Interview Details – There is one campus interview and one onsite interview. People are nice. They seem to love their work. Software developers from different teams (in my case, four teams) will talk to you. They will decide whether you are a good match for their team. HR is responsible for behavior questions.

Marketing Communications Interview

Anonymous Employee
Redwood City, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Informatica.

Interview Details – The interview process spanned about four weeks, during which I met with the hiring manager along with four other members of the team—including the head of the department (a VP). I met one-on-one with each of them, and found the interactions to be very engaging, straightforward, disarming, and pleasant. Part of that was a reflection of the overall work climate of their department specifically and of Informatica in general. And part of it was also, no doubt, a function of what was clearly to become a good match between me and the team.

Interview Question – I don't recall any difficult or unexpected questions. I did not feel that any of the interviewers were trying to test me, per se, nor had any particular agenda of questioning. Rather, each of them conversed with me in a way that seemed to get an overall sense of how well I would integrate into their team and the organization as a whole.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was nothing to negotiate. Since I was recruited though a staffing agency, the salary and benefits for the position had been revealed from the very beginning. It was very much in line with my expectations, given the level of responsibilities for the role and my own background and experience.

Technical Delivery Manager Interview

Technical Delivery Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Informatica.

Interview Details – Technical based interviews focused on both product knowledge as well as implementation. It is important to know process. Product knowledge can always be gained. As long as presenting knowledge on how to scope/address issues/handle problems the interviewee will do fine. Interviewers are looking for real word experience.
