Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Cisco Systems in February 2015.

Interview

Initially applied online with help from a former colleague. After a brief phone screening, I was advanced to a 1:1 interview. The interview was conducted on WebEx, which was a video program similar to Skype. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and was very informative. It was mostly designed to get a feel for personality and understand why Cisco and why this specific position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cisco Systems (San Jose, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview with the recruiter, very brief, roughly 30 minutes. The interviewer was five minutes behind schedule so my interview started late which threw me off a bit and it seemed slightly unprofessional as well. Overall it was a good experience, very casual atmosphere and laid back.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cisco Systems (San Jose, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed online through my career center with my resume first. Next, they contacted me for an in-person interview. I met with one woman who asked me completely behavioral questions and took notes on her laptop - probably filling out a form she uses for everyone as the position was part of their university connection program. She was very nice, but we didn't talk about anything on my resume once.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview

    I spoke with Cisco recruiter at my university's career fair and really hit it off with her. We spoke in-depth about my resume for a good 20 minutes and about 3 weeks later, I got an e-mail about a screening interview. The screening interview was quick and painless, asking basic questions about work eligibility and a few behavioral questions. After that came a behavioral interview with one of the IT managers at Cisco, and it was a very laid back conversational interview. Received an offer about 4 days after the second interview, and the entire process took about a month and a half.

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

    Interview

    Interview was filled with behavioral questions. It was a very laid back, quick interview (30 min). Many scenario questions were asked, so prepare for that as well as questions like "why are you studying your major" or "what would you say is most difficult about working with groups?"

    Questions are asked off resume as well. I was asked what BFS is and how to implement it but that question came up after discussing one of my projects.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was very straight forward. The interview was typical, they just want to get to know you and your experience. The hiring process was a breeze, they do a background check and send you a drug test kit via FedEx, once those clear you get your hire date.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your salary requirement? :) Always the hardest question.   Answer Question
