    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview

    2 rounds of phone interviews (both audio). Both behavioral and no technical questions asked about data structures or algorithms . Seemed quite unprofessional and unprepared. They not only changed the duties of the role but didn't explain the position clearly until second interview. The first interviewer didn't even seem to realize what type of position they were looking for either. The one semblance of a technical question was very abstract/hypothethical and related more to data science than software engineering.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in July 2020.

    Interview

    45 minute interview with the manager of the team I was interviewing for. She asked mostly questions about my resume and my experience. No technical questions. She allowed plenty of time for me to ask questions which was very helpful for me to get a better sense of the team and the role.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Morrisville, NC (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    I went through a recruiter/hiring agency and the process was so quick and easy. My recruiter reached out to me about the job on a Sunday and I had accepted the offer within a week on the following Monday. I had four separate interviews - my supervisor, teammate, project managers, and supervisor’s boss. Everyone was super friendly and easy to talk to with very standard interview and behavioral questions.
