Ericsson Interview Experience - JIIT, March 29 2016
I'm Ashish Mishra, ECE student (Jaypee University of Engg and Technology).
This is the Placement paper and Interview Experience of Ericsson India global services Ltd, for the Graduate Trainee Engineer (GTE). Ericsson visited one of the sister university (JIIT) of that of mine (JUET) on March 29, 2016. Nearly 550+ students applied for it.
The process started with PPT, they discussed job profile they're offering, about the company, services they provide and innovations they've made. It ended with query round, they gave pretty fit replies to the queries made by applicants. PPT took about one and a half hour. PPT was followed by an online test. The test was easy but little clumsy because of time boundless.
Test consisted of 3 parts:
2. Logical Reasoning.
3. Quantitative Aptitude.
I found English and reasoning part quite easy, but Quant was difficult to do within in permitted time, as it sought quick calculations.
The test was conducted by CoCubes and time limitation was 45 minutes. Again, if you read the newspaper (or even watch English TV series carefully) you would hardly face any difficulty in verbal part, for Reasoning in IndiaBix will do the job and for Quantitative part R S Aggarwal and basic Arithmetic is sufficient (yes, they ask basic arithmetic as well like algebra and Geometry). And remember they'd sectional cutoff as well. They declared the result at 7 in the eve.
Anyways, next day around 160 students out of 550+ cleared the Test and appeared for GD round. The common GD topics were Offline vs Online shopping, Social Networking, e-commerce, Co-education etc. GD was easy as well, there were about 15 eliminations in this round. A Simple way to clear this round is to "speak", don't wait for moderators to give you the opportunities (although they'll) take initiative for yourself and speak your mind.
Around 145 students qualified GD round. It was followed by Technical Interview, we were told to prepare well for the technical round as it was expected to be intense. Interview questions mainly were based on Networking, Communication, and Programming. My interview started at 11 a.m, which was as follow:
M: May I come in sir (little nervous)!
I: Yeah, please come in. Are you?
M: Ashish Mishra.
I: (searched his database) OK Ashish, tell me about yourself?
I: Have you heard of Brussels attack, would you like to talk about it.
M: Yeah, sure I would like to (Spoke for about 6-8 minutes)
I: Good, so you read a newspaper? (Looking into his TOI app notification on his phone) What do you think about Vijay mallya?
M: Told. (spoke)
Since I like to speak of social affairs, now I was comfortable there.
He asked me a couple of more such questions. After about 12-15 minutes.
I: Ok, Ashish, you know C++ and Java right? (Going trough my portfolio)
M: Yes sir, I'm comfortable with both the languages.
I: Ok, draw OSI model architecture for me, along with protocols of each of the subsequent layers.
I: What is the difference between TCP/IP and OSI model?
I: How GSM works?
I: How GSM is different from CDMA?
I: Can you tell me any new technology in communication domain?
M: Told about LiFi. (thanks Quora)
I: What is Bluetooth and how does it works?
I: Tell me about your Industrial training?
I: Do you know about LTE?
M: My apologies sir, I don'T know about it.
I: (told me about LTE ) Ok, tell me the difference among 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G?
I: Do you know LINUX?
M: Sorry sir, I fear, I don't. But I happened to know about Hardware programming pretty well.
I: (asked me about my hardware projects)
I: Tell me about Routers and Switches?
After couples of the most technical question.
I: Ok, Ashish, we're done here. Do you've something to ask?
M: No sir, all good.
I: Thank you then, you can wait for the results.
M: Thank you so much, sir.
I found the interviewers very polite and alleviating. My interview was about 45-50 min long. We waited for the result, it was announced 1 HR later. Luckily I was selected for HR Round.
HR round was good as well, the interviewer asked some conventional as well as non-conventional questions. You just need to try convincing the HR interviewer with your answer.
Finally, 111 students got selected and I was one of them. They announced the result at 8 on the eve and then phone calls followed :).
