    Interview Details

    Started with a brief introduction of my own projects with some follow-up questions. Some are very detailed and technical, but nothing tricky. Then discussed a potential project and introduced briefly about intern life at Adobe and the site. The entire process was very friendly. A week or so later I received an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Adobe in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had not applied/submitted my résumé for this position, which was an interesting bit of information.

    1. Received email from recruiter/talent acquisition specialist asking if I had any interest in position and a good time to call.

    2. Spoke to recruiter, he had mentioned he would set something up with the hiring manager for the following Monday.

    3. Had a phone interview with the hiring manager, ~30-45 minutes. Very fluid, comfortable, intelligent discussion.

    4. That Wednesday, I had 3 interviews with members of the managers team. Again, ~30-45 minutes each, very comfortable conversations.

    5. Was told I'd hear back in a few weeks - the wait game began!

    6. The last possible day of the two weeks came, and it seemed a mad scramble, but Adobe wanted to fly me internationally to meet the manager over dinner, all expenses paid. Offer was made over dinner.

    Very little negotiation, but very little need to. Initially, they had found what my pay expectations were at. They exceeded my expectations by nearly 20%

    Interview Details

    Great people. I really liked the people I interviewed with. Very nice, pleasant, and asked good questions. One interviewer brought along a junior team member to shadow her and ask her questions. This showed that they care about team members and their development.

    Unfortunately, it took weeks to hear back from them and the recruiter wasn't very responsive. At the end they told me the position was on hold.

    Manager Advanced Analytics Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Adobe in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I talked on the phone with a recruiter and then with a former manager in the team. Both people I spoke to were very nice and I found our conversations interesting. However, the process itself was very disorganized. Without explaining it, from the first call to the second, they had changed me as a candidate to a different position. And when I asked for information about this new position, the person didn't really know what was going on. And then I never heard back from either of them. Nice people, but very unprofessional.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Adobe.

    Interview Details

    I have applied on line. I have several friends that work for Adobe in other countries and they are quite satisfied by their position.

    The recruiter sends a mail to pursue with this position, then it forgets about the phone call that we just scheduled and after 1 day leaves a message on the phone saying to call back. Call back, no answer - then the rejection mail.

    Sending back a mail to the recruiter for explanations .. oups .. let's reschedule it .. but how (?) since you already rejected my application .

    Worst experience ever .. from a company like Adobe ..
