    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Milpitas, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with an online coding test. Interviewed by phone with technical questions. Then interviewed onsite by 3 developers.

    It took a long time to hear back about the offer. Over a month in fact. This was out of the control of the recruiter and the company so I can't complain but it certainly wasn't a good experience waiting that long. The actual interview experience was great. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. No arrogance at all compared to other companies / interviews.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in May 2010.

    Interview

    After a short phone screen, I had a four hours of interviewing. The interviewers wanted to see if we could work well together. Other companies wanted me to prove that I was good enough to work there. The difference: cisco respects their candidates. Interviews focused on writing clean, maintainable code, communication and problem decomposition. Other companies tested me on trivia or implementing algorithms that I doubt someone in the position in question would need to implement. In addition to being smart, cisco wants to know the quality of the code you produce and what it would be like to work with you to solve problems. This told me that I'd like working with other at cisco, and I was right.
