Interview Details – Went through a handful of phone interviews, some of which discussed technical responsibilities and some of which discussing the project itself. There was a technical phone interview as well where I discussed many common interview questions with the interviewer. This interview took about 45 minutes to an hour.
After the interviews were completed, I was sent and NDA form and asked to sign it. After the fact, there were more phone calls about the compensation and relocation and start date.

Senior Staff Engineer Interview

Senior Staff Engineer
Santa Clara, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Huawei Technologies in October 2011.

Interview Details – Pleasant. Did not ask any question regarding my current job/project. General discussion on past experience and approach to problems in my field of work.

Negotiation Details – Once you give your current compensation, they will typically match it and throw in 2/3 yr sign on bonus. Take care to give your complete total comp, not just salary and bonus. Because Huawei does not have RSU/stock option/ESPP etc.
