    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Budapest (Hungary)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Nokia Networks (Budapest (Hungary)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Firstly, I had to send my CV and an essay in English (they said it could be as long as i wanted it to be). The topic of the essay: Importance of knowledge gained from books vs experience gained while working. After that I was called in for a test (90 min). Test tasks: 1. Write an average manual for a mobile to update the contact list. 2. Rewrite a 2 paragraphs of network architecture manual into a more user freindly form. 3. Reading comprehension task with six questions based on a PDF on network architecture and processes.
    The test was done on an older laptop with a smaller screen and without a mouse, which was a bit surprising and fairly hindering. They said I will be notified in two weeks time or if not I can write them an email.

    Interview Questions

    • The IT text I had to rewrite was quite "hardcore" compared to the fact that they did not require IT experience.   Answer Question

    Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kraków (Poland)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Nokia Networks (Kraków (Poland)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    1. Direct sending a CV (and cover letter; not always required) to company recruiting team or sending CV to person already working for the company and he/she will forward it to recruiting team.
    2. Phone pre-screening and after positive verification of basic telecommunications knowledge ...
    3. ... an interview in the company premises followed by the HR panel.

    Interview Questions

    • Team of interviewers is very skilled and has enormous knowledge about telecommunication and programming field. Many questions were tricky and detailed. I recommend not to over-rate your knowledge and be honest in pre-interview questionnaire - everything you put there will be checked. However, interviewers are really nice and try to lead you to good conclusions - this way they also check your ability of deduction and thinking out of the box.
      HR questions are pretty standard and one can easily prepare himself to answer most of them doing some "googling" before the HR pannel.
