Senior Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cisco Systems.

Interview Details

A member of my business network contacted me about positions Cisco was looking to fill. I had 9 interviews (face to face, and phone) with future subordinates, peers, hiring manager, VP, EVP, and HR. The interviews were both behaviorally and technically based. The people were brilliant, extremely hardworking, collegial and ambitious. They had deep belief in and loyalty to the company. The culture was focussed, customer driven, and values based. Despite the extremely demanding hiring and interview process (and I got off light with only 9 interviews, typically it was a minimum of 12) it was the best company I ever worked for.
