    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cisco Systems India.

    Interview Details

    I went off campus for this interview. I scored higher on the aptitude side, so was sent to interview for the NCE position. My technical interview was largely based on my resume. And my managerial interview was just the manager explaining concepts to me. My HR was just chatting with the HR. Everything was pretty smooth.

    I decided to pursue my higher studies.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Cisco Systems India in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    fast interview, quick response for a contractor

    for on-payroll employees, however the HR process, approvals, etc and other HR proceedings take a very long time. The manager responses are also time consuming.

    There are multiple interviews, panel discussions, 1:1 meetings, phone interviews, etc. The HR process is tedious as well.

    Interview consisted of a phone interview by the hiring manager, followed by 3 more phone interviews with potential team peers. Then invited to an onsite interview with 2 more potential team peers. Mostly consisted of questions on how you would handle issues with coworkers, managers, challenges. They just want to see if they can work with you and how your past experience can transcend into the new position.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 9 months - interviewed 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.

    This textarea doesn't allow to be precise on the process, hence I am adding little extra bit. But, I got the opportunity through a consultant. Consultant fixed the first round of interview over phone.
