    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Nokia Networks (Irving, TX (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Got called to setup a face-to-face interview after meeting with some recruiters at a university career fair two months earlier and submitting an application online.

    Interview was 3-to-1, fairly easy behaviorial questions (there aren't any technical), the atmosphere was calm and the interviewers were friendly. Two guys were older employees and the third was a new hire that had been working there for about two months.

    After the interview, they talked about what I could expect on the job, travel, different teams, etc. As a bonus, I got invited to stick around after a tour of the labs and the building to attend a company social that was occurring that day to meet some of my possible coworkers and to get a feel of what my work environment would be like.

    Everything happened fairly quickly, after the interview I got feedback the next day from the recruiter. HR sent me a bunch of pre-screening forms (background check, drug test) and applications. Within a week I received my offer.

    Interview Questions

    • All behaviorial, just prepare to talk about yourself, look over the typical questions and you'll do great.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't really one. I got pretty much what I asked for.

    Interview

    I applied through the company website, sent my CV and a cover letter. I was contacted to proceed to the first stage of the hiring process (group interview + written test of 1h30min) and asked to send an essay prior to that. Moved on to the second interview on 1:1 basis and never got a response on behalf of the HR team. Overall, very long process and lack of follow-up.
