Interim Software Engineer Interview

Interim Software Engineer
Bridgewater, NJ

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Qualcomm in December 2013.

Interview Details – I got an email from the HR about my shortlisting and She asked me to schedule 2 technical interviews in December 2013. The first interview was basically what was there on my resume. The Interviewer asked general stuff about LTE/ UMTS call flow, Handoff scenarios and O&M and about the 3G/4G gateway product.
He asked me about my previous experience and few questions on that. Then a brief discussion on my courses. Overall it was an interactive and decent interview. Not very challenging.

Interview Question – All questions were simple enough like LTE Handoff scenarios etc. Nothing unexpected.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much Negotiation. I was hired for a specific position in the small cells team. So not much negotiation was possible.
