    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • I was only expecting very high-level questions about my papers at school, but some of the questions dives deeply into the details. Anyway they are not difficult given I was the author of the papers.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Adobe (Vancouver, BC) in March 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    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%

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Adobe.

    Interview

    Series of 5 phone interviews followed up by 2 in person interviews. Position evolved and I had an additional 3 phone interviews. Each interview was between 30 min and an hour, and consisted of a mix of describing my resume and then some industry specific questions. Everyone was great. The questions shouldn't be hard if you're a good fit for the position. They are thorough and want the right fit. They want to know you know what you're talking about and are a good fit for the company culture. The whole process from first call to offer was about 2 and a half weeks. Start date was 2 weeks after that. Know the product and the company. Research the position and what you'll be doing before the interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 10+ monthsinterviewed at Adobe (Munich, Bayern (Germany)).

    Interview

    My application at Adobe in Germany was the worse candidate experience I have ever had. The process took almost 10 months..I went through 5 interviews and I never received a feedback.

    The absolute lowlight is however the illegal question I was asked in the final interview: "Are you married or single"?! I was shocked and I felt really bad after this question as they discriminated me with regard to my marital status. Even children knows that these questions are prohibited! Superbad.

    I believe that an interview training is urgently needed for interviewers at Adobe as this is an unacceptable mistake and this could have legal consequences.

    I will never apply again for Adobe.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Slow, but very organized. The interview was fairly easy, 4 individual interviews about 30 minutes each. They want to see if you're a good fit, mostly behavioral questions. They want to know if you will get along with the people in the company, as well as the team. Interviewers are laid back and friendly and will walk through your resume and ask specifics.
