Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Informatica.

Interview

Applied through school career center website and also talked to recruiters during career fair. Got an on campus interview within 10 days. The interview is pretty short, only 60 minutes. The guy who conducted the interview was from the head quarter and has been a software engineer for 20 years. The question he asked was about is pretty easy. It was about Binary Search Tree Traverse. How to do it recursively and iteratively.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Informatica in December 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy interview but the interviewer was unprepared! The interviewer didn't greet me and had no idea about the status of my application. He also just hung up after we were done without saying anything but 'Bye'. I solved the questions really fast and when I was done it seemed like he was googling random questions and asking me. Was shocked when I didn't get an offer because I thought I did really well.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Informatica (Campus (Nepal)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    First contact was on campus at a school job fair. Submitted my resume and got a call within a couple of days to appear for an on campus interview. I only have 5 days in between to prepare for the interview so I definitely could have done better....

    Interview

    There is one campus interview and one onsite interview. People are nice. They seem to love their work. Software developers from different teams (in my case, four teams) will talk to you. They will decide whether you are a good match for their team. HR is responsible for behavior questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Informatica (Redwood City, CA (US)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    There is one round on campus interview. Took 45 minutes. Two simple questions about binary tree traverse and string duplications.

    Then there is one day onsite interview. About 5 round totally, each is one hour. No break between interviews (except the lunch). So its a tough day. The questions including design, algorithm, test case, brain teaser...
