    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nortel Networks (Richardson, TX) in June 2007.

    Interview

    Interviewed over the phone only but this is not the typical process. Normally candidates interview with one or two of the inside sales managers and then the sales director. My interview went extremely well and I did not find it in anyway challenging. I was hired the next week. This company was the best company to work for with regard to the friendly people, all of the groups and activities they sponsor and the great benefits they offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nortel Networks (Raleigh, NC) in April 2007.

    Interview

    Asked me if I had good MS Excel skills and if I was good at number crunching. They seemed to be on the verge of making an offer but asked me my salary requirements. I told them I was not sure of the range and that I would be willing to negotiate but they still asked for a number. I told them a range and again said that I was negotiable. I never heard back from them after that.

    Interview

    I had the interview with the team lead. They asked many technical questions and my background. the interview was very positive and relaxed.

    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.
