I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Huawei Technologies in August 2010.

Interview Details – Single day interview which had a written test and the selected ones will be interviewed the same day. Had three rounds of interview. 2 technical and 1 HR. Technical round was fairly easy. Once you reach HR round, the job is almost sure.

Interview Question – How fast do you work?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Simple.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Huawei Technologies in January 2014.

Interview Details – Basically 3 rounds.
1.Written-MCQ, 3 sections,you have a choice in either Java or C Programming, Aptitude is mandatory. Easy,40 questions in 1 hour.
Note:- In case you attempt Java like me you have to write 6 program, in half an hour time. Though the programs are easy -> Bubble sort, Series Printing and likewise.
2. Technical Interview-One on one technical interview, mine lasted for 1 and half hour. The interviewer initially asked good questions, but after few minutes he asked me some puzzles, which I wasn't able to answer. Beware of the puzzles.
3. HR interview

Interview Question – Program- how to divide a number without using division operator.
Puzzles- You have a set of 3 light switches outside a closed door. One of them controls the light inside the room. With the door closed from outside the room, you can turn the light switches on or off as many times as you would like.
You can go into the room - one time only - to see the light. You cannot see the whether the light is on or off from outside the room, nor can you change the light switches while inside the room.
No one else is in the room to help you. The room has no windows.
Based on the information above, how would you determine which of the three light switches controls the light inside the room?
