    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent (New Providence, NJ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screening in early December with a member of the IP Platforms team. After that, I was scheduled to come to the offices following the holidays. Upon coming to the offices, I went through three relatively small 1:1 interviews with an HR manager, members of the IP team, and the manager of the team. Questions ranged from personality to experience and technical skills.

    Very comforting, laid back interview; told me all about the position the first 30 minutes, questions were answered back and forth, then asked me to tell him about myself and past experiences.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent (Murray Hill, NJ).

    Interview

    I learned about the position at my on campus career fair. I handed in my resume and applied online as well.

    Was called in for a phone interview. Answered a few basic behavioral questions. About a week later they e-mailed me and asked me to come in for an on site interview.

    On site interview was more technical, a couple of behavior questions as well.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent (Murray Hill, NJ).

    Interview

    One initial introductory phone call (typical greetings, introductions, Q&A about the company) followed by two phone interviews with tests and an on-site interview.

    The tests were pretty straightforward, almost completely in C:

    45 min - The first test was very simple, multiple choice and tested more your understanding of C and bit manipulation.

    2 hours 30 min - Second test was open-ended. Again, it was all in C, but this exam had logical questions, data interpretation, and coding questions. It also had an electrical engineering problem (hardest part since I'm CS and knew nothing about it).

    On-site interview was nice. They bought lunch for the team and had to talk to each member of the team. They asked some behavioral questions, why I want to work there, and went over my resume. Only had a few technical questions -- I assumed most of the technical stuff was taken care of by the two phone interview tests. Met with some of the bosses and left on a pretty good note.

    On a side note, the whole process only took 3 (two for the tests, one for the on-site, one day) business days. It felt very rushed since they were anxious to get someone to fill the position, which is understandable but wasn't enjoyable in the least and was probably the greatest downside to the whole process. People were pretty nice, the actual workplace itself wasn't very inviting though (it was an older building with cubicles).

    Dressed business professional to the on-site, the employees were all business casual.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent (Murray Hill, NJ) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Most of the questions are about the stuff on your resume. Because I had an internship in Alcatel before, they were more interested in it and asked many questions about it. It was a basic behavioral interview. After interview, they would show you around the lab. I thought I did a good job in the interview, but I did't get the offer at last. It seemed that they cared much about your work authorization and I was just an international student with F1 visa status.

    Interview Questions

    • What programming language are you familiar with? Can you use oscilloscope?What was your duty during your last intern?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent (Murray Hill, NJ) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for job on-line. A little over a month later I got a call asking to set up an in-person interview. I met with 5 people, each for 30 minutes. The interview seemed to go fine, except they spent far more time convincing me of the benefits of the company over interviewing me. I had no direct feedback after the interview About a month after the interview I received a letter (via mail, I was impressed) indicating they hired someone else.
