    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Nokia (Bangalore (India)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I had applied through employee referral. 1st round was system based where coding had to be done for the given problem statements. 2nd & 3rd rounds were face to face discussion with 2 member panel in each on Core Java, Webservices, Spring, Javascript, AJAX, jQuery. Final round HR.

    Interview Questions

    • 1st round is the most difficult to crack. High precision is required for getting the solution. System test cases must get executed to be able to get through. I was the only one to get through out of approx. 125 people who had appeared on that day.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They don't negotiate easily. I had performed extremely well in all the rounds so they considered to offer me almost as I expected.
