    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Bengaluru (India)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewers were very knowledgeable and nice to me. It took long time to complete the interviews with all the Senior Managers because of their busy schedules. My interviews were directly initiated by the hiring manager as I was referred internally by one of my friend.

    Interview Questions

    • There are 2 colleagues in your team A and B. A is senior and is very skilled and B is very energetic and enthusiastic person and is very productive. A has some complains about B's attitude as B has been praising Mr. C very much in front of all the people. A comes and talks to you saying, it should be the act which should be praised, not the person. How will you handle this conflict?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No Negotiation was possible for me. I was told it's the best offer they can give to me as per company's standard scale.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in October 2009.

    Interview

    Applied through the company website but also forwarded the resume directly to the HR recruiter. (I got the name of the recruiter from a contact within the company). This was a phone screen with the recruiter and had the typical questions about why you left your company, how many people you managed, etc. This is used to determine if you will be presented to the hiring manager. The recruiter was willing to share where I stood with the competition.

    Interview Questions

    • What have been doing during this time (of unemployment)?   Answer Question
