    Customer Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Avalara (Durham, NC).

    Interview

    Each person that interviewed me was very sharp and personable. The in-person interview was way too long. I interviewed with 4 different people each for 45 minutes, back to back. It would've been much more efficient as a panel interview.

    Web Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avalara (Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Process began with a phone screen with a company recruiter, followed by additional screen with the hiring manager. Both went well, and I was invited for in-person interview. Everyone I met with was extremely friendly, and I enjoyed the atmosphere. The interview itself was meeting with 5 different people, and focused on the role in question, previous experience, and personality. No technical questions were asked, beyond discussing my experience. The whole process was more of a long conversation. Refreshing.

    A good experience overall, and I thought the process went well. Ultimately, no offer was presented, and no indication as to why, but that's fairly typical. I did somewhat get the feeling a decision had already been made prior to my arrival, but purely speculation.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Avalara.

    Interview

    After applying online, they sent me an email to request for a phone interview. Seven minutes later, I responded by providing my availability and phone number. Then, I never hear back from them again. I followed up twice, still no reply. I guess this is a sign of bad management and disorganization.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Avalara in February 2017.

    Interview

    Experienced and older sales candidates need not apply. They are looking for young sales people with the appreciation of being able to start the beer 4:30.

    Take your talents to a company that appreciates experienced sales professionals. Undoubted like a lot of the tech companies, they will end up with inquires from the EEOC.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Avalara (Durham, NC).

    Interview

    Very quick process. They will call you as soon as you leave the building for a start date. The Team Leader will walk you around the facility very quickly and only introduce you to certain people in the department you will be working in. The main focus was on the beer kegs and the ability to drink on house after hours.
