Telecom Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Nokia Solutions and 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 Question – 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

Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate, compensation was very attractive

Human Resources Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Nokia Solutions and Networks in April 2009.

Interview Details – The interview itself is not very difficult, it depends much on the skills of the hiring manager and how well versed they are in terms of proper interviewing. however, it is not that difficult for a candidate with the right skills. the challenging part is the assessment center if the position you are applying for is a managerial position. I had to undertake a day long assessment that luckily went well and I got hired but I would not be able to give any advice on this one except be yourself and prepare a little for the ability tests (verbal and numerical).

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nokia Solutions and Networks in May 2013.

I was always answering questions on the board about different circuits and they asked me questions about Smith charts as well.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Arlington Heights, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nokia Solutions and 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 Question – 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

Reason for Declining – Got a better offer elsewhere

Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Irving, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Nokia Solutions and Networks in April 2013.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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
