    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlingame, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Avira in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Their process for hiring for people who aren't local involves a call with their recruiter and a 1 hour timed exercise where they give you a mockup which you must code and return to them when done. It should be completed within an hour. The next part I'm told is speaking on the phone with their developer and if that goes well they fly you out to meet in person.

    6. O final round

    I was offered to come to Germany for final round of interview. Interviewer asked me for salary expectation, I mentioned that. They tried to close the deal with me over phone. So i asked them to give me time to reply. On replying back I said I was open to negotiation and offered them a package.
    The company or the hiring person did not come back , On writing several emails the neither the HR or hiring person replied.
    THis is a very sad state of affairs at Avira. Where they do not inform the candidate of the next steps. I had prepared everything form my side to fly to Germany. But the later the company just vanished and refused to answer my emails.
    On forcing a reply out of them they replied. Its a very un-courteous , un-professional attitude from the company
