    QA Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Avaya (Thornton, CO) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a manager + one of the team members. I was mostly asked behavioral questions about my past experience and my interests. Then, I was called in to the on-site interview. I was given a tour of the building and got taken out to lunch with the manager and two of the team members. After lunch, I had 3 technical interviews of 45 minutes each where I was asked to describe my past school/work projects and the kind of technology I used. Each interviewer wanted to see how I would fit in the team based on my interests and skills. After a few days, I got a call and an email saying i was accepted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Avaya (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2014.

    Interview

    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,

    Interview

    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 Questions

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