Network Engineer Interview

Network Engineer
Lisbon (Portugal)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Nokia Solutions and Networks in January 2012.

Interview Details – Online application with recruiter, got contacted by phone, did phone interview, which was mostly useless, as recruiter data was inaccurate/just generic/trying to find a candidate ASAP, and scheduled interview with client in matter of days. Did 1:1 interview, detailed explanation of operations and braking down of different expected job roles. Also was informed that the horizontal progression is not common or encouraged.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Low salary

Solution Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Tokyo (Japan)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Nokia Solutions and Networks in April 2010.

Interview Details – Had 2 rounds of interviews- initially with hiring manager, then with director. Finally had a chat session with the CEO. Salary was negotiated through agent. It was a headhunting offer from ALU. The base at ALU was considered as the BASE.

Interview Question – Nothing in particular   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Handled by agent. But, after accepting the offer, I had the feeling that the agent worked more for NSN than for me. So, there was no need for me to be less aggressive in terms of numbers, specially since it was a headhunting offer.

Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Alfragide (Portugal)

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Nokia Solutions and Networks.

Interview Details – 1st Interview. As I was recommended by an university colleague the process was soft.
I'd an easy interview. Just some questions about career perspective, university works and UMTS network topology.

Interview Question – Describe some UMTS network elements functions. Questions about Rhapsody and Clearcase tools.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – take care about the work hours and working entry hours because they trick young people to accept to work in prevention sometimes and then after they are admitted they start to work in turns of 24/7.
