Director Interview

Director
Burlington, MA

I applied online and 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

Project Manager
Tewksbury, MA

I applied through an employee referral and 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 Question – 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

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
New York, NY

I applied through other source and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Avid Technology in December 2011.

Interview Details – I was referred to the person to whom I would report (Paul Brack). I met with Paul Brack over coffee and he was great! Then I was referred to his boss Kurt Krinke. Kurt Krinke spoke to me briefly over the phone but did not return my emails requesting an in-person meeting. I believe Kurt had already selected the person he wanted. My understanding is the person who got the job had a software sales background, not a marketing and post-production background like mine.

Interview Question – How comfortable are you with maintaining a sales quota?   Answer Question
