    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Avaya in January 2020.

    Interview

    Started off with an email to schedule a 30 minute technical/behavioral interview. Interviewer asked a lot of textbook questions you would expect on a final exam. This was accompanied with huge sighs if you didn't answer correctly, not only that they wouldn't even address your answer they would just move onto the next textbook question. Horrible learning experience (at least tell me I was wrong and correct me).

    Near the end they asked me two technical questions that required me to read very easy javascript algorithms and then output the response (which I did with ease).

    Moved on to asking about salary, I mentioned my previous salary and they scoffed and said there was no way they would pay me that much, specifically, "not because the company can't afford it but because I wasn't worth it". Very unprofessional. At least they were kind enough to tell me I wouldn't move on to an offer.

    Easy interview if you're good at memorizing textbooks though.
