    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Intuit in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met with a HR Recruiter at a Job fair for my college and had a fantastic conversation. I was told that I would receive a phone call within two weeks. Got my phone call, scheduled a one hour phone interview; the first half was behavioral and the second was technical. During the technical interview I was asked any specific coding questions, but rather to follow and answer questions as the interviewer built up a larger software idea.

    Interview Questions
    • The entire behavioral interview was rather difficult as I have had very interviews like it.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Intuit in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied online, but spoke with them at a career fair. Soon after I heard back from a recruiter, who scheduled an on campus interview. I actually accidentally missed the interview, emailed my recruiter apologizing profusely, and she set up a phone interview to replace it. My interviewers asked similar questions to the posts here- abstract classes vs. interfaces, the different scoping keywords in java, unit testing- From what my interviewers told me, they're not necessarily looking for the absolutely correct answer, but mainly that you at least have a general understanding. The interviews are half behavioral, half technical, so expect to be asked about projects and such from your resume. He asked why I wanted to work at Intuit, and other standard questions.

    Interview Questions
    • The abstract class question was posed differently- he said something along the lines of "Suppose you have an interface in which certain aspects of the implementation could be defined and those would carry over to classes implementing it- when do you think that would be useful?" ."   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The pay rate was pretty decent- I was hoping for a bit more. My recruiter told me they generally pay between $25-$30 depending on experience, and they offered be $27/hr. If I was going to negotiate, the right time to do so would be during the phone call with the recruiter when she asks you about pay requirements. I didn't know about their bracket during that call- if I had told her I wanted $30 an hour, I think I would have gotten it.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Intuit in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I first saw Intuit at the Grace Hopper conference in Baltimore. Everyone seemed happy and when I went up to talk to them, I said that I was interested in work-life balance, technical challenges, and hackathons and side projects. The woman I was talking to laughed and said, "well then you'll love Intuit!" I had my behavioral interview then and there, and the next day I had my technical one (and that was kind of intimidating, we went to a high top table and I was given just a few minutes per question). Later, after that part, they called me and had me come back to their booth. The same woman I had originally spoken to ran through a few more behavioral questions, and then invited me to the Intuit mixer later that evening (they invited their interviewees to the mixer at the conference). Later that evening at the mixer, they told me that I got the offer! Everyone was amazingly friendly.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Intuit in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Consisted of two 45 min phone interviews. First one was with HR, second one was technical. HR Interview was more of a fit interview. I was asked about my skill sets and background. It's important that you show to HR that you have a passion for computer science & software. I actually interviewed with three different teams because the HR Rep really liked me and wanted to find me a position that suited my background. The technical interview consisted of a lot of java questions and objected oriented design questions. Questions include interfaces, abstract classes, inheritance, polymorphism. Coding question was to write a method that tells whether a string is a palindrome or not.

    Interview Questions
    • What is the difference between an abstract class and an interface?   Answer Question
    • When would it be appropriate to use an abstract class, and when would you want to implement an interface rather than extending a class?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No, since it is an internship position, there is no negotiation.

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Intuit in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I first spoke with Intuit at a campus career fair. The recruiter mentioned that I go to a school that is one of a handful of "Target Schools" for them. We spoke for a good chunk of time and he said he would pass my resume on to HR. It took a while before they got back to me, but I set up a time to talk with them.

    The first interview was an hour long and I spent 30 min talking to one recruiter and 30 min talking to another (the second was the same gentleman from the career fair). They said one would be behavioral and the other would be more technical, but both were a little of each. Both were exceedingly nice. They weren't out to trick me, but rather to asses my knowledge.

    They just asked general programming questions and then gave a hypothetical situation and asked how I would approach it.

    They later got back to me saying that some of the hiring managers were interested in talking with me. We set up a time to speak with 2 separate managers and this was just a pretty straightforward resume review / get to you phone call.

    I got a call back about a week later saying they were interested and got a formal offer a few weeks after that.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to describe Abstract classes vs Interfaces in Java.   View Answer
    • The second was an abstract problem and I was to describe how / what I would implement.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    It was a very short interview. I think it wasn't any more than thirty minutes. Started out with a few behavioral questions - asked about experience at school and what my biggest mistakes were. Ended with two simple technical questions. Interviewer was very friendly and the process was a ton of fun.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Intuit in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with webex, which showed slides online. There were a bunch of programming questions on the slide. Questions range from simple algorithm question like finding anagrams to more complicated design questions and debugging questions.

    1:1 interview was more of personality test. The interviewer asked mostly about how I resolved a bunch of different issues, which can be technical or non-technical. Talked about my experience in previous internships and jobs. The interviewer and I got into very interesting talk about compilers and agile development process..then we ran out of time. The interviewer liked me and hired me into his team.
