    The process took a dayinterviewed at Tekelec in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Had 1:1 interviews with 2 engineers, 2 team leads, and a manager. The first interviewer drew out a network diagram of how the EAGLE works, indicating that it was just for overview, then erased it. 3 people later, the interviewer asked me to redraw the diagram from memory. Other questions were heavy on telecom process and QA testing methodologies.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Tekelec in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    Three to five individuals, from the hiring team, will interview each new applicant. The team fit is crucial. Technical competency is second, as the software/hardware is proprietary and will require train-up for each position. Hopeful candidate follow-up is extremely helpful. Typically, "Homework" is assigned after interview, to determine communication skills and attention to detail, when analyzing and reviewing an industry topic.

    Interview Questions
    • Based on your limited understanding of the proprietary product, without knowing the details, explain to the client, why the product failed, and how you plan to insure that it will not happen again. What efforts (read - plan/processes) do you have in place to resolve our issue.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Salary was negotiable, within a 3-5K band. No negotiation on vacation. No negotiation on company vehicle.
