Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Nokia in December 2009.

Interview Details – I sat in a room and various people came, asked questions, and left. The interview process was extremely informal, and the interviewers did not coordinate with each other between visits. I had 2 people (on the same team) ask me the same logic-puzzle-type problem.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – I accepted the entry-level offer, which they later raised by about 2k. Apparently another entry-level negotiated hard, and they wanted to keep it fair for everyone.
