    Communications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    Business Line Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nortel Networks (Raleigh, NC) in April 2007.

    Interview

    Asked me if I had good MS Excel skills and if I was good at number crunching. They seemed to be on the verge of making an offer but asked me my salary requirements. I told them I was not sure of the range and that I would be willing to negotiate but they still asked for a number. I told them a range and again said that I was negotiable. I never heard back from them after that.
