Firmware Developer Interview

Firmware Developer
Richmond, BC (Canada)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sierra Wireless.

Interview Details – I had 3 in-person interviews.

First interview was with two project leads - they asked me questions about my experience, previous employment, my understanding (aka theory) of the skills required for the position.

Second interview was with two other senior level programmers involved with the project - they asked me more about my previous experience and what I enjoyed about it, where i wanted to go and what i wanted to do. If I was flexible with what I would like to do, ie would I stick to just 1 thing, or would I juggle multiple tasks

Third Interview was with HR and the two two project leads again - went more over my previous experiences and went over what the project they are working on is and what my tasks would be if I were selected.

Took roughly a month to have all 3 interviews. By my 3rd interview there were 2 other applicants.

I enjoyed the process and getting to know the people and the position for which I was applying for.

Software Test Engineer Interview

Software Test Engineer

The process took a day - interviewed at Sierra Wireless in June 2011.

Interview Details – Interview discussion for test engineer position. Interviewer was not that organized about what they were looking for and what the position would be doing. I would suggest having a phone discussion with HR before to an interview so you know what the job is about. Nothing came of the interview as I don't think they were seriously looking at filling the position.

Interview Question – How would you create a test that tested 5 years of phone calls in a single day?   Answer Question
