    Software Engineer () Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nortel Networks (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Very pleasant on the phone, asked behavioural and technical questions mostly. Friendly and warm manager. Was very focused on integrity rather than your results. I think I did well, because I was honest even though some of the answers were displaying the best of my ability. And taking on responsibilities instead of blaming problem on my teammate.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: What is your final year project about and was there any difficulties?
      Q: Who was responsible for the problem (above)?
