Interview Details –
First applied in September 2013 for the Summer 2014 program. Heard back a few weeks after applying in early October to set up a WebEx interview with a recruiter. I had applied previously to the Partner Sales Academy and when the recruiter heard this, the interview was relatively simple and quick, about 15-20 minutes. Basic questions such as Why Cisco and What I knew about Cisco products. There were some general resume questions as well. After this, I was informed that I would be contacted if selected to move forward, which I got a strong feeling I would be.
About 2 weeks later I received an invitation to record a 2 minute video response through HireArt with the question "What are your top three qualities that will make you a successful sales person?" After recording this, I received a rejection email a few days later despite the HireRight page listing that my video was still under review and not yet checked by an employer.
The third step, if selected, is attending an assessment center in RTP, NC.
