    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide.

    Interview

    - Teleconference with 2 functional managers about my qualifications and experience. - Telephone interview with HR about my background and career path. - I have heard the process was started just for a specific candidate and he had been accepting greetings for the job, even before my HR round. I did not want to believe in the claims by that time and continued my round with HR. But the mentioned name has the job right now and I guess the local team interviewed me just to fulfill the company procedures. Still there is no acknowledgement about the result of my application.
