    CPU Micro-architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Huawei Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It was a quick process. Phone interview was more of a discussion as what I do @my current position and giving me a background about what Huawei is doing. The onsite was OK, few technical questions, some part convincing me that Huawei is a good company and a short discussion about my current compensation, and a short discussion with department VP. Everything went well. Few days after interview, I was scheduled another phone interview with Huawei VP in the US. Few days after all interviews, I was contacted by a recruiter to discuss an offer, he wanted to understand my current compensation to get an offer together. This was the 3rd time someone from Huawei asked me about my salary. Anyway, few days passed and another phone discussion with the recruiter asking one more time about my salary (4th time). He eventually told me Huawei cannot compete with my current salary so we ended our conversation with no result. I think Huawei wasted my time because from the beginning they had a good idea about my salary, yet they invited me for an interview, given that they could not compete with my current compensation. It is not acceptable to me. Hiring top talent has some cost and before wasting time, please make sure you can afford it.

    Staff Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Huawei Technologies (Seattle, WA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process consists of one telephonic interview followed by meeting five people onsite including the hiring manager. Typically the recruiter first calls up the candidate and gives a brief introduction about the company. The onsite people interviewing are very technical and came across as very pleasant and friendly.

    Huawei made an offer and then tried the tactic of bait and switch, going back and forth tried to lower the compensation and job title and then tried to hire me as a contractor. The company lacks ethics and constantly was trying to get to low ball me to save money. Very unprofessional HR and bad ethics. They also have history of stealing products of other companies and building their own on the basis of that. One example is that they stole Cisco router code and started packaging as their own and sold it in south east Asia market. They have a judgement against them out here in United States too.
