    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Berkeley, CA) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Got the interview in school career fair. It was a 45 mins of on site interview. Was asked to solve 2 questions -- one is BST vs BT, another is related to linked list. I got first one kinda wrong and corrected it with his hint. I could not finish writing 2nd one due to time limit, though I knew the solution and explained my approach. Surprised that I was not asked to introduce myself or talk about my projects. Do your leetcode and you will be fine.

    I met the company recruiters at a career fair on campus. I was asked some basic questions about data structures by an engineer there and then signed up for an interview for later that week.

    The on-campus interview consisted of some behavioral questions and two simple technical questions I had to code on a whiteboard. Two weeks after that interview I was sent an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in September 2017.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview with one of the senior employees, not for the team I was interviewing for. We talked about my past experience, my career goals, what I saw myself doing at Cisco and why I was pursuing a career in technology. Very behavioral, nothing technical. I got an invite for a phone/video interview with the hiring manager for my team. This was a little more focused on what skills I possessed and what the project was focused on.

    Interview

    Setup an interview after interacting at a career fair. One-on-one interview with an engineer. It was not too formal. Not too technical in terms of low-level details. Felt more like a conversation than an interview.
