    Anonymous Employee in Goa (Philippines)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cisco Systems India in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    It was On Campus Interview. Initially we had an Online examination, question were from topics ranging from C programming to microprocessors, from MOSFETs to subnet masking.There were also a few aptitude questions. Apti questions were little bit tough.Out of 36 people who appeared for online test 15 were shortlisted.
    After that we had two round of interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • In my first technical round interview.I was asked some very basic C question.When I say basic I mean very basic you should know how memory allocation works in C.
      I was asked following questions:
      1. How to find out size of structure without using sizeof() function
      2. What are holes in C
      3. What is inheritance.
      4. What are copy constructor and virtual function.
      5.C program to reverse a linked list.

      After that I had another round.Not sure whether that round was technical or HR .My interviewer grilled me for my low CGPA for around 50 min. He just asked me to write a code in python to print prime number between 1 and 100(since I mentioned Python in my resume). He also asked me what I know about software testing and whether I am willing to do software testing at CISCO. End of the day it was all about CGPA.
      They selected two students with highest and second highest CGPA.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 9+ monthsinterviewed at Cisco Systems India.

    Interview Details

    Horrible Process ! I was interviewed on their bangalore campus. There were almost 500 people who had attended. They called out a few names and informed others they may be called later. I was done with three interviews on the same day. After 3 months I got a call informing me about my selection and also a mail confirming it. After that there was no communication. I had to call back several times ! By that time the guy who had mailed me had left cisco.
