Application

I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cisco Systems in April 2007.

Interview

From my university, I was interviewed by three panels of 2-people each. Previous sales experience was nil and I was interviewing for a sales position, so typical sales-job questions were limited. I was asked on my perspectives of the sales process, given situations to analyse and made to do one or two mock sales pitches. Then, I was flowin to the location I wanted to be based out of, for more rounds of interview - 3 more rounds. I was interviewed from the top to the immediate manager - again, typical questions on my previous work and sales perspectives. The HR was super quick in rolling out the offer as I was on a deadline from another company.

Very little negotiation. Some one-time payments (relocation, etc) can be negotiated, but nothing other than than.
