Bewerbung

Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im März 2012 bei Avanade (Austin, TX (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

Vorstellungsgespräch

I've been interviewing for with Avanade for about 2 months now, and I am approaching my last interview. I originally started interviewing for a developer position, but then changed to an analyst position. The interview process for the analyst position was a lot less stressful, and focused on your soft skills rather than recall.

Gründe für die Ablehnung

The travel was a bit too much.

    Angebot abgelehnt

    Schweres Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Mai 2010 bei Avanade (Seattle, WA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    One of my friends from my undergrad is a consultant at Avanade, so when I graduate from my masters program, I asked for a referral. After she sent in my referral, it only took a couple days to get an initial phone interview scheduled. They seem to be really keen on internal referrals, so I recommend tapping all your resources to find someone in the company that can refer you. A referral from an Accenture employee would probably work also.
    The first phone interview was with a consultant in the field consisted of some behavior questions: tell me about a time when... The interviewer also asked skills related questions such as tell me about the techniques you use to elicit and document requirements. It lasted about 1 hour.
    After that, I was scheduled for an in person interview at their Seattle headquarters office. I think this happened because I live in Seattle, and that if didn't live there, it would have been another phone interview. This interview was called a "skills 2 interview" and was a bit more intense on the skills related questions. I got a couple wrong and interviewer was not at all disappointed. He said he got the same questions wrong in his interview. They're really just looking to see how you solve problems not necessarily for the correct answers.
    After that interview the company told me they were preparing to make me an offer and wanted to do one final in person interview to determine the level/pay scale at which they would hire me.
    One thing that was clear right away, was that the consultants here work long hard hours. I suppose that true of most consultants, but the two that interviewed me were both on 12 hour days the days they talked with me.

    • You have 100grams of gold to distribute evenly among 10 goldsmiths. They are each to make 10 coins of 1 gram each. When you get them back, you know one goldsmith is making coins of 0.9 grams and keeping the rest. Measuring the least amount of times how would you determine which smith is cheating?   4 Antworten
    • Tell me about a time when you failed to meet a deadline on a project, why you think you missed it, and what you would differently in the future.   Frage beantworten

    Gründe für die Ablehnung

    I turned down the offer because it took them to long make a final decision on what level they wanted to hire me at. I had another on the table that was about to expire, and Avanade could not make a decision within my time frame. All-in-all they're hiring process seems to take at least a month likely longer.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im März 2011 bei Avanade (Houston, TX (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I interviewed with 3 different people via phone and then a one-on-one with a Regional Manager. An initial phone interview (non-technical) and then two technical interviews with two different technical people. I did well on the phone interviews and when I had a teleconference call with the Regional Manager for about an hour, I felt that he was expecting someone younger and I received an email indicating that it may take several months before an appropriate position was available and that they would keep in touch. I never heard from them again.

     I saw the same position posted the next day again. They also use a background company that asks questions that would definitely indicate your age (such as date of college graduation, date of birth, etc.) which I don't answer prior to an offer since a company might have a propensity to discriminate against certain protected classes. I suspect that they might be one of these types of companies.

    Business Analyst-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Anonymer Bewerber im Vorstellungsgespräch in Chicago, IL (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)
    Angebot abgelehnt
    Positive Erfahrung
    Durchschnittl. Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2012 bei Avanade (Chicago, IL (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I first applied to Avanade via online resume drop (aka a black hole with most employers). I was lucky because some corporate recruiter thought that I was somehow connected in the IT industry, so he got in touch in November 2011 asking me if I knew anyone who might be interested in a job with Avanade. I told him I didn't and explained my situation (a couple years out of college, but still looking for my first full-time job). He immediately referred me to a recruiter (Lisa), with whom I dealt for the rest of my recruiting process.

    I first set up a phone interview/screening with Lisa, and after a couple reschedulings, we had it and she was impressed so she moved me on. At that point we discussed which service line I'd like to be a part of, and we decided on CRM. She then arranged a technical phone interview with a director in the CRM service line, which I finally had after a couple reschedulings as well. This interview did not end up being technical at all,l but this guy was impressed with me, and told Lisa so. (Each time I spoke with Lisa after an interview, she always liked to ask how I thought the interview went before telling me the feedback; maybe she only does this when feedback is positive.) In December, Lisa talked to me about setting up an in-person interview with a director, but I was travelling, and then the interviewer's schedule changed, so that never happened. In January, Lisa got in touch and told me that CRM no longer had any open positions, but they were interested in moving me along with another service line. We discussed, and agreed on BI. She then set up another technical interview with a director. When I actually had the call, it ended up not being with the person I expected, but no big deal. This interview was, indeed, a bit technical, but nothing crazy. He just asked me questions about how I would deal with different situations that a BA might encounter. He moved me along, and Lisa asked me to come into the Chicago office for a final round interview on a Friday.

    On the interview day, I realized that I was interviewing for a recent-grad program, but no big deal. I was with about 10 other candidates. They put us in a conference room with some breakfast and some current Avanade employees (somewhat recent hires). Then they gave us a presentation, and then we had about 4 hours in which each person had two half-hour interviews, and the rest was down time to talk to the current employees, and also work on a low-pressure writing assignment (something like "why is Avanade a good fit for your career"). Then we had lunch and an HR presentation. This was followed by a low-key group activity in which they observed how we worked. I won't tell you what exactly the activity was, but it was pretty fun, and not hard.

    By that time, I had received a competing offer from another company, and I told my recruiter about it. She must have really hurried the decision process because by the following Wednesday, I had an offer. She asked for my answer by the next day. I asked for the weekend, but the most she could give me was Friday (because of an upcoming start-date and the paperwork that had to be processed in time). It was a hard decision process, and Avanade was extremely appealing, but I decided to decline the offer and the accept the competing offer. I will definitely keep Avanade in mind as my career progresses. Lisa (my recruiter) was extremely professional and very nice, and gave me an overall great experience with the company.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • You're a Business Analyst, and you're dealing with two customers who give you some data. They use the same algorithms or decision processes, but the end results that they give you are different. How do you deal with this, and figure out what's going on?   1 Antwort
    • Have you ever had a time where you had to convince people to adopt technology? How did you do it?   Frage beantworten

    Gründe für die Ablehnung

    I had an offer from another company, and, while the position offered less learning and growth opportunity than the position with Avanade, I chose it because it also offered much better work/life balance (eg. no travel, decent and flexible hours, etc.) and pay was comparable. It was a very difficult decision though. If anyone is ever faced with the decision between two jobs, just remember that there's no wrong choice.

    Ich habe mich über eine Hochschule oder Universität beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im November 2015 bei Avanade (Los Angeles, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied for the Business Analyst position in October 2015 for the Los Angeles office. It was a very straightforward interview process. I went to their table at my university career fair, and they were very nice. The next day, I met with them in our career center for a 30-minute interview (more of an overview of my resume, why I wanted to do consulting, basics of the application process). About a month later, I had my second round interview. It was with a current consultant. The first 15 minutes were some questions he had for me. The next 30 minutes were dedicated for me to lead the interview and "pick" his brain for any and all information I wanted to know. The topics were up to me, but I asked about the life of a consultant, the day-to-day tasks and career planning in the company, etc. This was very valuable, so come with questions beforehand.
    About a month later, I was invited to the final round in-house interview, which consisted of one interview with a manager and a group case presentation. After their initial presentation, I had a single interview with one of the managers who was in charge of the group I applied for (BA for me, SD or SE for other people). The interview was relaxed and was more an opportunity for me to speak with someone who had been with the company for a while and see if this was a good fit for me. The main part of the in-house interview came with our group case. We were given the prompt the day before, but we got the "ask" the day of. It wasn't a technical case, as it focused more around the requirements gathering from the "CEO" and then presenting our conclusion in an effective way.
