Technical Lead Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in June 2017.

Interview

The interviewing process was very confusing. The hiring manager changed the job description, did not allow the recruiting team to be involved, and would continually misrepresent the position. It appeared only certain H1B candidates would be considered.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very very long. This was back in 2006. It started off with a recruiter calling you to start the process. There were a bunch of forms to fill, and after a few phone calls the first round of interview was set up. But then this being such a big company there were miscommunications with the timing and the people in the interview panel. The interview process was good. There were 2 technical rounds and then an interview with Sr. Mgmt.

    Interview Questions

    • an open ended question about how many signals there are in san jose and how would you find that out   Answer Question
