    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Carrier iQ in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very interesting interview as it began with a take-home exam that had to be submitted the next 1-2 days. It had about 10 questions. Some of the questions were open ended and some others were technical text book type questions. The beauty of the questions were that you couldn't just google search the answers; you had to have real world hands-on experience to answer those questions. If you couldn't answer most of them without help then you know this job is not for you.

    Phone interviews consisted on mostly customer engagement type questions - project deployment, management, team interaction and interpersonal skills. Some other questions were about problem solving where I was asked examples of problems that I solved and diffusing tough situations. The phone interview had to be rescheduled a few times as the interviewer didn't have time to conduct the interview :) He was able to call me from the airport one time.

    On-site interview was chaotic as the original schedule kept getting shuffled as the interviewers kept getting pulled into meetings and other tasks. The interviewers were quite nice and courteous. They didn't focus much on technical skills but more on my experience. They took me out to lunch and grilled me during the lunch as well.

    Originally they didn't give me an offer but 3 months later the offer came.
