Project Manager Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Adobe in April 2014.

Interview

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

Negotiation

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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Plan on having numerous interviews. Decision is based on consensus which may prolong the process due to analysis paralysis. Expect long pauses in communication to let you know where you stand. Just because you get an offer, doesn't mean you get the job. There have been times when the offer was rescinded due to a hiring freeze imposed between the time you accepted the offer and your start date.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared to say what your role was and your actually contribution, not just what "we" did. Plan on being asked how you deal with ambiguity when given a task. Expect to know how to navigate through the silos to get tasks done. Be prepared to give examples of this from previous jobs.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Aim high, expect a lower offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Adobe (San Francisco, CA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a 3rd party recruiter for a contract position. The recruiter found my resume online. I had an initial conversation with the recuriter that lasted about 25 minutes. The job requirements were very generic. My resume was forwarded to the hiring manager and a 45 minute phone screening with the hiring manager was scheduled for the following week. The interviewer was 25 minutes late for the call. When I did speak to her, she did not ask if I wanted to reschedule. She provided a brief overview of the position and the composition of her team. The interview only lasted 20 minutes as she had a hard stop in order to prep for her next meeting.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Adobe in September 2009.

    Interview

    Was contacted by someone I knew there re an upcoming contract position. Had initial conversation with that person re the project, the department, my relative experience and potential interest. Was then asked to submit a resume, examples of spreadsheets I had managed and sign paperwork to allow a bg check. Was then called in to meet with the Director and Senior Program Manager. We discussed the project, my relative experience and the dynamics of the various stakeholders involved in the project. Al in all it went well, and I got a good feeling for the team I would be working with. Had to wait to hear back on final decision for a few days. received job offer and took it!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Adobe in December 2008.

    Interview

    Was contacted by recruiter to publicize opening. Ended up applying myself. Short phone interview with recruiter -- pretty standard HR questions. Never got the opportunity to talk about my technical expertise, which was a very good fit. Recruiter simply didn't reply to further contacts, not even to say that someone else (a friend of mine) was hired.
