    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avanade (San Antonio, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted an online application, went through an online screening, and then a phone interview/screening. I received a second ‘technical’ interview a week after that. The interviewer was very difficult to understand and the questions were based on data structures concepts which I had not reviewed in years or was I even expecting. The interviewer had a very heavy accent and was very cold throughout the whole thing. The phone kept disconnecting throughout making the process even more nerve wrecking. The whole experience was horrible.

    Review you core concepts and definitions for:
    Data Structures (algorithm design, OO programming, sorting algorithms)
    Database design
    Software engineering

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Avanade (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview, was fine. Second technical phone interview\test was a nightmare, the interviewer did no speak english as their first language making it very difficult (when phone interview\tests can be hard enough to hear correctly). It became clear to me the questions were being generated on the fly by simply flipping though a C# book, finding a pieace of information, rephrasing it as a question and then expecting a response that matches just what the book has. This gave the questions (the ones I could hear and understand) no context and so they could be answered many ways, but if they were not answer as the book had them they were wrong. Frustrating painful experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avanade (Houston, TX) in October 2008.

    Interview

    The process started with a phone screen with a recruiter with some questions about myself and a few technical questions. Expectations (position, responsibility, compensation, etc) were set before moving forward to the next step. It took two more technical skills tests that lasted about an hour over the phone and an in-person interview with the hiring manager. I was given a verbal offer on the spot and an offer letter in a couple days.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a question about graphics / topology - how to do lines between a few points drawn on the whiteboard without the lines crossing each other.   3 Answers
    • Authorization vs Authentication.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There isn't much to negotiate. The salary range was set per position and the best way to get a better pay is to do better on initial phone call with the recruiter.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avanade in April 2017.

    Interview

    First round was HR screening, just went through my resume and then forwarded my resume to the hiring manner.

    Second Round was technical phone interview with the Solutions Developer, asked some basic ASP.NET questions and C# questions. Told he was happy with my answers and that I have been selected for the next round.

    Third round was within a week of the 2nd interview round. The interview was with a Manger with a developer background, I was asked to prepare a presentation on the projects what I had worked on and he asked me technical questions and behavioral questions from that. He too informed me that he was satisfied with me and that he'll recommend to hire me to his director. However, he clearly mentioned that it doesn't mean I'll get the job offer because there other considerations that come into play like expected salary, experience etc etc.

    I'm yet to receive an offer from them... Will update if I do.
