    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Nokia (Budapest (Hungary)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Long and arduous. The whole process took about 4 months. Had to submit my CV (they specifically asked for a EuroPass CV - to this date this is the only company that's ever required one) and a cover letter. I was contacted shortly after and asked to submit a short essay on a predetermined topic. After that I was invited to a panel interview and had a test afterwards. I got a second round after that and they called me in a third time for an offer.
    The entire process took about 4 months, during which the date of the reply was always postponed - I almost gave up on it when they called me in for an offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    It's a combination of a technical and behavioral interview. Questions were appropriate for the nature of the role. Both the hiring manager and HR specialist were very accommodating and they'd bring out the real answers from you.

    I first worked as a subcontractor. Then applied for the job internally, was interviewed by my then current and future boss and went through a psychological test. The test was typical asking the same questions many times using different words. I got the result 'possible'.

    Nothing. But the salary was better than before

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nokia (Budapest (Hungary)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Firstly, I had to send my CV and an essay in English (they said it could be as long as i wanted it to be). The topic of the essay: Importance of knowledge gained from books vs experience gained while working. After that I was called in for a test (90 min). Test tasks: 1. Write an average manual for a mobile to update the contact list. 2. Rewrite a 2 paragraphs of network architecture manual into a more user freindly form. 3. Reading comprehension task with six questions based on a PDF on network architecture and processes.
    The test was done on an older laptop with a smaller screen and without a mouse, which was a bit surprising and fairly hindering. They said I will be notified in two weeks time or if not I can write them an email.

    Interview Questions

    • The IT text I had to rewrite was quite "hardcore" compared to the fact that they did not require IT experience.   Answer Question
