    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Avaya (Westminster, CO (US)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I gave my resume to the recruiter at my university's career fair and chatted for a bit. He scheduled an interview for the following morning. The interview went well. He told me about the positions available at Avaya and asked what my interests were in a position. A few days later, I received a call that they would like to fly me down for an on-site interview as soon as possible. I accepted and scheduled for the following Monday.

    The on-site interview consisted of a full day of 6-8 interviews with various engineers and managers and included a break for lunch. Everyone was very nice and knowledgeable. By the end of the day, my recruiter came back to tell me that they would be sending me an offer by the end of the week. They wanted to know in which department I would like to work. I felt very valued and desired.

    Within a week, I received their offer (and it was very nice). I accepted and have no regrets!

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with the hiring manager first telling me about all the groups that were looking to hire, what they do. This was an interview to see where I would fit with my skills and my preferences and which groups I would be interested in. Then after the phone interview, had on-site interview for the entire day where I met up with the individual groups that were mentioned over the phone and talked to them in depth about what they do, my work/project experience, and any questions about the group I had. Again, to see if I was a fit for their group and if their group was a fit for me.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avaya (Thornton, CO (US)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a manager + one of the team members. I was mostly asked behavioral questions about my past experience and my interests. Then, I was called in to the on-site interview. I was given a tour of the building and got taken out to lunch with the manager and two of the team members. After lunch, I had 3 technical interviews of 45 minutes each where I was asked to describe my past school/work projects and the kind of technology I used. Each interviewer wanted to see how I would fit in the team based on my interests and skills. After a few days, I got a call and an email saying i was accepted.
