Service Engineer Interview

Service Engineer
Noida (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in February 2011.

Interview Details – The process is challenging enough to show you your competancy. Interviews are conducted by senior employees or managers and they are almost always sure what do they need to look in a person as per the requirements. i was actually sitting in front of five managers during my last stage of the interview and then hired when they were convinced enough.

Interview Question – They may ask anything related to your profile. Personally I didn't have any unexpacted question in my interview.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate as I was a fresher back then.

Customer Project Manager II Interview

Customer Project Manager II
Plano, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in June 2012.

Interview Details – Multiple interviews are required, at least one of them will be a panel interview. Managers (at least in the PMO) really like you to be able to use the whiteboard effectively.

Recruiting will drive the interview process, but sometimes candidates will get moved from one recruiter to another which makes communication difficult.

Interview Question – Can you explain your current business process on the whiteboard and describe where you last job fit in that process?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation was possible, the salary was firm, and (as I found out internally), there is absolutely no negotiation on vacation time unless you're an executive. Since the benefits are already outstanding, there's no room to negotiate.

Intern Interview

Intern
San Jose, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in July 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online on their website. Was contacted by their campus recruiter asking a certain set of HR related questions. Replied with my answers immediately. The recruiter got it touch very soon saying one of their teams was interested in interviewing me. The interview was via Skype and was difficult. They expected the interns to know a lot, and rather than have them learn after getting the position, and to gain experience, it was more of an exam

Interview Question – Certain coding questions, even though I specifically mentioned that im a novice   Answer Question

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst

I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide.

Interview Details – I had to go through two interviews. First with my manager and a HR representative. There were lots of behavioral type of questions in the interview. It lasted about one and a half hours. Once passed the first interview, a second interview was called with the Finance Director. It was not so difficult. FD was convinced once he understood my interest to work for the company and my skills to be successful in the role.

Interview Question – Tell me a situation when you were not in agreement with your line manager, and what did you do?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Two things I have negotiated for once I received the offer later- a) Joining date (I wanted to join bit late as I needed few more time to comply with my notice period); and b) Increase of base salary.

They agreed with my 1st negotiation, but there were no room for them to increase the base as I was offered the maximum of their budget for the position.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in September 2013.

Interview Details – I applied to the position in June and received an email in July that I was selected for the next procedure which I will be informed about in the middle of August. I invited to HR interview with a 3rd party company. The interview was good and the HR told me that he will suggest me. I invited to manager interview at Ericsson 1 month later. After manager interview they wanted me to take a test in October. After the test they wanted to make a second manager interview as a second opinion. The process ended in November which I was informed that the recruitment process has been cancelled and therefore they could not opportunity to offer me a position.

Interview Question – Interviews are mostly personality and team skills oriented. The Java test I took was difficult containing many advanced topics also.   Answer Question
