Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied online and interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide.

Interview Details – Step 1 was to fill out an "online CV" type thing on the Ericsson careers website. (An account on this website need to be created)

About a week later I received a phone call from some HR staff in Ericsson asking me a few basic questions (education, certifications, willing to travel to the company for an on site interview). By the end of the phone call I had an interview set up for the following week.

The interview itself consisted of a 45 minute technical test followed immediately by a typical interview with 3 members of staff. (a HR person, a senior engineer, a manager (not necessarily your future manager) )

The technical test consisted of 10 questions. Approx 6 code questions where you are given snippets of Java code and you must determine the output, and about 4 theory questions where you must explain various practices such as polymorphism, coupling, cohesion etc etc.

The interview lasted about an hour with each member of the 'panel' asking different types of questions.
The HR person naturally asked the "interests and hobbies", "Why should we hire you", "Why do you want to work for us" kinda stuff,

Interview Question – The engineer asked more technical questions such as how would you implement X into Y kinda stuff and various theory questions relating to Java and MySQL.

The manager asked questions like "With the use of the whiteboard, explain a project you recently worked on/completed", Asked questions about what was on my CV, and wanted me to give examples of me participating in teamwork activities and how did i compromise with other people etc etc.

About 10 days later I got a call saying that they liked what they saw and wanted to send me down a contract to review and sign. Overall it was a pleasant and speedy interview process

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide.

Master Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Baile Átha Luain (Ireland)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in December 2011.

Interview Details – I got an interview offer throug Addeco agency.

Both phone interview and on site interview were late, which made me nervous.
On the phone they collected data about my experience and technical expertise.

On site interview with hiring manager, developer an HR personel went ok. There was no "smart" riddles and no "personality profiling" questions. I was talked about my last project. They seemed quite satisfied with me.

Few weeks after interview they notifiied agency that I left them with a good imression, but that I'm not enough senior for that position and don't have enough experience.

They could have told me that before traveling to Ireland, since they knew everything about my past experience from my CV and phone interview. It would save us both from wasting time. Also, they were a bit slow regarding reimbursement of travel expenses, so I had to remind them couple of times before they paid in full.

Interview Question – Explain the architecture of your last project.   Answer Question

Test Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in July 2009.

Interview Details – First off let me state that this interview was for a Co-op (work experience) position. I applied via Ericsson's own Co-op placement site. I heard back from them within about 3-4 weeks and got summoned for an interview. The panel consisted of one HR person and one engineer. The tone was relaxed, a lot of the questions and chat was general. The environment was professional but at the same time relaxed. The interview lasted 45 minutes and they rang me the next morning to tell me i got the position

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Baile Átha Luain (Ireland)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in April 2008.

Interview Details – I was relocating from USA back to Ireland, and was interested in a job in the midlands of Ireland. Phone interviewed while still in USA, and then interviewed on-site in Ericsson Athlone. The position was somewhat outside my field of expertise, as I was a more low-level hardware/firmware programmer, and they were looking for a database, SQL level programmer. Interview was not difficult, mostly talked about my previous experience. A lot of questions about software process, Agile development process, Java, distributed systems.

Interview Question – Explain the software development process.   Answer Question
