    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in February 2007.

    Interview

    Referred by friend. Phone call set up the interview. The interview process was very impersonal (a cookie cutter interview consisting of 5 back-to-back technical interviews where the interviewers came with a sheet of set questions.) that was more of solving programming trivia (eg. linked list, ++p or p++, etc)

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I got the impression that it was all about work (the interview lasted until 9.00 pm and pretty much everyone was still working on the floor that I was on). They did not ask me anything about my background, the experience that I would bring, any technical problems that I faced in my work and how they were dealt with (gave me the impression that your past is not relevant). With 10+ years of experience, I was not asked any design questions but stupid programming trivia (which is ok within limits) about how to increment pointers, how to do recursion, and how to mask bits!

    Before the the offer, I got a better position in my, at that time current, company so decided to stick with it.
