    Inside Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Adobe in November 2018.

    Interview

    Premier entretien téléphonique avec la RH très agréable ou la communication s'est faite de manière fluide et transparente.

    Convocation ensuite pour un 2e entretien en visio conference avec la manager de l'équipe. Echanges intéressants et questions "challengeantes" des 2 parties. L'entretien a duré près de 1h25 au lieu des 45mn-1h prévu initialement. Bon signe? Peut-etre pas.

    Lors de mon 2e entretien avec la manager, je lui ai demandé de me donner une date precise de réponse. Est-ce que c'est dans 3 jours, est ce que c'est dans 5 jours? Ce a quoi la manager m'a répondu "fin de semaine prochaine maximum, car on veut aller vite" donc à +7 jours. Je lui ai envoyé un mail de remerciement + de motivation dans la foulée. J'ai ensuite attendu 3 jours pour relancer la manager et la RH qui m'a répondu 9 jours après l'entretien en concluant par "Permettez-moi de revenir vers vous dès que possible pour des updates concernant votre candidature". De nature tenace dans le follow up et dans les relances, je décide cette fois de croire en la bonne volonté de cet exécutif et décide de ne pas relancer tout de suite et de me reposer sur le professionnalisme et la communication d'un groupe leader et réputé tel que Adobe.

    Aujourd'hui, 18 jours ont passé depuis mon dernier entretien avec la manager et toujours pas de communication de la part du groupe. J'ai bien compris l'issu de ma candidature. Je trouve néanmoins très décevant et lassant de la part d'un groupe comme Adobe; ou communication a été synonyme de succès; que le candidat soit encore traité de la sorte. J'aurais préféré un NON franc et justifié (cela prend 1mn par telephone) afin qu'Adobe ne perde pas de temps et qu'ils ne m'en fasse pas perdre non plus.

    Je suis convaincu que vous paierez le prix de ces agissements à grande échelle. En attendant, je vous remercie pour la confiance que vous avez décidé de m'accorder à faire votre publicité.

    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (Paris (France)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    1ère étape : entretien téléphonique avec les RH
    2ème étape : entretien en face à face avec le N+1
    Pendant cet entretien, les questions ont été faciles, l'atmosphère était bonne et détendue. On m'a présenté un autre membre de l'équipe, ce que j'ai pris pour un bon signe.
    Je suis sortie de cet entretien ravie et confiante.
    Et depuis? Rien. Aucune nouvelle depuis 1 mois et demi. Aucune réponse malgré mes multiples relances. Pas même une réponse négative. Je n'ai jamais vécu cela : c'est comme si j'avais cessé d'exister aux yeux du recruteur. Ce fut une expérience horrible pour moi, je réalise que cet entreprise que j'aimais beaucoup n'a aucune considération ni respect pour les candidats.

    Computer Science Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA (US)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Process took 3 months to start, then the actual interview process was about 1 week.

    I was in contact with a recruiter for about 3 months. I wanted iOS so it took awhile because they don't seem to have much mobile intern stuff. Once I was passed to a hiring manager, I was contacted within a week. They got to me within a day I think, set me up with another interview. My first interview was with a manager (not super technical), she asked me about my experience and projects. She then asked me some questions about where the programming languages I've used fall in complexity compared to others. (eg. C# is higher level than C++). She then asked me how languages I've used would translate to the project at hand.

    For my second interview, I talked to a tech person. He was really good about asking me questions that related to my background (I'm not computer science). Sometimes in interviews with other companies, I'll tell the interviewers I'm not computer science and then they will proceed to ask me to program a data structure or something. Adobe actually asked me questions that applied to the project and my background, rather than arbitrary concepts. I feel like this shows maturity because they were checking if I was qualified for the job rather than whether or not I've memorized how to recurse a binary tree. Anyways, he asked me questions about OOP design and systems design. He then had me design the system and general interface for the system I was to build. This system had to do with a mobile client and multiple back-end APIs.

    I think within a day of the second interview I was scheduled for a third. For my third interview, I went into a video conference with the team I would be on. They were good about asking me tech questions that had to do with the project and my background. They asked me about past projects and the concepts I've used. They asked me to write a program that generated a path given an array of points, then display that generated path on a UIView (this was for iOS). Most of the questions were about my background and then they would ask me specific questions to see if I really knew what I said I knew.

    A couple hours after the third interview I was given an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was a part of the internship fair. They had me send in a resume which they printed 20+ copies of (black and white). The room was set up similarly to a career fair, a different team at each table. I spent the first day distributing resumes and pitching myself (be prepared to do so). Then the teams are rated by you, and you are rated by the teams. Some mysterious process occurs in which mutual highly rated matches were set up for interviews on Day 2. I interviewed with 3 teams. One of the three teams presented me a technical questions in the form of a programming assignment. Another of the three teams asked me general technical questions. The last only asked me behavioral questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Recruited by a colleague with whom I worked at a previous employer. Initial phone screen by hiring manager, followed by a full day of in-person interviews, 30-45 minutes each, 9 total, including the head of HR and the Director of Engineering (reported to COO). They bought me lunch on site and gave me a tour of the campus.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions and none that stood out as difficult. Pretty standard behavior, goals and strength/weaknesses type questions. Some programming quiz type questions, like, describe how you would synchronize the classic one-lane bridge problem: What's the shared resource? How would you make the scheduler fair? What data structure would you use to maintain the arrival order of cars waiting to enter the bridge?   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    I'm a tough negotiator and so were they. I asked for the moon in salary, they, very professionally, said no without any beating around the bush, which I appreciated, and countered with an overall compensation package, which included profit sharing bonuses, equity, and 401k matching.
