    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Avanade.

    Interview

    Application process contains 1 phone screen with HR, 1 technical phone interview, and an In person interview with two directors.

    I was referred by a friend around April of 2017. I didn't hear back until July. The first phone screen was very lax and easy. Recruiter asked about items on my resume and questions relating to customer experiences and working in teams. She also talked a lot about the training programs at Avanade and how the first week of training would be at the Chicago HQ. The screen went on for about an hour.

    Fast forward two - three weeks. After sending in a following up emails asking about my application I finally heard back and was able to proceed to the next step. It was a technical phone interview where I lead the interview by asking questions about the position I am applying for. I spoke with a Visual designer / UX designer. Questions I asked were related to the digital studio and work culture.

    Fast forward another three weeks I sent in another follow up email asking about my application. They told me my 2nd interview went very well and the person I interview had a lot of good things to say about me. But the position I was applying for was recently filled so they asked if I would be interested in a position in the following year in January. I agree'd so I was onto the In person interview.

    Another week or two after that conversation I still did not have a confirmation of my final interview date and location. So I sent in another follow up email where I was able to finally get confirmation of the interview. I interviewed with the senior director and the director. The person who will be making the decision of my offer was the director. On the day of interview he happened to be out of state working on a project so I talked to him through a call. The in person interview had questions relating to my hobbies and interest. They also asked about some of my projects in my portfolio.

    Few days later I get a call telling me my application will not be moving forward and I got some feedback off my interviews.

    All of the people I talked to through out this process has been very very friendly. The only down side to my experience with this was the unorganized scheduling. I've been in contact with this company for over two months and It kind of seems like a waste when you spent two months effort talking to this company.
