I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Workday in June 2013.
Interview Details – Interview #1 - with recruiter by phone, round #2 - with hiring manager by phone - to assess subject matter expertise in area. round #3 - on site with hiring manager and 5 others, including case study on design of a product feature. round #4 - 6 more senior execs.
I have been through a lot of silicon valley interviews - too many software companies are run by people who think very highly of themselves and use interviews to torture prospects and see who survives. Workday actually wanted to get to know me, rather than torture me. Every step of the process was extremely friendly and professional.
Workday is looking for people who can think and are fun to work with, not recite methodology or show a pedigree of degrees and silicon valley brand names on your CV.
I knew I loved the company when this became evident during the interview process.
Joined a month ago and I love the company even more now that I am on the inside.
I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Workday.
Interview Details – I had 3 calls. The first was with the recruiter, and the 2nd and third were with current PMs, and they focused on making sure you understood the responsibilities of a PM and knew what to do in certain situations, discussing previous work experience, etc. Then I went in for a set of in-person interviews (I believe 5 in total), and they ended up focusing mostly on making sure you fit the company culture (i.e. really smart and really friendly) rather than how to be a PM. Make sure you always have great, relevant questions to ask, because a lot of the time is spent actually asking them questions. The entire experience was really phenomenal, and I definitely understand why people absolutely love working there.
