Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Durham, NC

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in May 2007.

Interview Details – I found a contract house online, called Aerotek, and they set up an interview for me with Ericsson. Aerotek was very supportive, meeting with me before the interview with some words of wisdom and whatnot. The interview for Ericsson involved several separate interviews by the members of the group I was interviewing to join (it was a small group, but it seems to be the standard here to have several people interview a candidate).
The group had a variety of people, with some things that were repeated with each person, and only a few things that were only hit on by particular individuals. Everyone wanted to know what was important to me about the workplace. One person gave me a logic test, which I enjoyed because I like logic problems.
The office is pretty lax, most people wear jeans, though, I still would not advise jeans for interview apparel. There's several areas in this particular office, meaning even if you start out with one job, there's a couple areas to move around to, but they are all telecommunications, so there's the software, the hardware, the testing, the research, and so on, but all about phones.
My particular branch is becoming part of a joint venture with ST, so the culture may adapt some in the future, but it will likely stay very much the same.

Interview Question – I had not expected to be asked logic questions, which made me nervous. The first one was a weigh nine items on a balancing scale to find the odd one out in the fewest scale uses   View Answers (3)

Negotiation Details – As a student straight out of college, using a contract house, I did no negotiating.

  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – HR round was so bad and the person was not ready to bargain. I would recommend that please be rigid to your expectations. If HR feels that you can negotiate on your expecctation they will just lower their CTC they are offering

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
