Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Tieto.

Interview Details – Interview was scheduled I got details via phone and also on email, It was held as planned, They had told it would take half a day to complete entire process including interviews - one technical , one PI and one HR and they did it, I went in morning at 9:30 and went back home with offer at 1:30 pm, Really liked the efficiency of time they conducted the entire process

There was one online round with c# questions, It was quite new so found it difficult, If you have not practiced such stuff before its difficult to clear but all depends on your knowledge, Technical Interview was good not much questions But was good, Personal Interview there were some puzzles asked which I answered after thinking for some time - but it was told its ok even if its not answered, But overall it was good fast

Negotiation Details – There were hardly any negotiations, I had to change so I did not negotiate much

Database Administrator Interview

Database Administrator
Pune (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Tieto in July 2011.

Interview Details – Technical and Personal Interview discussion was good. However, salary negotiation was not good and persons got trapped in final HR round. HR is meant for that only here.
When there is a need of good peoples from market then, recruiters are in hurry however, when we need a help from them after joining then, we did not get :(

Interview Question – Online Test being carried out before the technical round   Answer Question

Technical Consultant Interview

Technical Consultant
Riga (Latvia)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Tieto in September 2011.

Interview Details – There was just one interview face-to-face. HR specialist asked me common questions (incl. salary expectations), but in very polite way, trying avoid common forms of those questions. Checked english knowledge too (just asked tell about myself). Technical interview was VERY short, no stupid question, no writing algorithms on paper; then I performed a test (SQL, PL/SQL). It was less than two hours for everything, that was very good, because I came from another town to this interview.

SAP Consultant Interview

SAP Consultant

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Tieto.

Interview Details – Interview at Tieto office, hiring manager asked really a lot of standard interview questions "what is your motivations, what is your strengths and weakness etc.". Interviewer didn't rise eyes from a computer most of the time and read all the questions from a list. Very little asked personally.
Besides, I got also questions what should not be asked - current salary and family situation.
No reasons for rejection were given and hiring manager didn't reply to an email when I asked.

Interview Question – A lot of very standard questions related to personality. if you aim to pass that kind of interview, you can learn how to answer all of them.   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Mumbai (India)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Tieto in February 2011.

Interview Details – If you go through a referal or through the job sites you get a direct call or mail from the comapny HR regarding the place and time of interview. If its in Pune then it is at the EON office, where you have to first go thru a computer based technical test than the technical interview with the manager and then PI. The interview if easy of you have the skills and right attitude.

Senior Sales Manager Interview

Senior Sales Manager
Helsinki, Southern Finland (Finland)

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Tieto in February 2010.

Interview Details – Interview with the team lead and one line manager and then 2 phone interviews with another line manager who was based abroad.

Interview Question – The managers in India do a lot of interviewing & attend courses so they try to probe whether you are fluffing your skills out. "What do you do in your time?" "Ok, how often?" as a way to see if you really actually do it. They asked a lot about business case experience too.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was little as they said these are the pay grades we have and with your experience it's company policy to be at this level. I can't complain about the salary though. In the end the team head fought with HR to get me more and later on to make sure i got a bonus they didn't want to pay me, so it is hard to complain.
