I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Adobe in April 2014.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Adobe in April 2014.

Interview Details – Initial contact was quick, and I had a total of 5 interviews. This took place over the phone, and there was no face-to-face interview.

Constantly had to reach out to the recruiter to get a reply, but response was fast.

Interview Question – How do you manage difficult resources?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The only disappointment was that the package was lower than what was initially discussed during the first call with the recruiter. They said Finance got the number wrong.

Technical Support Engineer Interview

Technical Support Engineer
Newton, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Adobe in March 2014.

Interview Details – Was first approached via an Adobe recruiter via LinkedIn, spoke a couple of times and was given an online technical test. The test itself was fairly straight forward. Spoke with the hiring manager next, then was finally brought in for the in-person interview. During the in-person I was given another technical exam which was more complex and covered a wider array of topics. I interviewed with three people including the hiring manager and one of my peers. Throughout the whole process the interviews were a combination of technical and company fit questions. Everyone was very friendly and professional throughout the whole process especially the recruiter who was constantly in contact and made the process seamless.

Interview Question – There was an I++ question on the technical exam that was unexpected and gave me some difficulty.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Initial offer was quite fair but you can always negotiate for a bit more.

Very Difficult Interview

Solutions Consultant Interview

Solutions Consultant
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Adobe in March 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted online by a department head and asked if I'd be interested in applying for a specific position. What followed was a very quick, but intense interviewing process. In the course of a week and a half I had 6 hour long phone interviews, a day trip up to Boston to meet with the hiring manager, an overnight out to Utah to meet the team, had to provide a portfolio of my work, and give an hour long presentation. While it made for a very difficult and intense week (while still working full time), I appreciated that the process did not drag on needlessly.

Interview Question – How would you pitch a specific product to existing customers, and explain to them the benefits that it offers?   Answer Question

Software Engineering Interview

Software Engineering

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Adobe.

Interview Details – There are two rounds: a phone screen and an on-site interviews. The phone screen asks about your previous projects and your goal in career. We only did one simple technical question writing a factorial function (be careful of edge cases and input errors). Got to the on-site interview meeting with the manager and two other people on the team. The manager asks out vision and goal and another simple technical question. The second person asks two more harder technical questions, but still not too hard. The final one asks a brain teaser and an object-oriented design.

Interview Question – (1) Factorial and Fibonacci functions (recursion, trade-off, what if we want to call it several times?)
(2) Given a binary tree, return another tree with reverse in-order traversal.
(3) Find output and bugs in a given program.
(4) Design an object-oriented program for a library (emphasis on users, types of books, check-out, return)
