    Network Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Sydney (Australia)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I first had a 20 minute phone call. They asked basic network questions and maybe a few behaviour question. e.g. of behavioural question being when was a time when you had to work as a team? Networking question example is what is DDoS?

    The assessment centre interview went pretty well until the technical question came along. They asked what you can do to find out why the new router that was implemented is not working correctly. I was unprepared, involved subnetting. First part of interview was team-work, then it was technical question, and finally panel interview asking behavioural questions.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Sydney (Australia)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The process was long with a number of different stages. The assessment centre was nerve racking but, very much aligned to the role you're expected to do. The assessment centre includes a personal interview, test, presentation and role play. Once through the job I believe the associate program is absolutely second to none. Not many companies invest as much time, effort and money into early in career as Cisco does.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Sydney (Australia)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Incredibly lengthy process, it took months to go through the whole interview stages. The Assessment centre was a mess and it took well over a month to receive an answer when one was promised a week after. Contact with HR was horrendous during this time and was kept outside of the loop for a very long time before an offer.
