    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlington, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nokia (Burlington, MA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    They contacted me after we talked briefly at a job fair. They were pleasant and after a brief conversation asked to schedule an in person interview. I drove down to their Burlington, MA location, and they saw me promptly. The interview itself was with four people; all software engineers and software architects. They asked me 4 main questions, most of which led to offshoot discussions. They started the interview off with a logic puzzle type question. After that it seemed they had a long list of questions, but they asked at what point I was at in my schooling and which classes I had taken; then asked all further questions based on my answers. i felt what they did ask was relevant to my schooling, and all of them were incredibly pleasant and helped me work through the answers when I wasn't sure.

    Interview Questions

    • The logic question at the beginning. The question was, "You're in a room with 3 switches. In the next room over are 3 lights. You can't see the lights in the next room. You can flip the switches as many times as you'd like, but you can only have one on at a time. How can you tell which light goes to which switch?"   1 Answer

    Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlington, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nokia (Burlington, MA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by five different people that would've been my peers. Except for the initial disucssion with the business manager, the interview teams seemed to lack any real training or preparation in interviewing and the questions seemed haphazard and disorganized. I felt like they were going through the motions of interviewing and that another candidate had already been picked.

    The interviewers seemed beaten, tired and lacking energy. A common question that was asked was about how I handled conflict management.

    I got a bad feeling about the Nokia given the low energy of the group, and the common question about conflict management.

    Principal/Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burlington, MA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Nokia (Burlington, MA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Initial phone screens consisted of general review of past projects, technologies, etc. that seemed related to the job description. Followed up with in-person interview with two different groups and two different interviewing styles.

    The first group was much more data structure and algorithm oriented. Big "O" questions, recursive algorithms, tree search (depth and breadth) , etc. done at the whiteboard. Professional but adversarial feel to these interviews.

    The second group was much more "experience" oriented. Concentrated on the what/how/why questions of previous projects. Still did some whiteboard work, but mostly for design/implementation diagrams. Professional and much less adversarial than former group. Got the feeling they were much more interested in hiring smart people that could adapt to change.

    Interview Questions

    • Write recursive breath and depth tree listing methods. Constraints were no use of explicit arrays, queues, etc.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate because the salary and work environment was better than previous position. I took the job with the second group basically because of the group dynamics.
