    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cisco Systems (San Francisco, CA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Cisco employees are very courteous and polite. The interview process was not as intimidating as I though it would be. It's hard not to get caught up in how relaxed their enviornment is. Lots of people dressed in shirts and shorts. I was definitely over dressed.
