    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at ADTRAN.

    Interview

    After filling out the job application, I received a call from the person in HR over hiring. She told me that they wanted to schedule an interview. When I went in for my interview, I sat in the waiting room with over potentials until my name was called. I was lead into a room with a man at a desk. He was friendly and asked me questions. Then he offered me a job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ADTRAN.

    Interview

    College student interviewing for entry-level position. 8 hour interview process, cycled through about 10 different groups/managers. Each interview was different in terms of length (20 min - 1 hr), number of interviewers (1 - 7), type of questions, etc. Some focused solely on soft skills, some solely on technical questions, some were a mix. No breaks except for lunch which was also an interview.

    Interview

    I interviewed with some representatives at my school. They were quite nice and friendly. I asked some questions I had about the company and they asked about what I was interested in, the classes I was taking, and why I chose my major. I was invited for a second round of interviews on the Huntsville campus. They took me on a tour of the campus and I had two interviews while I was there. They asked me some technical questions dealing with the classes I have had up till then. I received an offer a few weeks later.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at ADTRAN.

    Interview

    Some company representatives came to a university career fair, where the first non-technical interview took place the day after the career fair. Then within about a week I was contacted by a recruiter to go and interview on the ADTRAN campus (which is absolutely lovely, by the way). They provided hotel accomodations for the night before at the Best Western hotel which is about 15 minutes away (driving) from their location. The interview day consisted of approximately 30 minute interviews from 10:30 AM to 4:45 PM. During each time slot, I was interviewed by 1 or 2 people. Interview types varied but, in general, there were technical interviews and non-technical interviews. The technical interviews consisted of writing code ranging from reversing a string to bit manipulations to questions about polymorphism and object-oriented programming. There were also some OS questions thrown in (i.e. deadlock causes and prevention, mutexes and semaphores, etc.) The non-technical interviews involved questions about previous experience, items on my resume, and "What would you do in this situation?" type questions. Overall the day was a bit exhausting and a bit repetitive for the non-technical stuff, but it was definitely fun.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ADTRAN (Huntsville, AL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Was first recruited at my University, and had a short interview. Few technical questions were asked at this point, and I was invited to interview in Huntsville in a few weeks. The onsite interview was a long day. I had 9 interviews, all with different departments. There were a few technical questions, but they were fairly basic. I asked a lot of questions about what each group did, but by the end of the day it all started to run together. Each interview was different. Some were with a single manager, but most were with a manager and a few of their engineers. The campus was very beautiful, and I got the impression that this is a very team-based workplace.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions varied alot by team. One team asked about bit-manipulation, one team was more interested in object-oriented concepts.   Answer Question

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ADTRAN.

    Interview

    Phone interview by the manager, then phone interview by team member and on-site by everyone possible. Don't be surprised if an intern is taking your interview.Remain calm and composed on the interview day. May sure you brag about your achievements, most people appreciate that, although you are not master. Most people hiring will be told to interview same day like 5 min before, so don't be nervous about anything
