    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Adobe in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I talked on the phone with a recruiter and then with a former manager in the team. Both people I spoke to were very nice and I found our conversations interesting. However, the process itself was very disorganized. Without explaining it, from the first call to the second, they had changed me as a candidate to a different position. And when I asked for information about this new position, the person didn't really know what was going on. And then I never heard back from either of them. Nice people, but very unprofessional.
