    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Avaya in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty straightforward. I came across the position through a referral and ended up interviewing with 4 different people - hiring manager, a teammate, and 2 extended teammates. The interview questions were all straightforward and job related. There were not much questions about "fit" which is unusual. This may go to say something about the distributed culture of the company.

    Interview Questions
    • How would I improve the product or design the product of the future   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated for a higher signing bonus. Although the hiring manager approved right away it still took over a week for HR to get the approvals. It seems like HR is pretty lean and centralized so they may be overwhelmed.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Avaya in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    This was the best interview process that I have gone through in a long time. The recruiter were very responsive and the interview process went very quickly, which was great for me. After my initial contact from Avaya Recruiter, I had an interview with another Avaya recruiter, which was followed by 2 one-on-one interviews with direct report sales leader and VP of Sales. It was great that my meeting with VP of Sales was via VTC and held on Xmas Eve so not to hold up the hiring process.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the interview questions were standard and not difficult to answer since my experience and skillset matched my resume.   Answer Question

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.
