    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Adobe in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter for a sales job. Went through two rounds of phone interviews plus gave a PowerPoint presentation over the phone. Same recruiter called back about a different consulting job, so started the process completely over with a new group of interviewees. Was flown to Utah to interview with six people in three hours, then was flown back home same day.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Adobe in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process of interview is good.
    2 online tests (one apptitude, one on C), very easy. Caled for face to face almost after 2 weeks. 1st round was ok. The guy was intelligent and sound. I cleared. 2nd round. A rude guy with lot of questions, but not willing to here answer of any. He rejected some of the straight forward answers. It was just what he knows was correct. Such a fool I saw at Adobe. Sad, not because he rejected me, but because of the fact that fools are everywhere. Happy, because I will not have to work with such a fool.

    Adobe Sales Academy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Adobe in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Adobe had a booth at the career fair. I talked with the guys and gave them my resume, I had an interview with them the next day. Within a couple days I got an email inviting me to their main office in San Jose California. They paid for my flight and hotel as well as a $50 Visa card for taxi fairs. The interview was on a Monday and there were about 43 people interviewing for the job and I believe they were filling 15 spots. The interview was with 2 senior sales managers who were pretty cool guys. About 4 days later I got a phone call saying they liked me and wanted to have one more guy talk to me through Adobe Connect (like Skype). Not really sure what his role was but it was about 3 weeks after that they decided to offer the job to someone else. Bummer... Still seem like an awesome company to work for.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Adobe.

    Interview Details

    Corp Recruiter was great to work with . Hiring Mgr was wonderful and in -synch. On site interviews: First video interview on-site had no camera available for me- only outgoing transmissions, not inbound. Two potential team members did not review my resume before the interview. Both looked tired. Half of 30 min. interviews discussed that my BS degree was not relevant even though I had 25 years experience in the field and had returned to college 3 times for additional relevant coursework, including technical and programming skills and had multiple highly valued and difficult professional certifications PLUS the hands-on experience in spades, as even the Hiring Mgr. agreed to be senior level and very well qualified. to add sting, I was questioned if the Corp. Recruiter was a personal friend of mine and did I know them personally. OUCH! .The answer to those questions was no, never met or knew the Recruiter prior to them contacting ME. Surprised me that they saw no connection to taking Statistics, Calculus, Six Sigma Green Belt, Accounting courses and Scientific Theory towards Analytics, and after doing formal Status Metrics Reports up to Executive Management for over 10 years. Feedback: They could not connect. Go figure.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Adobe in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Process was run incredibly well by recruiting, who hold the power at Adobe. Once you are in with them they route you through the process in a way that is professional and efficient. My advice, try to connect with recruiters - if they like you they will get you to the hiring manager.

    Not a lot of negotiation - I wish I had asked about the timing for salary reviews. I negotiated a good offer in late October, reviews and salary bumps were in January and I got screwed but I should have asked. It was especially painful as there were freezes on bonuses for a few years so my advice for any job is ask about the timing for promotions and salary increases so you don't go more than a year stuck at the same level.
