Systems Design Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview


I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NEC (Japan) (Melbourne (Australia)) in November 2011.


Interview consists of:

An initial conversation (phone + email) to double check on the interest and inform about the position, details and requirement.

A short phone interview to double check on the background and skills

A three hours technical test: Communication/System design, programming and software design, maths and statistic. One hour each

A 1.5 hours teleconference interview with one manager and one senior engineer: behavioral questions 1/2 hour, technical questions 30 mins and past projects 30 mins

On site interview with HR, departmental manager, team leader and manager and a senior engineer: behavioral and scenario (1 hour), technical and problem solving questions (~ 2 hours).

Interview Questions

  • List past telecom projects and describe them   Answer Question
  • Simple puzzle on a team working on two areas, one of double size compared to the other. Team is divided into two areas and work for half a day. For the second half of that day, team is merged to work in the big room. They finish the bigger area within that day. One team member needs to come back to complete the work in the other room the next day. It takes the whole day.

    How many people in the team?   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

Got initial offer via phone before doing final personality check to allocate manager/team leader and final check from referee but
- lower salary package compare to other offer
- looking for long term career development
