Group Manager SMB Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Intuit in September 2011.
Interview Details – Multiple interviews using STAR format. The interview was casual. Do not wear a suit or tie. You will feel extremely uncomfortable. They also stress that in the hiring process. Be prepared for 6-10 interviews before having an offer. Teleconference is likely as well. The process moves pretty quickly and the interviewers take the job very seriously. They were all well prepared and professional.
Interview Question – All questions were pretty straight forward. Answer Question

Accountant Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Intuit.
Interview Details – Initial phone screen with HR rep then on-campus interview with three members of hiring team. In regards to interview, 30 minutes per individual that included specific technical questions pertaining to entailed job duties.
Literally within half an hour after interview ended, received an offer from HR rep, who indicated "Within his/her tenure at Intuit, they've never seen anything like this and was completely amazed". The HR rep also quoted the interviewing team who stated "They had someone in mind for the position until you came in" etc. It was pretty much best case scenario for any interviewee. The HR rep then gave offer and I requested 1.5% more than what was offered. I figured the worst that can happen is that they don't budge and I'll go with what they offered in the first place. It took a day for the HR rep to get back to me and when they did, it came with an unexpected response... Intuit had rescinded the offer altogether. I went from "The best candidate for the position" to "Not a good fit for the company", all because I tried to negotiate an additional 1.5% salary.
Now imagine if I had given my 2 week notice to my current employer after Intuit's offer, I'd be unemployed because apparently it's Intuit's policy to Indian give employment offers.
Interview Question – Technical accounting/finance questions applicable to month end tasks. Answer Question
Interaction Designer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Intuit in July 2013.
Interview Details – Phone screen with HR, phone interview with hiring manager, and then a 5-hour onsite interview with team. The onsite consisted of a portfolio review, a design exercise, and 1x1 interviews with STAR questions.
Most people were very nice and friendly. The design team was aloof and less so.
Intuit recommended showing breadth during the portfolio review. However people were only interested in design work that they could relate to. My advice would be to ignore the portfolio instructions and only bring design pieces which are relevant to the position.
Interview Question – I applied to a Web design opening and got a touchscreen design exercise, which was strange. IMO the exercise was poorly conceived and written as well. Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Intuit in June 2013.
Interview Details – It was an internal referral so all I had was an on-site interview. I spoke with 7 different people from senior engineer to director. The interviews were fairly easy (maybe because it is an internal referral). I spent most of the time talking about my resume and discuss about Intuit's recent move to cloud platform.
The interview lasted around 6 hours. I got a verbal offer at the same day after my interview. The overall experience is extremely positive. I can't wait to start my new job!
Interview Question – Load Balancer, AWS. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The offer is extremely generous. I didn't negotiate.
Senior Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at Intuit.
Interview Details – - initial phone call from HR to discuss positions
- was matched up with a manager and had a phone screen that was about 45 minutes long focused on technical questions
- the following week, was flown out for an all day interview that consisted of a combination of technical, business, and social questions.
- there was also a lunch included as well a tour of the facilities
Interview Question – There were a series of questions based on a fictional programming language where you're prompted to create methods based on a series of rules/restrictions. Required ad hoc thinking about how to work within contraints of this made up language. Each subsequent question required expanding further with this language. While the solutions seem very clear after the fact, it was definitely a good mental challenge during that hour. Answer Question
