    Product Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Lehi, UT
    Anonymous Employee in Lehi, UT
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Adobe in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume, and was called in for an interview on campus about 2 months later. I interviewed with a recruiter who went over my experience, portfolio and job expectations. About another six weeks later I had a phone interview with a hiring manager. I was told I could expect to either hear back, or go through a follow-up interview within several weeks. The process took so long that I ended up applying for another position, interviewing and was made an offer before hearing back. I called the recruiter who informed me that their had been some complications with positions being restructured, and they hadn't made any decisions yet. I backed out and accepted the other offer. So I really don't know whether or not an offer would have been made.

    Marketing Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Adobe in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with 5 people over the course of a month, all individually and in-person with the exception of 1 person that was remote. Appeared to be varied approaches as if they divided and conquered. One interviewer was more antagonistic than the others and appeared not to be interested in my response.

    I interviewed online. 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. Process took a bit longer as I wanted to, and I wasn't given an official offer till I verbally accepted the position. Constantly had to reach out to the recruiter to get a reply, but response was fast.

    Interview Questions

    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.
