    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Nokia Networks (Athens (Greece)).

    Interview

    I applied through the company website, sent my CV and a cover letter. I was contacted to proceed to the first stage of the hiring process (group interview + written test of 1h30min) and asked to send an essay prior to that. Moved on to the second interview on 1:1 basis and never got a response on behalf of the HR team. Overall, very long process and lack of follow-up.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Nokia Networks.

    Interview

    The whole process consists of three parts, a test assessment, a technical interview and a HR interview. The assessment test was a 75-minute multiple choice computer-based test on the following topics: one programming language of your choice (c,c++,java), unix/linux, tcp/ip. After succeeding in the test you continue to the technical interview (1 hour duration). They asked me about my academic background, mainly in Java and other programming courses. After that they rejected me so I have no info about the last HR interview.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Nokia Networks (Athens (Greece)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and after a few days they invited me to their premises to do three assessment tests including Bash scripting, Networking and one programming language of my choice(Java,C, C++, Python).
    After the tests all candidates had to work together to to come up with a list of the most important items they would choose in a catastrophic scenario. Our scenario was that we were stranded on the moon after our spaceship crashed and we had to order some items according to their value and weight (oxygen tanks, matches(!), etc..).
    Overall the entire process was fun and they were pretty casual with the candidates.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Nokia Networks (Budapest (Hungary)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    First there is a test round starts with a general test which contains IQ, programming and telecom questions. Then there are tests for testers, developers, cloud computing specialists, one of these is required. Then there are optional tests like: C++, Linux, Telecom, Java. I choose test for testers which was an interesting but solvable test because it has unordinary tasks like: write a step by step manual for an alien for how to brush teeth.
