    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Avanade (Seattle, WA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    While I was known by many people in the company I still have to do 6 phone interviews, a presentation and marketing plan. I had two video conference interviews and these were interesting. There was a disconnect between the recruiters and other interviewers and in fact I got a rejection notice after I had accepted the offer. So do not worry if you get a rejection letter just follow up with the people who interviewed you.

    Good interview with HR...Very clear communications. When the employer did not feel that my skills were a match, they clearly articulated the reason for it. While, I have a different opinion in regards to their assessment, I was nevertheless pleased by the promptness by which HR communicated back quickly without wasting any ones time and effort further.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Avanade (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2014.

    Interview

    It is a typical first level then second (deeper) level interview. then the HR "soft skills" interview and then an upper management interview. I found that asking questions elicited much more interaction with the interviewer and was probably viewed more positively than had I not asked questions of them.

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Avanade (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Had a phone and group interview as a large amount of employees are referrals. Getting to see if you fit the position and the crowd for a pleasant work environment is important. Employees get along well and part of the interview felt like working along side them finding how well you fit.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing very unexpected. Expect to get drilled on in places you do not have experience as well just to see how deep your knowledge is.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was transparent as positions have consistency under Avanade so each individual should be paid to fit the position. Expectations were set by position details early so that there was plenty of room to choose to move on or not.
