Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
Application Details

I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cisco Systems.

Interview Details

Phone interview then in person interviews with about 5 people at the HQ in San Jose. Everyone seemed nice and happy that I was interviewing for the position. I was the only person on the team with my specific product and technology background. The BU "marketing" people were engineers that didn't place much value or understand marketing.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Cisco Systems in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was referred by internal Cisco contact and contacted by recruiter. After calling recruiter back twice she responded and set up the initial interview. Had one interview with hiring manager. Waited two weeks and called recruiter, who had no information, but within an hour had asked an assistant to set up further interviews for three days later.. Total of three phone interviews with team members. Overall interviews were not challenging. Very conversational. The challenge was that the recruiter did not respond at all, causing the process to drag on as I heard no response at all.
