Alcatel-Lucent Interview Process


I applied at Alcatel-Lucent for the post of Software Developer through my university. I was then interviewed at Alcatel-Lucent. The hiring process at Alcatel-Lucenthave four rounds in total - MCQ Test, Online Programming Test, Technical Interview and HR Interview. The entire process took just one day.

Round 1 - MCQ Test
There were four sections in the MCQ test - Aptitude based questions, microprocessor, c programming and digital electronics. The questions were appropriately targeted to test the basic skills of the candidate. They were not difficult and neither too easy. One can easily find out the solutions but doing that in the given time can be a bit challenging. Although, I think it was fine and it was pretty much doable.

Round 2 - Online Programming Test
This round was my favorite of all. I am pretty good at the technical stuff and programming is something I love. Each of the candidate was required to write any two of the three programs given. The programs were not difficult and if you are even a bit good at it, you will do it within no time. If you can't do it, probably you need to work hard at your skills because this is just the base of what you will be required to work in the job.

Round 3 - Technical round
I was afraid for this round for real. But I found this round to be easy as well. Only the basic questions were asked. I was pretty much relieved as I was expecting some difficult things. Of course, if you have not studied, even these questions will seem difficult for you. I am mentioning one question here so you get the basic idea of what to expect:
Q1. How will you reverse a string using recursive function?

Round 4 - HR Interview
This interview was the last one of all. Surprisingly the HR interview was about the basic HR questions only. So, if you have reached till here, then you're probably already selected. Of course if you act foolish even at the basic questions, they will reject you. Just prepare some good answers for the basic questions that are expected in an HR interview and bowl the HR with it.

How to crack (get into) Alcatel-Lucent Interview


The interview process at Alcatel-Lucent was pretty much hassle free and easy. If you have been a good student in your college studying side by side appropriately, you will definitely crack the Alcatel-Lucent interview.

For others, start preparing the basics and give it a try. Like I have already explained a bit, you must have got a good idea about things. You have to focus on your programming skills the most. MCQ test, online test and the technical interview await many programming based questions for you. So if you want to get through, you must be good at it.

Other than that, prepare for questions related to strings, data structures and OS based questions for the technical interview. Of course, I can't guarantee you anything but these are the prominent areas. Other than that, I can just wish you best luck for your interview. Prepare hard and crack it.
