    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Tellabs (Naperville, IL) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Interview process mainly consisted of detailed phone interviews with hiring manager (~90 minutes), two group peers (~ 30 minutes each), and one related sales colleague (~ 30 minutes). In addition, one casual 30 minute face to face "discussion" in a lab with one of the phone interview peers. Follow-up and next steps were not always clear or consistent with what was told.

    Interview Questions

    • Trying to solicit ideas on how to manage and influence a very difficult product organization that up to that point, was not giving much attention or priority to the market region I would be supporting.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Brief. HR recruiter provided little in terms of status or details throughout the process until offer was finally agreed and presented via phone about six weeks after process had started. Discussion lasted ~ 20 minutes to hash out final pay, start date and other assorted details. All requests were agreed to.
