Software Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Cisco Systems in November 2012.
Interview Details – I had an on-campus interview, went pretty good and was mostly analytical questions and algorithms questions. Then I had a phone interview, very technical and detailed, but the guy was helpful. At the end, the HR said you've got positive feedback on your interviews and we'll let you know when we've openings, which they didn't
Interview Question – Nothing surprising, but the guy did ask about everything related to networking fundamentals and C++ Answer Question

Network Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and 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.

Systems Administrator Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Cisco Systems in May 2010.
Interview Details – Process started with a relaxed phone interview from a recruiter. Pretty basic questions about my background and what I like. Phone interview with the Hiring Manager was next. Questions were about my background, why I left my previous company, and other questions to gauge my thought process. Next was a phone interview with a team mate of the position that I applied for. Questions involved my knowledge and interests in Databases. None of the questions were hard. More leaning towards figuring out my interest in DBA work and compatibility. Next I was called in for an on-site interview. Each of the team members took turns interviewing me. Questions were a mix of technical questions and questions about how i would handle certain situations. Interviews lasted half a day. Each of the team members were really nice and gracious.
Roughly four weeks later, i was told that the position that I applied for was no longer open due to BU needs.
