    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was recommended by a company member. The member talks to me first and asks me some backgrounds. Then he said to me that he would contact me in a week. After one week, two research data scientists contact me and ask me some technical questions including my research topics, statistics, and coding techniques. The process is technical but I think they care more about research ability.

    Interview Questions

    • Q1: tell about your research topics and what is the difference between your methods and classic methods   1 Answer
    • Q2: What kind of coding language you use in handling large-scale dataset.   1 Answer

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Adobe.

    Interview

    Bad unprofessional behavior from recruiters. I went through referral. My friend referred my profile and recruiter from adobe contacted me. I gave my availability and I postponed one of my interview as recruiter confirmed that I will be getting call on that week. Then introduced other guy who would be coordinating my interview. But after that no reply, no interview call for 3 weeks. They did not even reply to my followup mail.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was a part of the internship fair. They had me send in a resume which they printed 20+ copies of (black and white). The room was set up similarly to a career fair, a different team at each table. I spent the first day distributing resumes and pitching myself (be prepared to do so). Then the teams are rated by you, and you are rated by the teams. Some mysterious process occurs in which mutual highly rated matches were set up for interviews on Day 2. I interviewed with 3 teams. One of the three teams presented me a technical questions in the form of a programming assignment. Another of the three teams asked me general technical questions. The last only asked me behavioral questions.
