    Program Manager Intern? Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (San Jose, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    First contacted via email basically saying their interested to interview me.

    Get a call from the GM and we talk for about half an hour or so, basically disclosed that I wanted to get in a more technical/program management position.

    Second call was from my manager, basically asked some of my technical knowledge (which was fairly limited), but told him that I'm a quick learner and willing to meet new challenges.

    Overall, throughout this entire interview process, they never clearly disclosed the product or group I would be working with or my exact job title. Very disorganized interview process and they didn't even bother checking my references!

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay was relatively low, compared to my current internship, and HR was extremely disorganized.

    Interview conducted via Video Conference (Cisco Telepresence System). One round.Friendly interviewer, mostly behavioral questions. Slow decision time. Took 2 months to get an offer.
