Software Testing Engineer Interview

Software Testing Engineer
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent.

Interview Details – Interviews are pretty difficult. A phone interview and one interview with a senior member of the team. Then up to 5 various team members grill for nearly a full day on various technical and cultural details. Mostly they are looking to determine if you understand the concepts and are willing / able to learn.

Interview Question – Nothing really unexpected. Questions regarding past experiences in the field and details to ensure that you understand what you were doing in depth.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate stock options and $1000 signing bonus. But this was a long time ago...

IPD Engineering Department Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent in September 2009.

Interview Details – I applied through my schools coop program and after about 10 days i got a mail scheduling a phone interview I wasnt told any details except that it would last for 30mins. The interview was okay the interviewer apologized for delaying the call by 5 mins. He then took about 6mins to tell me about alcatel and the nature of the position i applied for, he told me to ask questions if was in doubt at any point. After that he went through my resume and told me to explain some of my projects at university also to tell me a bit of my past work experience, some questions on routing protocols and asked if i had worked with any alcatel equipment before, he then asked some behavioral questions like about my strengths and weaknesses and why i chose alcatel. He was a very nice chap though, and told me a decision will be sent to my schools coop office. I wasnt sure whether there was going to be a next interview but apparently i dont think so since he was the Manager of the Engineering team
