    Demand Planning Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide (Plano, TX).

    Interview

    I was scheduled near end of day. One of the interviewers was slightly late and seemed to be on a tight schedule. Interview was a semi-formal "get to know you" conversation. The interviewers were very friendly, casual, and attentive to what I had to say about myself.

    We basically discussed my resume, skills, and academic projects. One interviewer said that I would easily be able to handle the responsibilities of the position, but I suspected that they had spoken to a lot of candidates and already had one or a few in mind to advance.

    Permit Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide (Sunnyvale, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    You have to go through a recruiter. Face-to-face in Sunnyvale. No feedback whatsoever after the interview. Recruiter didn't know what job I'd be interviewing for so it was difficult to be prepared.

    Interview Questions

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide (Tampa, FL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    TLDR: Terrible interview experience. Insulted at every turn. I will never work for Ericsson and will warn others away. If the interview is indicative of the work environment, it is a toxic place to work.

    I was interviewed by one of their interns from the previous year and never talked to an actual manager (which I consider unprofessional and ill-advised, strike one).

    The first thing she says on seeing my GPA is a shocked "That's your GPA, why is it so low?" I was taken aback since my gpa (3.3) isn't stellar but I didn't think it was that bad. So I figure it's a stress test and try to answer as professionally as possible.

    Then we talk about my technical skills and past projects, during which I tell her that I don't really know ANY scripting languages. I can read a program, but I couldn't do anything from scratch. I then get asked how I would approach a problem in a scripting language. But I already said I don't know scripting languages. Why didn't she ask me about a language that I claimed to actually know?

    I was given a practice problem and the interviewer refused to answer any clarifying questions I had. It was a simple problem, combine two integer arrays so that the numbers are interleaved. When I was done she said it was wrong. I asked why, she ignored my question.

    The thing that left me with a truly bad impression was meeting the hiring manager. The lady I'm interviewing with takes me to see him, and in front of me says "She has no technical skills, but a bit of leadership experience, what do you want me to do with her?" I understand if she didn't like my technical skills but why make a production of taking me to the hiring manager instead of just thanking me for my time and saying bye.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide.

    Interview

    I applied online after noticing an online advertisement for the position. The HR rep contacted me within a few days for a brief interview over the phone. He then stated he would have an HR coordinator contact me to arrange an in-person interview. The coordinator contacted and asked for my availability and proposed a few dates. I agreed to all dates proposed and stated I would be happy to accommodate with regard to the time of day. However, the in-person meeting has yet to be confirmed all the dates have passed. I was told the people conducting the interviews have a "full schedule" and I will be notified when they become available.
