    I applied online. I interviewed at Nortel Networks (Istanbul (Turkey)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had the interview with the team lead. They asked many technical questions and my background. the interview was very positive and relaxed. However, I can not say the same thing about HR interview. They made me travel for 4 hours just for a 5 min interview and the staff was really unprofessional.

    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.

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nortel Networks in January 2010.

    Interview

    Phone interviews give the company a chance to get a feel for your skill-set, interests, desired compensation etc., and see if there is a match between their needs and your strengths. If there is enough common ground, then the phone interviews are almost always followed-up by an in-person interview. Phone interviews are generally conducted in two steps. The first step is with a recruiter in Human Resources. The second step is a technical interview, usually with one of the people you would be working with.
