    Communications Specialist Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nortel Networks (Research Triangle Park, NC).

    Interview

    I was first emailed for writing samples and then completed a telephone interview with my soon-to-be supervisor. I was then asked in for an in-person interview with members of the team I'd be joining.
    The people interviewing me were most concerned I'd fit the dynamic of the team they had in place so it was difficult to know what skills and specialties to share that would or would not fit the space they had available.
    Other questions were typical: describe a situation where you overcame difficulties, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked for my perception of the company's current difficulties, which included preparing to declare bankruptcy. As a comms person, discussing these issues in a delicate but accurate manner was important for the job.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was offered more than I'd ever made before and accepted eagerly.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Nortel Networks (Santa Cruz, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    People I met during the interview process were really helpful. Scheduling interviews was easy as the employees displayed a lot of flexibility. They were looking for someone who is motivated to work for the company and fluent in Network protocols they support. In the end, I was probably not Senior enough for the job.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot of BGP questions, some of which were difficult. Some of the more obscure commands also came-up and caught me off guard.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Nortel Networks (Research Triangle Park, NC) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Since I transfered from one division of Nortel Networks (Carrier) to another division of Nortel Networks (Enterprise) this was an internal move with verly few interviews involved. The whole process was very relaxed and informal, but perhaps this was because I have worked for the Enterprise division previously. Not written job description was provided so it was hard to know if you were meeting your targets.

    Interview Questions

    • How well do you know the Enterprise product line?   Answer Question
    • Are you willing to take on more product resposibility if required?   Answer Question
