I applied online. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (United States)

Interview

Took a while from they expressing interest in my resume to actually getting an interview. And if it wasn't for a follow up from an employee, the interview may have never happened. But what was even worse, is to date, weeks later, not scheduling me for the next round or letting me go. Just disappeared. I didn't really think the person interviewing me was very experienced but I felt I had a very strong interview.
