    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Workday.

    Interview Details

    Interview at on-campus career fair, then was scheduled to come on-site to for interviews. Had 4 interviews of around 45 mins each, with lunch provided. Overall, relatively easy interview. Some talk about items on my resume, and actually had some pretty interesting conversations related to items on it. All interviewers were very friendly, and I felt comfortable through the entire process.

    HCM Instructor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Workday.

    Interview Details

    A "somewhat" lengthy interview process between Recruiter and Hiring Managers.

    A lot of redundant questions that were not all that different from other companies.

    Different expectations and direction from both Recruiter and Hiring Managers as to what was going to be "covered" during the interview process. i.e., what will be asked by each interviewer.

    Multiple phone interviews spread out over weeks. That was somewhat frustrating since most unemployed people do not have disposable income to fancy months of interviewing time. This process could have been more organized and consolidated since there were multiple interviews with the same interviewers. A bit of "arrogance" in the importance of their time verses any possible hardship on the other end of the process.

    In-person interviews at multiple locations with the same (and a few additional) interviewers.

    I was asked to come up with an "ambiguous presentation" for one interview session. Very open ended request (which I took as the actual "test") but I like those type of challenging tasks so that went very well.

    Take a lot of notes and do your homework on your interviewers.

    Keep track of the questions they are asking and stay true to yourself and your answers. I can only surmise the redundancies are somehow linked to making sure you are giving the same answers and presenting the same values to everyone in the process.

    Interview Questions
    • Only one interview question stood out and it wasn't actually that "out of the norm". I was asked what was most important to me from a "management" perspective.   View Answer

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Workday.

    Interview Details

    Only had a 45 minutes on-campus interview. Not too hard. Just basic questions. Probably because it was just a pre-select interview and it was for internship. Interviewer was very friendly and it was a pleasant experience.

    Anonymous Employee in Pleasanton, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Workday in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Was setup to have a phone interview. The female called me 10 minutes late from a cell phone. Sounded like she was on the road and was not taking any notes.
    She told me liked me and would reach back out, but has not done so. Tried emailing her a few times with no response. Unprofessional.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Workday.

    Interview Details

    Talked to a representative at my college career fair. I was asked for an initial interview that same day which had no technical questions. I was then invited to an all day interview on their campus with four different interviewers. Most interviewers were quite easy to talk to, but one guy gave off a bit of a cold vibe that was off putting. I was told I would receive some kind of communication that I did or did not have an offer, but never received anything.
