Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Huawei Technologies in August 2010.

Interview Details – Single day interview which had a written test and the selected ones will be interviewed the same day. Had three rounds of interview. 2 technical and 1 HR. Technical round was fairly easy. Once you reach HR round, the job is almost sure.

Interview Question – How fast do you work?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Simple.
