Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Miami, FL) in August 2016.

Fast, which for Cisco standards was really good, but sometimes I was not aware of what was going on in the process. I sent a couple of emails and did not get a response

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in March 2015.

    Interview

    I have a friend who works at Cisco and they recommended me for a position. I've heard such great things about working for the company so I was excited about the opportunity. I had two phone interviews for this remote position - one with the manager of the marketing team and another with a member of the team. Both went well but I never heard back from either. I followed up appropriately and professionally and was told by the manager that the position hadn't actually been approved yet. I wondered why they would bother putting me through two interviews for only a potential position? I found out months later that the manager had been let go and things fell through the cracks. A huge bummer for me as I had hoped that such a successful company and things more structured and put together before taking up so much of someone's time.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview

    Multi-tiered interview process. No surprises.

    Negotiation

    The offer was fair at the time, so no negotiation was required. Never come into Cisco as a contractor, team lead, or non-people managing position (if you are not IT or Engineering), as promotions may never happen.
