Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer
Wrocław (Poland)

I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Nokia Networks in January 2013.

Interview Details – First call with simple talk about availability and salary expectations (no range specified by employer).

Second teleconference interview with questions related to:
-software development process
-white/black box testing
-network protocols
-quality assurance
-OSI Layers

Despite the fact I've applied for System Engineer position, at the beginning of interview they told me it is Software Integration / Verification interview.
I've had impression that employer is looking to hire person with exact employer specific knowledge and/or exact book definitions are needed. However, none of this was listed as experience needed in the job post.
