    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nokia.

    Interview

    The recruiter for the position contacted me for a quick chat on my experiences and to describe the role to me. She shared her notes with the manager, who then set up another phone call with me to talk more about the job and my experience. The process was pretty quick, from the initial contact to a time the offer was made was approximately 2-3 weeks.

    Technical Graphic Designer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nokia (Calabasas, CA).

    Interview

    1-hour meeting with the eventual manager and her assistant in a large board room. Fairly relaxed and was very conversational. Since the lead was through a staffing agency that pre-screens people before submissions I felt this was more of a conversation to gauge my personality. Her dept was small so personality mattered.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of questions about computer technical skills and attitude regarding graphic details. Some questions regarding work style and personal management style.   1 Answer

    C++ Developer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Nokia (New York, NY).

    Interview

    There was an introduction describing the project, it's goals and working environment.
    After that there was the technical part that consisted of basic questions regarding OOP in C++ and STL. There were also lower level questions related to C++ standards rationales or details related to CPU architecture and some pitfalls. There were no questions chcking the way of thinking, algorythmic or analytical skills, orientation in design patterns and OOP practices. Nothing about modern good programming methodologies/practices as well.
    At the end there was a time for interviewee questions that were answered with details and engagement. It appears they do want to apply recommended pracices (for example TDD, pair programming) but don't have people with such experience.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nokia in January 2017.

    First I got a programming challenge in an email which I was supposed to submit within 2 hours from when I got the email. After submitting the challenge response, I got another round schedule in an email in about one and a half week.

    In the second round(which was telephonic), I went through mu resume. Then I was asked explanation and assumptions of the code I submitted in the earlier round. I then was asked about my previous industrial experience and challenges I faced during that.

    After the telephonic round, I was waiting for about two months for the response. Right after two exact months, I got the offer for the position.
