    Big Data Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Huawei Technologies.

    Interview

    Recruiter on LinkedIn reached out to me and set OA (I missed it), IQ test before interview.

    Phone screen interview with a senior engineer for an hour. He only asked questions towards resume, no tech or coding problem. The interviewer seems not very active in this process, and the questions are not very valuable from my perspective. There were long pauses between questions. Btw they required screen share, but nothing for coding.

    Analog IC Engineer Interview

    Interview

    So, I applied through their website, which was primarily focussed on recruitment for overseas students. I filled the complete application and applied for 2-3 positions , analog IC engineer being my top priority. I got an email after 2weeks (approx) after filling the online application and was called for the interview in Shenzhen , China . The email stated that the position is for *IC and Device Engineer* and I assumed it that it must be analog IC Design . I went for the interview and the first question asked me was about Digital (VHDL) . When I told the interviewee that I filled the application for analog and not digital, he told me that he is from Digital domain and the analog expertise has went back to the company.

    He called him on phone and was advised by him to proceed with my interview. Keeping in mind that the engineer interviewing me is not from analog domain, I tried to explain my masters degree project in very simple terms , which he was quite happy about ( I suppose) and told me that I seem to have a good analog knowledge and he would ask his analog department colleague to arrange interview in the company. I never received the call thereafter and after a follow up with HR on email, I was told there was no other interview for me. The next day, my application portal showed that *interview failed*.

    For a company like Huawei, it is important to conduct things in a disciplined manner, have their engineers ready from every domain at the time of interview. It might be a mere single rejection from their end, but it costs very heavy for the time and patience of a candidate .

    Senior Security Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Huawei Technologies.

    Interview

    Three interviews: one with a senior from leadership and an IC, the second with my manager and peer and the third one which is the "bosses interview".

    HR rules over any department in the company in China. Even if the team really wants to hire you, if they can pay someone else another candidate half the salary the industry proves that you demand, they will. HR only cares about "filling the position", not acquiring talent. I imagine this formula is going to make them struggle for a long time to grow as a company and it's very unfortunate for the company and especially candidates who go beyond expectations to work with them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Huawei Technologies (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First round, second round and third round happened in one day. with an accounting manager at the first round, business associate at the second round, and a dinner with partners at third round. They basically interviewed every student that sent in their resume, so the schedule for interviewing everyone of them was a little bit messed up. Student for 10AM was pushed to 11AM, and student for 11AM was sent for the afternoon. And they only had a few interviewers, so in the afternoon they were pretty tired and only skimmed at your resume without listening to your story. Weirdly, at the second round, they asked very personal questions regarding your family.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Huawei Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The entire interview process consisted of my preparing and giving a technical talk. They told me to prepare a talk on technical issues that I had worked on for previous companies. I delivered the talk and answered questions. I finished a little early, so they then asked me if I had prepared extra material on other topics. I told them no... I had done exactly as they had requested.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no one-on-one interviews, just the group meeting in which I gave the talk. They asked technical questions on the material I presented.   1 Answer
