    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent.

    Interview

    This was for an internship position. I found the interview to be very straightforward. It was a phone interview(30 mins long) and consisted primarily of questions regarding my past projects(from my resume) and an internship that I had just completed. I was asked almost exclusively about my past internship and what I did there/responsibilities there. The only technical question asked was "Describe inheritance in regards to OOP". At this time I do not have an offer but was told that there would be further correspondence once all candidates were interviewed.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent (Ottawa, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Interviews are pretty difficult. A phone interview and one interview with a senior member of the team. Then up to 5 various team members grill for nearly a full day on various technical and cultural details. Mostly they are looking to determine if you understand the concepts and are willing / able to learn.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really unexpected. Questions regarding past experiences in the field and details to ensure that you understand what you were doing in depth.   Answer Question

    The interview consisted of a phone interview with two guys on the other end. It was basically all behaviour questions with some scenario questions with no technical stuff at all. Overall it was very easy I think they might just be desperate lol.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent (Timişoara (Romania)) in June 2012.

    Interview

    quite a long process: 2 discussions with the hiring manager, 2 with HR (out of which one included an English and IQ test) and 1 technical test.
    The English test was rather easy, the IQ test was Raven's Progressive Matrices, the technical one had 3 parts: 1 for telecom (2G/3G/4G), one for IP (OSI layers, routing explanations, etc.) and one for Unix.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent in May 2010.

    Interview

    1 Phone interview by the hiring/team manager followed by
    7 onsite interviews.
    Phone intvw consisted of basic networking knowledge, scripting skills(how can you find a pattern like a ip address in a router table file) and general questions on interest for position.
    On site was very casual atmosphere , friendly people and extensive grilling on lower level network protocols.

    Only one coding question to reverse a linked list. Rest Complete theory.
    They flew me in to calif and took care of stay and reimbursed ground transportation.
    Funny thing was I paid for my lunch interview(beats me!) in the nearby subway.

    Overall a positive experience. Focus should be on lower level network protocol theory was the impression that I got.
