    Software Developer Interview

    Interview Details

    Was initially contacted by a Technical Recruiter by email to discuss about find out the best times to call. After talking on the phone with the recruiter, an appointment to talk to a member of the team was made. The member talked about the product, asked about my projects, and asked a couple basic technical questions.

    After that, the recruiter contacted me back about an in person interview. After scheduling the interview, the recruiter sent a schedule of the interview along with who I was meeting. The interview was with five members of the engineering team and the recruiter in 1 on 1 sessions. They talked about the product if needed and asked about my projects and only one of the members gave technical questions. They told me that they will contact me back in about a week.

    Director Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Avid Technology in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Excrutiangly slow and frustrating process. Started with HR screen, followed by phone, then MULTIPLE in-person interviews. Over 12 interviews all together. Sadly, a very inept HR department, with little interest in returning phone calls or giving status updates. Pre-employment background check is run by a bunch of idiots, so be prepared! It's run by outsourced workers, who made some glaring errors.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tewksbury, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Avid Technology.

    Interview Details

    The HR process is exceedingly slow. The recruiters do not return emails or phone calls. I applied for a job that I did not get and could not get anyone in HR to talk to me. When I actually got them on the phone and asked about the status, they would tell me that they would have to call me back, but never did. Repeatedly. I had to call the hiring manager to find out the position was filled.
    For the job I did get, the process took months.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer started swearing and yelling out of the blue, then asked me how I would deal with a customer acting in that fashion.   Answer Question
