    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide (Dallas, TX) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiter followed by a SKYPE interview with hiring manager and another Director. Followed by two more separate SKYPE interviews with VP of HR and VP of Supply Chain as most of the leaders are usually travelling or based out of Sweden.

    Recruiter was very helpful and extremely responsive for all interview related questions. THUMBS UP. Overall a fairly lengthy interview not so hard to crack.
