    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent.

    Interview

    A Phone screen directly with a person of the Team.
    I was asked various questions regarding life of a TCP/IP packet. Each answer lead to several different questions that took a deeper dive into OSI Layers 2,3 and 4. The interviewer was a bit arrogant about the knowledge he had and he purposefully led me towards the incorrect answers and I came back refuting most of his comments with the correct answer (incorrect in his opinion). Sometimes he was just plain rude.

    I did not go through to the next round because I did not clear this interview for obvious reasons

    • Explain the packet communication between client and a Server with 2 hops in the middle.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent.

    Interview

    It's a co-op position. I submitted a resume through university co-op network and several days late, I received a phone interview by a technical engineer in Alcatel Lucent. Not difficult. It's an easy interview and more about some basic networking knowledge. But after this interview, I got nothing not even a reject email. That's strange.
