The first technical round will be with similar experienced people and one manager. The next round will be with two architects and a senior manager. HR round will be just a formality to find out the compensation. You can ask for joining bonus and discuss the notice period during this time.

Network Engineer Interview

Network Engineer
Lisbon (Portugal)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Nokia Solutions and Networks in January 2012.

Interview Details Online application with recruiter, got contacted by phone, did phone interview, which was mostly useless, as recruiter data was inaccurate/just generic/trying to find a candidate ASAP, and scheduled interview with client in matter of days. Did 1:1 interview, detailed explanation of operations and braking down of different expected job roles. Also was informed that the horizontal progression is not common or encouraged.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Low salary
