I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Nokia Networks in April 2009.

Interview Details – The interview itself is not very difficult, it depends much on the skills of the hiring manager and how well versed they are in terms of proper interviewing. however, it is not that difficult for a candidate with the right skills. the challenging part is the assessment center if the position you are applying for is a managerial position. I had to undertake a day long assessment that luckily went well and I got hired but I would not be able to give any advice on this one except be yourself and prepare a little for the ability tests (verbal and numerical).

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Arlington Heights, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nokia Networks in April 2013.

Interview Details – Had a phone interview which basically consisted of talking about my projects, some C++ questions, and data structures.

Onsite interview consisted of talking to 3 engineers and 1-2 managers. Everybody was pretty friendly except one engineer that seemed anti-social and very monotone. It almost seemed like he hated me from the moment he stepped in the door.

2 of the engineers had about 100 questions printed out on paper. Some of them repeated each other. So it could be that they weren't very well prepared and got them from the same source. The questions were simple and you either knew the answer or you didn't. There was a few coding questions on the whiteboard.

Interview Question – Some very high level questions that a customer would worry about. It was difficult for me to get the answer from a programmers perspective.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Got a better offer elsewhere

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Irving, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Nokia Networks in April 2013.

Interview Details – There were 3 interviews- 2 on the phone and 1 in person at their facility in Irving, Texas. The first phone interview with a friend of the manager I am working for now. He asked questions to get to know me and my accomplishments. Then to try to understand what I wanted to do. The next interview was a technical phone interview with the manager I am working for now. He asked me technical questions about my resume. Most questions focused on little details of the C/C++ programming language. The last f2f interview I traveled to their facility in Irving Texas. They paid for my hotel stay and gas. I met the friend of the manager and we had informal talk about the group and what they did. I asked him question about how I could succeed with the group, etc. Then before I knew it, he started talking about bonuses and salary.

Interview Question – C/C++ programming question such as left and right shift of bits. Which has precedence over the other right shift or the and logical operator? And some compiler questions and how it handles the code.   Answer Question
