It was a scheduled interview. The guy was expecting the answer he knew, and not what we tell. He had least respect, and was attending the calls during the interview!

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wrocław (Poland)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wrocław (Poland)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Nokia Networks in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    No HR interview with typical questions, only an interview with four developers. This position was mainly about software design in C++, but there were no questions on software design. The interviewers seemed to be in hurry. Many questions unrelated to the position. They expect dictionary definitions as the answers.

    Time and money wasting for experienced looking for a better paid job. It takes them extremely long time to make and inform their final decision, you have to ask them for that from time to time. Rude interviewers. Unprofessional and _no_reimbursement_.

    Interview Questions
    • Testing techniques (black-box, white-box, regression, unit testing - they expect the answer from the book, not from your experience and the real-world programming), testing strategies (not assertions, mocking and so on... but answer as it is defined in one of the books they have probably read before).   Answer Question
    • Implement an algorithm to find balance point of the array. Proposed one, with average complexity of O(N-1) but it seems they were looking for another one solution (which I have found on Stackoverflow later).   Answer Question
    • What's wrong with this code (they were looking for "exact answer from the book" not what you can observe in the particular code example).   Answer Question
    • What is polymorphism (in-deep question (vtables, vptrs implementation details) with example on whiteboard, marking as virtual in base and not-marking as virtual in derived - what would happen)?   Answer Question
    • What comes along with copy-constructor? (Silly question, correct answer is assignment operator). Plus standard questions on memory leaks, mutex and semaphore, difference between stack and heap, overloading of operator new, etc. No questions on "advanced" C++ features like templates.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Nokia Networks in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Mostly candidates will be called for the Initial round after a rough sorting of resume internally. Preferences will be given for candidates with telecom background. Initial round will be telephonic which they'll primarily concentrate in determining what sort of work you are currently involved with and your proficiency in that. Then if they are satisfied, they'll ask some technical questions just to ensure you can be ramped up in their project quickly.

    Once shortlisted in the first-round, you'll be called for a F2F round where you'll be grilled on your skill set and telecom domain expertise. The interviewers mostly don't mind the relevance of experience in the domain as long the domain is telecom. Sometimes if the interviewers don't have the required expertise in a particular, another expert will be called. Its professional in that aspect.

    Then the third round is a managerial round, where the manager of the product for which you've been interviewed will have an discussion with you. This can be technical depending on the manager. But mostly its a discussion to get a feel of your expectations/attitude sort of stuff.

    If everything goes fine, HR will get in touch with you and discuss regarding compensation and will send offer letter.

    DISCLAIMER:
    This is a personal experience and should not be considered as a general format.
    Interview experiences are purely subjective.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation is a crucial part as you've wont get a proper hike for the Initial year. So discuss thoroughly with any inside sources what the current salary offered for your experience and skill set and get a acceptable package and then proceed with your negotiations. A joining bonus can also be negotiated.
