    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    First was a 30 minute phone interview followed 2 weeks later by a 3 on 1, 1 hour in-person interview. The interview team was very professional and courteous. There was a logistical problem that caused the interview to have a hard cutoff time that did not allow me much time for questions or discussion. Team asked pertinent probing questions but seemed to focus on some narrow areas of interest. I was promised feedback in 2 days but that did not happen for a week and even then I had to push to find out the decision so the recruiting side of the house was somewhat slack and unresponsive.

    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Plano, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer was extremely rude. He asked me to perform several timed tasks that were very vague and then he was extremely critical of everything I did. I know that a certain level of "grilling" is required, but he took it too far. I did not get the position, and while I was there I realized even if I did get the position I would not want to work here.

    Engineering Intern At ESV Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview with one of their engineering managers and he explained that the position was more of a software engineer type. Thus I could not answer any of the technical questions, since my background was more on hardware or firmware type. He asked about structs, unions and linked list because I had C/C++ on my resume. Overall, it was an eye opener as now I know what topics I should learn more about when I practice C/C++ on my own over the summer.
