Solution Engineer Interview

Solution Engineer
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Nokia Networks in August 2010.

Interview Details – Initially have to go through aptitude test- which was a bit easy as compared to wipro and TCS, then they take GD in a group of 10- with almost 300 people competing, then had to go through the 2 rounds of technical interview, then HR interview. For experienced candidates the interview processis simple-only one round of technical interview which may last for and hour or two, then an HR interview round.

Test Engineer Interview

Test Engineer
Kraków (Poland)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Nokia Networks in April 2013.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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.

Test Engineer and Integration & Verification Engineer Interview

Test Engineer and Integration & Verification Engineer
Wrocław (Poland)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nokia Networks in July 2013.

Interview Details – I was expected to be interviewed for I&V Engineer as it was discussed with the HR Lady. When I arrived to the company I was informed that I will be interviewed to 3-5 teams by quite many people. Fortunately there were 4 of them only and only 3 different teams. They came to intervie me even after I told to HR, that I'm not interested to work in their departments and with their technologies. This was pretty confusing and I should quit the interview immediately. Unfortuately I stayed. I was asked questions related to different fields and topics. I got the feeling that I'm in some quiz show and started looking for hidden cam. The whole process was odd. I just stopped answering questions and stopped discussing. Just wanted to finish the interview and go home. I know that I failed it, however I've got the information that even if they not decide to employ me, they will let me know about that in 2 weeks. They didn't sent any information. And after a month I've got questionaire from NSN to give them feedback about the process. And that was the only positive thing. I wanted to learn something.
I was working for NSN previously and was headhunted for the interview I'm describing. They've just reminded me why I left them. They are treating people like kids in primary school.

Interview Question – none, the problem was that they were shooting questions related to completely different things. The questoins weren't even related to each other.   Answer Question
