    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Avaya in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was surfing the web for jobs in the Call Center market and came across openings for Avaya. It required that I have a login in and password and account before I proceeded. After several attempts I was able to create an account. Once in the site I had to find the original job I was interested in. There are hundreds of jobs listed there. After finding the job I followed instructions and upload my resume and cover letter. Then I was required to answer several pages of questions. After the application was complete it took 2 weeks before I was contacted to set up a phone interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Avaya in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Company was very quick to respond throughout the process, after submitting resume a few email exchanges were made, phone interview was set up then an on-site interview took place. The on-site interview lasted 6 hours and was interviewed by 8 different people throughout that time. The people seemed 'normal' for the most part but there were areas with the nerdy and quiet stereotypes.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Avaya in July 2009.

    Initial interview was via phone - standard reiteration of the submitted resume.
    Second interview was with the manager and dealt with my previous experience and what I had accomplished
    Third interview was with the Senior Manager - more of a warm/fuzzy, get-to-know-you interview.
    Fourth interview was with the Director - again one of those get-to-know-you interviews.
    The latter 2 appeared to be justification interviews, The decision had already been made and upper management just wanted to check.
