    Application Details

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

    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 Questions
    • What is one risk you have taken that had a negative outcome, and how did you handle it?
      Describe a hardship in your life and how you overcame it.

    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

    I think the team is good in general. It's the recruiter I have complaints with.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Adobe.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Adobe in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through collage career fair and had an on-campus interview. Then, got a onsite interview the week after. We spent two days at Adobe. The first day was like a mini career fair. We can talk to the teams that we are interested in. By the end of the day we ranked the teams that we are willing to interview with. At that night we got our interview schedule for tomorrow.

    Interview Questions
    • The team I interviewed with asked four simple technical questions.
      (1) Finding bugs in a C code (something about index out of bound.)
      (2) Basic idea of constructor and destructor in C++.
      (3) Given an integer array and its length. Eliminate the duplicated numbers in the array.
      (4) Point out the flaw of a class in C++ (poor memory management.)

    I applied through the career fair and had a onsite interview the next day.
    The interviewer asked me whether I have used Hadoop before and ask me about the recommendation system. Obviously they are looking for data engineer/scientist at the moment.

    But I was not prepared for that so I got declined.

    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.
