    Community Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (San Jose, CA (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First round consisted of very standard interview questions, and meeting, via WebEx, with two members of the Community Relations team.

    I would like to high-light that I felt like the interviewers didn't take the process seriously (or just didn't take me seriously as a candidate)--and I say this, because one of the interviewers had her boyfriend laying in the background during the WebEx interview. It was a bit strange, uncomfortable and, personally, I think it high-lighted a lack of professionalism. Ultimately, I didn't get the job--but after the interview experience, I knew this wasn't a team I would be interested in joining.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you feel your skill-sets align with the position? Have you worked on projects where you had to coordinate with multiple departments?

      The questions were easy and standard...nothing surprising.   7 Answers
