    Duales Studium Wirtschaftsingenieurswesen Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stuttgart (Germany)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nokia (Stuttgart (Germany)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Nach einem Test wurden fünf von zehn Bewerbern ins Assessment Center eingeladen. Wir mussten ohne Vorbereitungszeit eine Gruppendiskussion und eine Aufgabe durchführen. Anschließend wurden wir in einzelne Gespräche geholt, wobei nur zwei gleichzeitig stattfanden und so der Rest warten musste. Die Gespräche dauerten zwischen 50min bis zu 1h 10min. Am Ende saß also die letzte Kandidatin zwei Stunde nur zum Warten da.
    Die Gesprächsatmosphäre selbst war sehr negativ. Es gab zwei Interviewer nach dem Motto "guter Cop, böser Cop", wobei die freundlich lächelnde Frau nichts gesagt hat und nur geschrieben hat, der stets kritisch schauende Interviewer hingegen hauptsächlich Fangfragen stellte. Man hatte nicht das Gefühl, dass tatsächliches Interesse am Bewerber besteht.

    Das Gespräch begann mit einer Selbstpräsentation die man kurz vorbereiten durfte. Nachdem ich diese vorgetragen hatte, wurden mir Fragen gestellt, die ich mit dieser eigentlich schon beantwortet hatte. Sehr unprofessionelle Gesprächsführung!

    Interview Questions

    • Assessment Center:
      - Gruppendiskussion: Wie bewerten wir die aktuellen Kommunikationsmöglichkeiten
      - Gruppenaufgabe: Einen Prototyp für ein neues kommunikationsgerät entwickeln

      Gespräch:
      - zuerst vorbereiten einer Selbstpräsentation
      - erste Frage: Was würde ein Freund über mich sagen, wenn ich ihn mitgebracht hätte
      - warum ich diesen Studiengang studieren möchte
      - warum bei Nokia
      - was macht Nokia so attraktiv (außer Internationalität und gute Ausbildungsmöglichkeiten)
      - welche Produkte stellt Nokia her
      - wie würde ich meiner Oma erklären, was Nokia macht
      - was fiel mir schwer in der Schule
      - wie habe ich gelernt, in Gruppen oder einzeln?
      - bin ich eher der Typ er Aufgaben delegiert oder der die Aufgaben erledigt / bzw bin ich derjenige der Gruppen bildet mit Leuten die Spezialisten sind auf dem Gebiet oder bin ich jemand der sich in ein Thema reinarbeitet
      - meine Schwächen und Stärken
      - ob ich den Job auch annehmen würde, wenn ich ihn an einem anderen Standort bekomme

      - auch fiese Fragen wie "Was sagen Sie zu Ihrem Schnitt, bei 2,0 ärgert man sich doch schon, dass man nicht eine eins vorne hat"
      - oder dass man mit dem Beruf eigentlich nicht wirklich weit kommt beim Unternehmen (reines Testen der Reaktion)

      - keine einzige Frage zu meinem Lebenslauf   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Nokia (São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)) in June 2009.

    After an internet application which included a few profile questions, I got a call for face-to-face interview with the head of the area.The interview was very detailed and lasted about an hour and a half. Some questions explored my previous experience focusing on challenges overcome and results attained, while others were more the "what-if" kind, presenting hypothetical situations within the context of the company and job in point for me to develop a strategy, sketch an action plan, prioritize etc. There were also behavioral questions, mainly to evaluate my ability to manage and deal with people.
