    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sonova (Stäfa (Switzerland)).

    Interview

    First interview was over Skype with the team-leader/manager.
    One month later, on-site interview (case study) with the team-leader, the team, the line manager and finally the HR
    Two weeks after an offer was made.

    In overall, very respectful, relaxed and professional interviews, a nice team spirit with assessment of the soft-skills.

    Interview Questions

    • First Interview: OOP in C++/C, race conditions, and other technical questions. It seems what they care abut is how you analyse and depict the the problem more than if you get THE absolute correct answer.
      Second interview: technical case study, system design of a particular scenario where requirements are given. A very nice way to assess ones problem-solving and analytical skills besides his technical knowledge. the technical session ended with presentation in front of the team and the line manager.
      Afterwards, an interview with the HR, with questions of the type:
      - Why Sonova?
      - Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
      - Describe yourself in 3 words?
      - Some other CV-related stuff.   Answer Question
