    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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
    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.

    IT Sec PM Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Adobe.

    Interview Details

    Corp Recruiter was great to work with . Hiring Mgr was wonderful and in -synch. On site interviews: First video interview on-site had no camera available for me- only outgoing transmissions, not inbound. Two potential team members did not review my resume before the interview. Both looked tired. Half of 30 min. interviews discussed that my BS degree was not relevant even though I had 25 years experience in the field and had returned to college 3 times for additional relevant coursework, including technical and programming skills and had multiple highly valued and difficult professional certifications PLUS the hands-on experience in spades, as even the Hiring Mgr. agreed to be senior level and very well qualified. to add sting, I was questioned if the Corp. Recruiter was a personal friend of mine and did I know them personally. OUCH! .The answer to those questions was no, never met or knew the Recruiter prior to them contacting ME. Surprised me that they saw no connection to taking Statistics, Calculus, Six Sigma Green Belt, Accounting courses and Scientific Theory towards Analytics, and after doing formal Status Metrics Reports up to Executive Management for over 10 years. Feedback: They could not connect. Go figure.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Adobe.

    Interview Details

    Two rounds of phone interview followed by two on site then another phone interview.

    The most annoying part was that after investing so much of my time into the process, the recruiter had issues responding to emails on time. Shows very poorly on behalf of company and how they treat people.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were around my area of expertise , previous experience and how it was relevant to the current job.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    First interview was at my University. There was an interview day a few weeks later, which consisted of four 1 on 1 interviews, 30 minutes each. Each interviewer asked one behavioral question and the rest of the conversation was spent describing resume/skills. Interview questions were easy. They are looking for people who fit well with their personalities and love their product.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interviewing process consisted of two HR generalists interviewing me. They were very friendly but do expect you to research and know the company. The questions were pretty standard and they definitely ask questions based on resume so be sure to know what you are talking about.
