    Digital Strategist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process took a month. I applied through my university's job portal and was then contacted to sign up for an interview slot (first come first serve for those who received the message). I'll break it down in bullets to make it easier:

    First round: Talked to 2 people and basically just went over my resume. Super casual and had a networking/ mingling dinner afterwards with the rest of my university's applicants. The dinner was more conversational and we touched upon technology trends and companies we liked. Heard back after a week for the second round which was an on-site.

    Second round: Went to SJ for an all-day onsite. Consisted of 2 30 minute 1:1 interviews. One asked a lot of questions about my latest internship (probably to see how I work my way to solutions and deal with problems) and the other was more conversational. Talked mainly about my studies and what I find interesting about my majors. Both are super lax. There was also a 20 minute high level presentation we had to prepare a deck for and present to a panel. We got the prompt 4 days before. Super fun process and everyone was super engaged and attentive. Got the offer after 3 days.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process was fast. I applied through my university's career site and the next day I was contacted to sign up for an on-campus interview. I spoke with one person at school followed by a networking happy hour with the other applicants. I heard back that night that I would be moving on to the final round. They brought us to their headquarters in San Jose the following week for an all-day interview forum. This included presenting to a panel on a case study we were given a few days before and 2 30-minute interviews. I was then contacted a few days later with an offer.

    Pretty standard interview, there was a panel of people I met with, included lunch with them and general conversation. There were some long pauses via email between the different steps of the process, was one drawback.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Adobe (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I dropped my resume at Adobe at a university career fair and got an on-campus interview the next day morning. A senior software engineer interviewed me, he was easy to chat with and seemed prepared for the interview. I didn't expect that the interview does not involve any algorithmic questions (which I spent a night preparing), but with four system-design-like questions. It took a week to know they decided to move on with other candidates.

    Technical Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Initially, you will have a generic HR screening. Then for the second round, you will have a phone interview with two people one being a consultant manager and another person who is a lead on the team. The manager will get a feel for your technical background and the lead will ask you STAR based situation questions. The final round consists of you flying out to San Francisco to their office unless you live there already. There were 12 candidates and you had three more interviews one with a consultant manager, senior architect lead and a technical consultant themselves. The consultant manager and technical consultant will ask you technical questions. You will solve code and explain what's going on. (Java and Java script) The questions are not entirely difficult. If you look over syntax and rules for them you'll be fine. The Senior Architect will ask three business questions that are real life-based. You will have to study up the adobe marketing cloud to fully answer these questions. Make sure you do your homework.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Adobe in January 2017.

    Interview

    A few rounds of phone interviews and some delays due to fiscal year ends should not discourage you. Adobe is a massive company and administrative gears take a while to turn, but turn they do.
