    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.

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Adobe.

    Interview Details

    Interview process included 4 co-worker interviews to begin with. Each was about 30 minutes long. Second round of interviews included upper management (Sr. Director), other managers on the team that I wasn't going to interview with, and several people that seemed to be somewhat irrelevant (legal counsel). Interviews were comfortable and friendly and included behavioral-based questions, and one brain teaser type question. Mostly just going over resume sharing hi-lights.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were particularly difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Explained my needs and expectations. When they couldn't meet them exactly, I offered an alternative way of meeting them, they accepted.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Adobe in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The worst interview experience I had.
    The first interview went was fine and went for 1 hour and the interviewer as well as the Recruiter said that 1 more round will happen.
    After waiting for 4 hours they asked me to leave. WTF.
    you can directly tell me after 15-20 mins to leave. Also the recruiter instead of saying we can't carry with the candidature is saying that you can come tomorrow.
    for 4 interviewers they called around 25 people.

    Common people be a bit professional!!!

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Adobe in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, had a couple phone screen (background chat & coding) with the hiring manager and a machine learning scientist, went onsite to San Jose office.

    In case you haven't heard about it, Adobe is also in the marketing cloud business now. And so that's probably why they're hiring a bit more of people in data science. I was interviewed with one of such team. The overall scheduling and interviews are well arranged. A mixture of coding, statistics and modeling problems are tested. I wish there was timely feedback after all the interviews were done.
