Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Adobe in March 2014.

Interview Details

The hiring process started off with a phone interview with hiring manager, and then I was invited on-site where I had face-to-face interviews with 4 engineer on the team, the recruiter and the hiring manager. The interviews were pretty straight-forward. They mostly consisted of behavioral questions regarding past experience.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Adobe.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is a bit slow, which is probably usual thing for big companies.
    Most challenging part of technical interview was related to low-level db transaction processing, java threading and concurrent issues for clustered environments.
    As I understood, algorithmic question quite necessary to answer, they just wanted to see how will I try several approaches/evaluate them.
    Overall, Id say guys were quite friendly and supportive .

    Interview Details

    Nice interviewers, good environment. I was asked some questions about my background and the projects I've attended. Any my salary expectation, my ideal company, why I want to leave current position. All of the general questions. The technical interview is not difficult, I was required to write a program on write board to sort a binary tree. And explain my previous projects.
