    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Boxborough, MA) in November 2008.

    Interview

    On-campus interview was entirely behavioral, with hardly any technical questions. It was almost too easy to be true.

    The on-site interviews, there were three in total, were hardly different in that they were more interested in selling the company and the location to me instead of asking me any technical questions. There were a couple of brain teasers, but nothing beyond that.
