Software Developer Co-op Interview

Anonymous Employee
Vancouver, BC

I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide in July 2010.

Interview Details Only 1 interview as this is an internship position, panel interview with 2 interviewers. Most questions are of technical nature, mostly regarding Object-Oriented design. Work culture tends to be more isolated than social, which can help focusing on difficult tasks. Uses Agile methodologies so work is done by small teams.

Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide.

Interview Details I had to go through two interviews. First with my manager and a HR representative. There were lots of behavioral type of questions in the interview. It lasted about one and a half hours. Once passed the first interview, a second interview was called with the Finance Director. It was not so difficult. FD was convinced once he understood my interest to work for the company and my skills to be successful in the role.

Interview Question – Tell me a situation when you were not in agreement with your line manager, and what did you do?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Two things I have negotiated for once I received the offer later- a) Joining date (I wanted to join bit late as I needed few more time to comply with my notice period); and b) Increase of base salary.

They agreed with my 1st negotiation, but there were no room for them to increase the base as I was offered the maximum of their budget for the position.
