    Virtual Customer Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Singapore (Singapore)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was with the lead CSM manager, followed up by the sales manager. Currently waiting for a response regarding whether I passed the second interview or not.

    The interview process is very easy, whether you are doing it face to face or via Cisco's proprietary video conferencing software (WebEx). The questions are great questions, that really dive into whether you would be a good fit for the role or not.

    Negotiation

    Difficulty was with the negotiations for package, internal recruiters was reading from a sheet to sell benefits of the company, even though many did not apply to my situation. When I tried to dispute some of the benefits that recruiter was telling me about, I was told off and ended up having to deal with hiring manager. Internal recruiting team is much stronger now, probably as result of others similar to my experience.
