    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter who obtained my resume online. After a quick phone screening, I was set up for an in person interview. I was interviewed by a four person team who asked some background questions and a bunch of networking and OS specific technical questions. I then interviewed with their manager who asked mostly questions pertaining to my background and life outside of work. Received an offer the day after the interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was declined because the contract company only offered slightly better pay than what I currently make, but no benefits. I currently have Health, Vision, Dental, Life, 401K, PTO, and training reimbursement. I couldn't justify loosing those benefits for just a bit more money, and they didn't want to renegotiate pay. It would have been a net loss on my end.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Cisco Systems in March 2008.

    Interview Details

    The application was long. Very long. It took approximately one month for them to correspond. They give you an "assessment test" to quiz your general knowledge. They let you know how you've done immediately. If you get passed the assessment, your interview will be within the next 3-5 business days. Have your first interview with direct management, then a second with administrative management 1-2 days later. They make an offer to you (or not call you back) within a few business days.
