    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Avention (Boston, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    it is a phone interview. I was asked about the status of working in the US at first because I am a international student.It goes according to your resume mostly. Then she asked questions like biggest challenge and achievement in the past half year since I have been here. I felt nervous because I sometimes can not hear her clearly. it is just the problem of international student I guess.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Avention.

    Interview

    The interview process was fast. There was an initial phone screening, then you're brought in to meet with your director and the VP of Sales. Should you make it past that interview, they bring you back to meet with the SVP of Global Sales and Services. This is more of a test to see if she feels you'll fit into the culture. The most difficult person to interview with is the VP of Sales.

    Interview Questions

    • There really weren't any questions that were overly difficult. Probably the only trick type question was being asked how you were able to get away from your current job to make the interviews.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated via the recruiter. Since I was a top performer, they offered me a higher base than some of the others hired.
