    Associate Systems Engineer (Sales) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Amsterdam (Netherlands)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a CV screening, followed by a 1 hour discussion which included general questions about availability, salary expectations, and behavioral questions. The next step was submitting a video resume and a 2 minute video where I had to describe a high-level technical concept. Despite successfully passing all stages until the Assessment Centre step, I was rejected due to availability, I could not start the program at the prescribed start date and there was little flexibility on this date.

    Interview Questions

    • Among the questions there were:
      Describe cloud computing.
      Describe a situation in which you handled a conflict and what the result was.
      Why do you think you would fit CISCO.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (London, England (UK)) in April 2015.

    The interview process consisted of three rounds. The first one was very general, and was mostly just to see if I knew what I was getting myself into and what I would bring to the team. The second and third round they asked me questions relating to my resume and testing me on what it is that Cisco actually does and how their technology is used.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in October 2011.

    Interview

    First round phone interview (these can also be in person), second round was to do a 2 minute video on youtube answering the question 'what do you think cisco means when it says the network is the platform'. Definitely questions to determine whether one can speak well enough, has a fundamental understanding of some of the technologies, and understands some of the industry strategies/issues. Third round is a full day on site in person interviews and a several mock sales sessions.
