    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Autodesk in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Get contacted with the recruiter, sounds perfect for me. Interviewed by the manager, everything looks good but eventually they turned down my application, and went to another candidate. During the interview they are more interested into what they are doing other than what I've done. It is more like a production introduction than testing my qualifications.....

    Did not progress pass the 2nd recruiter interview stage. At the first phone interview, the recruiter thought it more important to take a call from his daughter. An email of apology was delivered the next day, with a request to continue the conversation. I responded with a specific time, it was greed to. When the time came, I called and left voicemail message, called again minutes later and resolved that this was a waste of time.

I didn't get the offer and their feedback is my background doesn't match well comparing to other candidates. I really like their office building in montreal, it looks like a studio inside.

    Database Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Autodesk in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and the recruiter called couple of days. The first technical interview was set in a week's time but the manager had to leave in half an hour and the rest of the interview got postponed. The next time the interview was set the manager never called and it wasted my day. Next interview date was set the hiring manager called and started with lot of development questions.It started on the wrong foot when the interviewer asked me what i do and what is the position i had applied for. Clearly the guy did not know whom he was talking to and what position he was interviewing for. At the end i knew i did not make it because most of the questions were not relevant to the job description.

    Product Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Autodesk in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a phone interview. There was multiple people but the interview was well balanced and informative. It didn't really give a good indication of what the position was like, it felt more like a "do we like you?" interview, I was overqualified so maybe that is why there was no skill test
