Senior Engineer Interview

Senior Engineer
Bern (Switzerland)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Swisscom in February 2013.

Interview Details – The interview process was standard, had 2 interviews over skype and tow on site (different days) with several managers and engineers. Unfortunately the companies was quite disorganized even the job tile was not the same like in the job ad. I had tow pair programming interviews without getting any info about them in advance, even thought I asked the recruiter. I got not reject or accept after the second interviews, just a short call the next day that they need more time to interview other people. I checked with him after 2 weeks and the state was the same. No feedback after more than 2 moths.

Interview Question – How you can contribute to actual Swisscom's products.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Swisscom in October 2008.

Interview Details – A former coworker refereed me. I was called and we agreed to an interview.

Some days later: Meetings with 3 managers and a person from HR. Interview was in English at the beginning. Later we changed to German. It was very relaxing. They presented the organization plan and after that the job.

Interview Question – No tricky questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was asked for my expected salary. I gave them the number and they accepted.
However, later at HR they were including bonus in the number, where I hav given the number without bonus. A phonecall and 5 minutes later, I had what I wanted.
What I did not know was they they were in a tight spot and desperate...
