    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nokia Networks in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a phone interview about a week and a half later. It was a panel interview with two interviewers. They went over my resume and asked a few technical questions. About a week later, I was given another interview but this time it was face-to-face. It consisted of two back to back one hour panel interviews with three interviewers each. Both interviews were mostly technical going over RF circuit design fundamentals.

    Telecom Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Nokia Networks in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met NSN representatives at a campus job fair where I was screened and got a call a month later setting up a Skype interview. The interview team told me it was their first Skype interview and I was the guinea pig. As a result I did not have to travel to their HQ to interview. It was a 1:3 interview where the team members took turns asking me questions and telling me about their experiences with NSN. Overall it was a very pleasant experience where I felt that I could fully express myself given the time alotted. 6 more weeks pass and I finally get a call saying I have an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Interview was entirely "tell me a time when" type questions as well as going over my experiences in school and work. They looked for teamwork, leadership, and work ethic. I expected technical questions since the job description mentions many technologies and terms but there weren't any.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Nokia Networks in April 2013.

    There were 3 interviews- 2 on the phone and 1 in person at their facility in Irving, Texas. The first phone interview with a friend of the manager I am working for now. He asked questions to get to know me and my accomplishments. Then to try to understand what I wanted to do. The next interview was a technical phone interview with the manager I am working for now. He asked me technical questions about my resume. Most questions focused on little details of the C/C++ programming language. The last f2f interview I traveled to their facility in Irving Texas. They paid for my hotel stay and gas. I met the friend of the manager and we had informal talk about the group and what they did. I asked him question about how I could succeed with the group, etc. Then before I knew it, he started talking about bonuses and salary.

    Interview Questions
    • C/C++ programming question such as left and right shift of bits. Which has precedence over the other right shift or the and logical operator? And some compiler questions and how it handles the code.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nokia Networks in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview which basically consisted of talking about my projects, some C++ questions, and data structures.

    Onsite interview consisted of talking to 3 engineers and 1-2 managers. Everybody was pretty friendly except one engineer that seemed anti-social and very monotone. It almost seemed like he hated me from the moment he stepped in the door.

    2 of the engineers had about 100 questions printed out on paper. Some of them repeated each other. So it could be that they weren't very well prepared and got them from the same source. The questions were simple and you either knew the answer or you didn't. There was a few coding questions on the whiteboard.

    Interview Questions
    • Some very high level questions that a customer would worry about. It was difficult for me to get the answer from a programmers perspective.   Answer Question
