Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (New York, NY) in September 2017.

Interview

Unprofessional, the HR guy called me bro and sweared a lot. he didnt really care about hiring. He sounded like he was in a rush. He said he will call back and didnt until weeks later. Offers me the job and didnt tell me much else. I lost interest after that and told them I found a job. Even though I did not find a job, i just didnt want to deal with them.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Dallas, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was a little slow initially, but once on the inside, things picked up quite a bit. I happen to be interviewing at the end of the fiscal year, so that could have attributed to the longer than usual process.

    Initial interview with HR just to screen. After that, you'll interview with people in the same position, or within the department and then if you pass these, you'll move on to interviews with management, or the final decision makers.

    I was referred by the SVP of Sales, had a phone interview and then 1on1 with the hiring manager. It was a fair interview and I got the job. I wore a suit and was well prepared.

    Interview

    At Cisco, there is a pretty long interview process where you have to meet with multiple people and sometimes even before there is a job opening. Also, you may have to meet with people who are not directly involved in the hiring but who will give their input as well.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the hiring manager (Regional Sales Manager), and a team of three other Cisco Employees via a Webex video web meeting. The interview process was very professional and the interviewers with all great. There was a nice mix of general interview questions and "get to know you" type banter. They all were able to provide good feedback to my questions too.
