    Human Resources Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Submitted application in late September with just a resume. Heard back around late October to set up a video/phone interview with a recruiter who I had spoken to previously in an informational interview. Had to wait about two weeks to hear back about next steps even though the recruiter said it would only take a few days. Didn't get an offer and when I emailed the recruiter to ask what I was lacking, she vaguely said it came down to how prepared applicants were. Thought I did enough research and preparation but I guess not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Cisco Systems (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through their website to the Dubai office. The interview was through WebEx and it was around an hour long. The questions asked included brief information about myself, my knowledge on on their products and how they work, some technical questions and then general personality questions.
    The interviewer was not based in the Dubai office but from the office in Amsterdam. I did pass that interview and am still in process although I did not receive and email confirmation of the next step in the application process.
