Then after the phone interview, had on-site interview for the entire day where I met up with the individual groups that were mentioned over the phone and talked to them in depth about what they do, my work/project experience, and any questions about the group I had. Again, to see if I was a fit for their group and if their group was a fit for me.

Interview Question – Mostly behavioral type questions. Talking about things from my resume. Getting to know me as a person and my skill set.   Answer Question

Web Services Manager Interview

Web Services Manager
Denver, CO

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Avaya in March 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process was an optimistic experience, mainly based on the initial hiring manager. The goals projected in the interview felt clear and strong.

Following the interview process the background check was a nightmare, and in retrospect a red flag about the company. The vendor assigned to the background check performed MINIMAL service, requiring me to comb through old documents, paystubs, etc in order to prove my employment record. The literally would not call a company more than once to verify employment. This required a near pack-rat method of document storage in order to pass the check.

Onboarding was also an ultimately worthless process requiring much personal time that did not translate into a running start with the company.

Interview Question – "What is your strategy for working with an internal IT unit that operates with different goals, budgets, and needs from your team's project?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The company offers a very competitive salary, but it will likely remain frozen for the duration of your career there.

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Waltham, MA

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Avaya.

Interview Details – Applied online through MassTLC and got a call within a week to do a phone interview right then. Having not prepared, I told them I was busy and rescheduled for the next day. Phone interview was only about 15 minutes and a breeze: very general questions about experience, why Avaya, that sort of thing. Set up a time over the phone to come in for onsite interview when I was going to in the area a week later. Onsite was 2:1, only behavioral questions, and extremely comfortable. They extended an offer within 2 weeks of onsite interview

Interview Question – Biggest strength, biggest weakness, what do you want out of your first internship, really basic personal questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – This was for a summer internship and they were extremely flexible for start and end time - i started two weeks before they initially asked and ended almost a month early due to a study abroad program I mentioned in the interview.
