    Cost and Progress Manager Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nokia (Irving, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    A very long interview process, two interviewers, one on the phone, one in person in the room. But the interview process is for legal purposes, for HR reasons. The management already picked out the hiring candidate, prior to all interviews was started.

    Interview Questions

    • Very tough questions to be faced with   1 Answer

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Nokia.

    Interview

    Process started as with any company basic screening by Human Resources. Deeper dive around key responsibilities for the position covered in secondary interviews with two separate potential peers. Direct and level up management interviews followed. Offer presented by HR 3 days after final interview with no negotiation possible.

    Interview Questions

    • How will you solve X problem. While some basic information was presented for the current challenge, it was in broad strokes that were too open to draw a specific course of action. When asking for additional information none was available.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nokia.

    Interview

    You will talk to HR and then later to a hiring manager. The interview will be drastically different based on the position and the hiring manager. Personality and past experience will be most important factors. I havent heard of any sort of testing but possibly for a developer type position.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nokia in January 2014.

    Interview

    Initial Phone Screen: 2 weeks after application submitted
    Phone Interview with would-be supervisor
    Onsite Interview: with four senior managers

    Follow-up: None. No email, phone call, or contact after in-person interview. No reimbursement for expenses incurred to travel and stay for onsite interview ($400+).

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected Dialogue: Despite having gone through two phone screenings where I was told that my qualifications were extremely unique and very well-suited to the position, one of the senior managers interviewing me onsite used the interview time to tell me that I was not qualified for the position and accused me of lying on my resume. Additionally, he argued with me over each answer I gave to a question, even if the question/answer was opinion-based. (Example: Name a product you love and an improvement you'd make right away. When I answered, I was told that my "improvement" was wrong even though the interviewer had not heard of the product in my example.)

      Unexpected Administrative Behavior: When the onsite interview was set-up, I was told that I'd be required to pay for my travel expenses and hotel up-front and that during my onsite interview, I'd be given reimbursement forms to fill-out and submit.
           *No forms were issued during my interview, so I had to follow-up with an email request.
           *I submitted the forms to the HR Assistant who set-up the onsite interview.
           *When I did not hear back from the HR Assistant or receive a reimbursement check after several weeks, I emailed to check on the status. Email bounced back, "user unknown".
           *When I emailed the HR Lead to check on the reimbursement status after email bounce-back, I received no response.
           *I still have not received a reimbursement check (over 2 months since onsite interview).
