    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide.

    Interview

    The interview went well. The only concern was my lack of ample customer facing experience. I explained the customer experience that I had and the person taking the interview appeared content. But then again can not be sure unless we get an acceptance or offer from the company. Key thing to note to make sure that you prove the extensive experience that you have with the customer. Another thing that will definitely help is the references from other project managers.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    They were fast on getting me on site. But they did not get back to me about the result even though I asked via emails. They should be kind enough to get back to me since I spent more than 3 hours on site. Questions were mostly focusing on my soft skills like how I could handle conflicts and what is my experience about interfacing with high level managers etc..

    Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide (Plano, TX).

    Interview

    I had 2 phone interviews with mgmt and then a few on-site interviews as well. It was just a few weeks after I interviewed that I heard back with an offer. There were warning signs regarding job posting and the descriptions from the interviewers that I failed to address. This led to a position that I was not expecting nor what I was seeking. Make sure to get everything in writing if you have questions or doubts.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were straight-forward with no surprises. It was a standard uneventful interviewing process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is very little room for negotiation with Ericsson. They do not have telecommuting or alternate ways of working. Regarding salary, Ericsson is not in line with their competitors and they will tell you it is because of the 100% healthcare coverage (which they love to play up), bonuses, etc., but it is a smokes and mirrors game. If you want considerably more than what you are offered, you will not get it. Unless you are comfortable with the offered base salary amount (not the bonuses or raises), do not accept the position.

    Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide (Atlanta, GA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    1 interview with hiring manager, one with his/her boss and one with the director of operations for which you will work.
    Ericsson has a matrix structure so usually you will report to more than one manager.They do take a lot of time until they confirm your are accepted, so it takes more than 30 days to finish it or more if there are additional signatures needed.
    they need technical and financial backgrounds so be sure you mention that in your interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Give me an example of a project where you went over budget and explain how you addressed it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    not much to negotiate, they are looking for your last salary-they ask proof and they offer you about 10% more.

    An employee referred me for this position. It was a very easy and quick process, one 1:1 with the hiring manager and one meeting with the whole team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide (Atlanta, GA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Only 1 interview with 2 people in the meeting. Was fairly interactive. They were courteous and asked some good questions. Lasted about 1 hour. They were not specific on what the job was about. I think they were first trying to understand what I could contribute. What I did for the first 6 months after hire was a bit different that what I thought I was hired for, but that may have been a testing period. It would have been nice to have had more of a job description than was given.
