    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Raleigh, NC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    There were two interviews. Both were with program coordinators for the Leaders in Finance and Technology (LIFT) program which is what you would do after graduation. The internship feeds into that program so you meet with the same people. First interview was very much focused on learning about whether or not you did your company research with a few behavioral questions as well. Second interview had some technical accounting questions but was primarily focused on trying to determine whether or not the company was a good fit for the long-term.

    Product/Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Research Triangle Park, NC) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed with agency, then told there'd be an interview with hiring manager, then final interview with potential stakeholders/coworkers.
    First interview with agency went great. Told I was perfect for the role. Booked next interview with hiring manager on Friday for following Tuesday. Manager accepted/confirmed.
    Manager re-confirmed with agency on Tuesday morning. 20 minutes after the confirmation I get another note from the agency stating that the interview was cancelled because the hiring manager hired someone else thru another agency. Nothing more.
    This sounded odd because I'd been told by multiple sources that the manager was loyal to this agency. Also, why would one confirm only to cancel 20 minutes later? Did he really hire someone without doing all the interviews he'd already confirmed or was the agency less than truthful? Either way, this screams of unprofessionalism either by the Cisco hiring manager or the Cisco preferred agency.
