    Technical Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Calabasas, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    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.
