Ericsson Interview Experience - Noida , 26th Nov 2018
The profile for which they intended to recruit was AET(assistant engineer trainee) introduced not more than that of 1-2 years ago.
There were almost 256 students from JIIT and all it's sister universities. Being an ECE graduate, Ericsson sounded a good opportunity for me.
The recruitment process started with an aptitude test taken by cocubes consisting REASONING, ENGLISH and QUANT.
Total time allowed was 45 mins and 15 questions in each of the sections where you can switch between the sections.
1. LOGICAL REASONING.
LR part is quite a time-consuming one which you can tackle with some practice of puzzles, sitting arrangements, blood relations, and data sufficiency questions.
Some questions were from flowcharts that you might not have seen in regular aptitude trend. I would suggest you not to waste your time on a puzzle that you can't solve (a 2 variable puzzle can be solved easily with some practice but still can't say that one can always solve that easy since it depends on the information given in the question). The difficulty level of this part was moderate to high and it was time taking.
One reading comprehension in which I had some difficulty to understand so I did not invest much time reading it thoroughly.
Some of the questions were from basic English grammar which you can easily give a hit but still with some understanding since grammar was a bit trickery too.
5-6 questions were from synonyms and antonyms out of them 50-60% were moderate. The overall level of English was moderate.
Quant section was a blend of 4-5 easy questions and 10-11 moderate to high-level questions. The questions were from compound and simple interest, ages, numbers, permutations, percentage, profit and loss and time-work.
Some questions in cocubes are made only to skip since it is not affordable to waste time in a shorter time span of 40-45 minutes. So I would suggest not to involve in any question that you can't solve in one go. Altogether, the quant section was time taking and the difficulty level was moderate to high.
On the basis of online test, 56 out of 256 were shortlisted for further rounds.
The next round was a tech interview followed by a HR interview.
Technical Round :
Here I will discuss a cumulative approach, how you can prepare for TR rather than mentioning the exact questions that were asked.
Ericsson interviewers were very supportive and jolly nature people same as I have read on IndiaBix before my interview and felt the same during the interview.
You must have your fundamentals cleared because they do not ask much in deeper but indeed they try to have an overall view of what have you studied in entire graduation.
Most of the questions were from communication (go through the basics of analog and digital communication, only the fundamentals).
You may expect questions from switching and networking so get ready with the routing, switching and basic concepts of networking.
They asked me questions from OSI and TCP/IP suite and tried to delve a bit deeper. So study about OSI and TCP/IP suites and have some fair knowledge about protocols that are assigned in each layer.
The rest of the questions were from telecom, such as TDMA to OFDMA, GSM to LTE call FLOW (I was asked how does a prepaid call takes place in real time) and read about the architectures of various generations (2G, 3G, 4G).
You might face some random questions that you might not answer(only to check your confidence). Don't give wrong answers repeatedly if you don't know rather say a clean 'NO'.
Also, you should go through ERICSSON where they deal, what services do they provide etc. You also may be asked to discuss your projects.
The key to crack TR is your sheer confidence and a clear sense of knowledge about technical fundamentals.
Later on, almost 25-26 were selected after the HR interview.
Best of luck guys ! blessings of god !
