    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Avaya (Highlands Ranch, CO) in October 2008.

    Interview

    Vast building. No one to meet you at security. Relied on mobile call to get in the door. Culture vibrant. Positive atmosphere. Great services on sight. Interview began with questions about life, family. Then proceeded to experience. Fairly standard. Second technical interview by panel (three developers). Challenging technical questions, but nothing abnormal or remarkable.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult questions center on Avaya product. They put emphasis on the skill set of course, but are definitely concerned more with how you would apply that skill set to their stack.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Yes, negotiated working virtually. No hitches.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Avaya (Bangalore (India)) in June 2012.

    Interview

    My first encounter with Avaya was horrible to say the least. The interviewer was condescending, and arrogant. I rejected their offer even though they sent me the offer letter. HR had no clue why I was doing this. Overall a very unpleasant experience. The second time I was called for an interview for a different team, and fortunately the interviewers were more accommodating and friendly this time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Avaya (Pune (India)) in August 2009.

    Interview

    I'd applied to their pune office for the post of senior s/w developer/module lead. The experience right from beginning was unprofessional from the HR's end. It seemed as if they were trying to take advantage of the recession and were making me run (read ping) for every thing (apart from the initial call from them). After the very first round of interview (which was actually supposed to close the position as per the HR's initial call), there were about 2 more technical rounds and a PM's round. During the PM round, they sounded as if they were very much inclined towards hiring me. However, even after that round, I had to ping the HR myself to only find out that I was not selected. This was about 30 days after I appeared for the initial Aptitude and 2 tech rounds (on the same day). Must say that initial impression of the company 'thanks' to the HR would have made a huge difference in me opting for Avaya's offer (had I even gotten the same). Afterall initial impression matters... well, from both sides!
