    1 phone call, 3 in person interviewers, 1 interviewer by Skype, 1 interviewer by phone. All were very friendly and asked questions to know better my soft skills. Only 1 technical interviewer, the technical questions were very easy. 30 minutes per interviewer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Avid Technology in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was cumbersome and tedious. The organization was not respectful of my time as a candidate and tended to over-book interviews via phone, Skype, and in person. The team that I met with was not welcoming and more judgemental as if I was on trial. In the end, I decided it was not an organization I wanted to be part of.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Avid Technology (Santa Cruz, CA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Four engineers, technical manager, and group manager, took about 6 hours total. Engineers were free to ask any questions they liked, so difficulty was variable. From completely non-technical, to easy, to somewhat difficult technical questions were asked. Took me to lunch, was good to get to know the culture and personalities.
