Network Consulting Engineer Interview

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.

Reasons for Declining

    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.

    Interview Details

    I was called by the HR directly for NCE position and they scheduled 3-4 back to back telephonic interviews which were purely technical. Some were okay but some asked quite a lot of details. Overall experience and response from interviewers was good. After that there were face-to-face interviews with Manager and Senior Manager which also were good.
