    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Alcatel-Lucent.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed over the phone through the school's internship program. Although slow to begin interviewing students (since the company hires at many schools), Alcatel got back to me very quickly following the interview. They asked me what I knew about networking, what I knew about the company, what I'd been doing in class, etc. I talked to them about some small personal software projects.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Alcatel-Lucent in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was done in several stages. First was an interview by a pannel of other people employed in the same position I was applying for. The panel asked questions more and more complex designed to test my knowlege and ability to troubleshoot problems, and demonstrate capability to preform skills listed on my resume. Following this there was a 2 on 1 interview with the manager, again going over the resume and asking more HR type questions. After the interview there was a tour of where, if I were to be hired I would be working. Finally, a meeting with HR to discuss what salary and benefits would be offered for this position.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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
