Human Resources Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Cisco Systems (San Jose, CA) in February 2010.

Interview

Initially contacted by a recruiter who explained the role. I was then invited to meet with the hiring manager. After a one hour interview I was invited back to meet with 2 HR partners. Following those face-to-face interviews I met with 2 of the 3 leaders the position would support. I talked to the third leader on the phone. The recruiter kept me updated about the status of the recruiting process the entire team.
