    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Avaya (Westminster, CO) in July 2009.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They knew my previous salary and topped it with a moving bonus.

    Reasons for Declining

    This was my second lay off with the company within 2 years. Tired of dodging the bullet and wanted to move to another company with a fresh start. I had another option of doing the same job (which I loved) only as a sub-contractor rather than a prime contractor.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Avaya (Buenos Aires (Argentina)) in September 2011.

    Interview

    After being referred, HR contacted me by email to verify data I entered through referral system. Then I was contacted by phone and moved on to a 1 on 1 interview with HR and the regional manager. Once my profile was approved by both of them, an interview with my potential manager was scheduled. However, it was cancelled at the last minute and had to set up a conference call from home with someone else (body language and thorough skill evaluation was not was not performed as a result). Finally, I got a call from HR detailing final proposal.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I didn't get to negotiate, proposal was better than salary and benefits I asked for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Avaya in September 2011.

    Interview

    Very thorough and in-depth interview by geographically dispersed interviewers, in office and connected by audio conference; second interview was in a different location - meeting with 3 interviewers. Focus on the knowledge, personal skills and the value that you are bringing to the company.
    People are not formalistic and looking for real value and essence, yet very approachable.
