Software Integrator Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Montreal, QC

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in March 2014.

Interview Details I applied via my school portal. I got a phone interview. The interview was barely technical. They talked to me a lot about their project and what they do. The problem was they were desperate for anyone to apply because it was a 12-month internship and people usually try to avoid those.

Interview Question – Nothing was difficult. But based on my research I know Ericsson asks a lot of Java.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – It was a 12 month internship, I was looking for a shorter term thing.

C++ Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide

Interview Details A very straightforward process. Two people were interviewing, two hiring managers. Both asked fair but important questions. The general air and and attitude was great, both interviewers were friendly and polite.

Questions were a blend of technical plus non-technical.
For instance
-Tell us a bit about yourself.
-Tell us a little about your last job, what were your duties and tasks ?
-Any difficulties you had in your last job ?

The technical questions covered the basic stuff:
-Object-Oriented Programming, some C++ basics (Difference between a pointer and a reference), multi inheritance vs single inheritance, etc.
-They also asked to name 5 different data structures (they could have elaborated on this as well).
-What is your favorite programming language and why ?
-What is the largest or most interesting project you worked on.

Interview Question – Nothing too expected but they asked some OOP basics like difference between multi inheritance and single inheritance, examples of that, provide the architecture in terms of classes and attributes to a university/school system (i.e. Student, Course, etc.).   Answer Question
