    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Cisco Systems in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.
