Group Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Avanade (Irving, TX) in March 2016.

Interview

To be honest, I had to stop the interviewer because the interview was going the direction of a "terms" test and whether or not I knew what the interviewer was discussing (more or less the topics were coming from a company generated script from what I can tell based on how things were being read). The beginning of the conversation was to ramp up my background and discuss what I had done in my career yet the focus was then quickly shifted to this "skills" portion where the rating scale was established. If I knew I was going to be tasked with a "terms test", I could have easily pulled up a basic architecture map of the MS product in question and start responding to the terms that were asked in regards to that build in question.

Advice to the Recruitment Office: When the company advertises "we want to know about your IT management experience" from the recruitment office, make sure that the interview is defined and delivered to the right individual so that employee is properly trained to handle that general screen. The company should not be advertising one job and work to push you into a technical role regardless if you want to or not. I felt like I got the bait and switch. I applied to be a manager and that is where I want my career to go but I guess you need to be more blatantly clear with these folks on the phone prior to taking that step for a phone screen.

Also, the company is a pure consulting play, not what I was told to expect at all....

Although, I got a laugh out of the fact that the guy who interviewed me with the title of "group manager" said "he didn't have to really do anything in his role and liked it"..... Priceless.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Avanade (Trumbull, CT) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Lengthy and frequent. At least 7 phone interviews before the decision to hire. I understand the need to be thorough but the vetting process can be cut in half by consolidating some of these conversations.

    Interview

    Simple and easy process. HR recruitment lady was great (she has left though)... guided through the process. Interviews were easy, but answers to questions were misleading in regards to the role and businesses current situation.
