    Cloud Security Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Autodesk in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted about 1.5 month later by the recruiter. Spoke with her on the phone, who gave me an overview of the position. She told me that there is no hiring manager yet because Autodesk is still recruiting for a Director level position for the Cloud Security team. However, somebody outside of the team will interview me instead.

    A phone interview was scheduled by the recruiter, but 30 minutes before the scheduled interview time, the interviewer couldn’t make it. A 2nd phone interview was then scheduled. On that day, the interviewer was a no show. I contacted the recruiter and she could not find where she is (?). The following week, another phone interview was scheduled (this is now a 3rd attempt).

    On the 3rd attempts, the interviewer was late so the total interview time got cut off. The interviewer asked about my skill set, but some of the discussions seems heated because she “disagreed” with my approach of implementing cloud security based on regulations and standard frameworks. As mentioned in the 1st paragraph, she is NOT in the Cloud Security team, she was tasked by Autodesk to do so until a dedicated Cloud Security personnel is hired. So it’s like you’re interviewing for an accounting position but the interviewer is in Marketing.

    Anyway, I didn’t hear back from the recruiter after that. 2 emails went nowhere. After the blunder in scheduling the phone interview 3 times, the almost “hostile” discussions in the phone interview and the recruiter ignoring me, I don’t think I will want to work with Autodesk Security team.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Pittsburgh, PA

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Autodesk in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received an email and they setup an interview by phone. By phone they asked me questions about my resume, projects I have worked on and C++ experience. It seems to be that they required a C++ developer and my background and projects I have mostly worked on were not C++ oriented.

    IT Helpdesk Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Autodesk in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    There are 2 interview rounds. 1 phone and 1 in person.

    The phone interview is just an introduction of yourself and what you can bring to the company. There are no difficult questions that are asked. This is a time to ask the manager about processes and applications that you will have to support.

    The in person interview is a panel of 2 to 3 people. Usually the manager and and two team members. This is their time to see where you fit, force you to think critically and test how fast you are able to think. All of the questions are behavioral questions and are not based on technical skill sets. Basic teamwork questions and customer service questions. There is 1 technical question that is not too difficult at all. If you do not know the answer to it then you should not call yourself a tech. Hint: It is related to networking.

    The hiring process was long but worth it. It helps ensure they are hiring the best people. Once the interviews started, they were quick and efficient. Everyone I met with was prepared and took time to answer the questions I had. There were a mix of phone and face to face interviews.

    Product Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Autodesk.

    Interview Details

    The process was very long and drawn out. I dealt with an HR recruiter. After a phone screen and then meeting with the hiring manger, I did have a half day of interviews with various team members.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    i had heard that autodesk does not pay a competitive salary from several current as well as ex-employees, so i did go into the interview process with my eyes open on that. they severely low-balled me on the first round, but eventually we got a little closer to my target salary. unfortunately, i was told that they no longer offered RSUs at my "grade level." this was actually a main sore spot for me as i have worked in tech for well over a decade now and stock is usually part of the compensation package. two of my other top choices did offer RSUs as part of their package, but i was really excited about autodesk as a company so i went ahead and accepted the offer anyways.
