    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Avigilon (San Francisco, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I thought the interviewers were too full of themselves. "We work 14 hour days!" "I would sacrifice my marriage for this company!" "Don't take us all the way through the process and then tell us you aren't interested, otherwise you'll be on a black list for 6 months and nobody will talk to you!" Sorry, but that is not the kind of company I want to work for!

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Avigilon (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was very difficult, had to do a 30-60-90 sales plan which is highly scrutinized. Had a total of 4 interviews, the last of which I was put on a plane and sent to Chicago. They stressed very much that they are looking for high enerergy and hard working individuals. The key to interviewing with them is to come prepared, they liked that. Do your research on the company, and it helps to have somewhat of a knowledge of the industry. The first level interviews is more of a casual conversation. The second was highly detailed.

    Cost Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Avigilon (Dallas, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    1) The requirements in the job description for Plano plant targeted a higher level than a cost accountant. To fill the requirements it was a two man job. It included interfacing with the Operations Management for budgeting/variance analysis and providing KPIs/root cause analysis. Pretty hard for a cost accountant to interface at that level.
    2) Asked for comparisons with other operations run by cost accountants - Vancouver operations run by Plant Controller with corporate accounting support.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avigilon.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter, typical phone screening, then an interview. We did it via video which while better than phone is not nearly as good as in-person. The recruiter was well versed in the company history. The touched all the basics, in terms of history, story, market, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Fairly basic questions. The CEO wanted to talk more about how great he was, rather than how great the company was. Maybe it was an off day for him, but I certainly wasn't interested in working there. It is unfortunate because it looks like a good company.   Answer Question
