Intern Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (New York, NY) in October 2015.

Interview

Handed in my resume at career fair and applied online and got an interview a couple weeks later. It was online through WebEx. They asked a bunch of typical behavioral questions and questions about my activities and stuff. Then had me share my screen and code some technical problems. First was a difficult data structures scenario I tried doing but struggled with. He asked me some questions and we discussed a bit but he then gave me an easier problem and helped me work through that. Got an offer about a week later.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (College Station, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter at a career fair at my university. Got the interview immediately for the next day. The interviewer asked me a few questions about my resume and after a few words where I explained I wasn't a computer science major and had spent more time learning advanced hardware than software, he tuned me out. I explained to him that I had a decent software background and he asked me some questions about different software related fields and protocols for their routers. He was not very interested however and kept looking out the window and to his watch. Overall very unprofessional interviewer.
