Project Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (New York, NY).

Interview

For the internship, I had two behavioral interviews. One was from a new hire and the other from my (potential) manager. The interview was conducted through WebEx and was very laid back. No hard questions, really trying to gauge cultural fit and interest in the field

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was not interesting as the interviewers seemed unprepared and tired. Also, they kept emphasizing the time limit and seemed to handle a crisis situation (the audio on webex didn't work) with panic and blame. They kept asking if I had questions even after asking them 3 questions. Be prepared to talk a lot if this is the situation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Easy, interviewer very friendly, no hard questions. They told me I was successful and they will get in touch to arrange a formal face-to-face interview, after a month they emailed me saying I was unsuccessful... ridiculous
