Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

Interview

Not a bad interview process. Some of the questions had nothing to do with knowledge and more to do with thinking on your feet - initially it throws you off guard.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in June 2015.

    Interview

    Everything was very pleasant.

    I first had phone interview with the team manager, who'd sent me an email because I'd applied for Cisco a few months prior for another position and hadn't received it, but I was on Cisco's 'list of possible candidates' for this position (or something like that). He was a nice guy, asked me some basic behavioral questions, talked about the position and Cisco. Overall, he made me feel very comfortable and excited about the position.
    After this, I had a set of three half-hour interviews with various members of the team, one after the other. These were all done through WebEx (Cisco's meeting/messaging system) and all went well too. More behavioral questions, asking me about my past projects and other topics on my resume, as well as talking about Cisco and everything.

    After that, I received a verbal offer literally four hours or so after being done with the interviews.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in February 2015.

    Interview

    Initially applied online with help from a former colleague. After a brief phone screening, I was advanced to a 1:1 interview. The interview was conducted on WebEx, which was a video program similar to Skype. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and was very informative. It was mostly designed to get a feel for personality and understand why Cisco and why this specific position.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (San Jose, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview with the recruiter, very brief, roughly 30 minutes. The interviewer was five minutes behind schedule so my interview started late which threw me off a bit and it seemed slightly unprofessional as well. Overall it was a good experience, very casual atmosphere and laid back.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (San Jose, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed online through my career center with my resume first. Next, they contacted me for an in-person interview. I met with one woman who asked me completely behavioral questions and took notes on her laptop - probably filling out a form she uses for everyone as the position was part of their university connection program. She was very nice, but we didn't talk about anything on my resume once.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview

    I spoke with Cisco recruiter at my university's career fair and really hit it off with her. We spoke in-depth about my resume for a good 20 minutes and about 3 weeks later, I got an e-mail about a screening interview. The screening interview was quick and painless, asking basic questions about work eligibility and a few behavioral questions. After that came a behavioral interview with one of the IT managers at Cisco, and it was a very laid back conversational interview. Received an offer about 4 days after the second interview, and the entire process took about a month and a half.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview

    Interview was filled with behavioral questions. It was a very laid back, quick interview (30 min). Many scenario questions were asked, so prepare for that as well as questions like "why are you studying your major" or "what would you say is most difficult about working with groups?"

    Questions are asked off resume as well. I was asked what BFS is and how to implement it but that question came up after discussing one of my projects.
