I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Newark, NJ).

Interview

Cisco came to my univsersity's career fair and I talked to one of the recruiters. Apparently I got his attention and when I was leaving the career fair, they called me to schedule for an interview the next day. The interview was about 30 minutes long and we mostly talked about my background and my resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    On-Campus interview with only one round. Offers were given two days later. The interviewer was not really paying attention to the answers that I was saying. The interviewer did not seem knowledgeable about the work that cisco does and seemed like she had no ambitions apart from staying in her role at the same level. Quite a boring interview, could not connect.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Chapel Hill, NC) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Fairly easy - mostly behavioral questions for on campus recruiting. Interviews were scheduled after several on campus visits.

    It's important to know about the company; know the leadership, what they are pursuing. Research Cisco before going in and talking to recruiters.

    Very impressed by the turnaround time -- less than a week to receive my offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Campus representatives were at my university's supply chain management career fair, I went up to their booth and gave my "elevator pitch." After a bit of discussion, the Cisco reps invited me to interview with them the next day. The interview was about 45 minutes long and was composed of behavioral questions or explanations of my background. The next interview round was conducted over the phone, I spoke with the department managers about my qualifications and the job description.

    Overall, I would say that the interview process was enjoyable and all the people I spoke to enjoyed their work. The interviews are easy if you are educated in what Cisco does and who they are. My advice: walk in/dial in knowing what attracted you to this company and understand what your personal strengths are.
