Research and Development Engineer Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nokia in March 2018.

Interview

Everything happened in the same day: written exam, technical interview, behavioral interview. The written exam runs for 2 hours and is fairly easy. Average programmers can finish the exam in 30 minutes or less. The technical interview is just the same with the written exam and you are given 15 minutes to come up with a solution. The behavioral interview contains questions about your experiences with certain scenarios. The evaluation process is very fast that I got a call during the night of the same day saying that I passed all the interview and I was expected to be onsite the next day.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nokia (Quezon City, National Capital Region (Philippines)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Several machine problems followed by a technical and behavioral interview. It seems that goal of the technical interview is to see how you think and solve problems; there's more focus on how you come up with the solution compared to the solution itself.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nokia (Quezon City, National Capital Region (Philippines)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It started by taking a technical exam. The following week, you are expected to appear in a technical interview with the manager. When I arrived for the technical interview, my employer was 35 mins late. The last interview will be about your behavior. I answered the questions very well since most of the questions are easy. The manager said that I should expect a call the following week. 2 weeks have past and not a single call/email update has reached me. I tried to contact the HR but there was no response. So I asked a favor from one of my friends working there to have an update to my job application status. It turned out that I was not chosen over others. I wasted my time waiting. Some of my friends working there also said that most of the time, the HR there are INEFFICIENT.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Process only took a day and you'll know right on what your status is. Screening exams gets all of the competent coders while the technical interview gets the adept ones (OOP). Then they'll screen for the honest and non-arrogant ones. They will tell you exactly what you are getting yourself into so that you can be aware if this is what you really want. Of all the hiring process I went through, this may not be the toughest but definitely is the most serious and very professionally planned screening. Unfortunately, I didn't get an offer.
