    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Adobe.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter from Adobe. Had a call with a recruiter and then the hiring manager within the week and then 2 more team members by the following week. Was flown out to NY to present a product of choice to a panel of 3 team members which included the hiring manager. The team members asked questions as if they would have been a prospect in a meeting. Overall, the process took about 3-4 weeks. The recruiters and hiring manager were great to work with and were transparent and timely throughout the entire process.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Adobe (Bengaluru (India)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview Experience @ Adobe was pathetic. They call the candidates @ 10:45 am .
    It was around 1:15pm and still not even a single round was done. Candidates are waiting in the Meeting room. The HRs are busy roaming here and there but not sure what they were doing.
    At 1:15pm they come and tell us to go for lunch. The Interviewers has also gone for lunch. It was like the Adobe Interviewers has just come that day for Lunch @ office. The experience was bad.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Adobe in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through an agency and was contacted same day to discuss my current situation, salary expectations etc. A couple of days back and forth and then I had an interview.

    The recruiter told me I'd be meeting a more senior person than the person I actually met. That was embarrassing at reception when I checked in.

    The person I met had a very strong accent (English was not his mother tongue) I found his diction difficult to understand and he spoke in an overly excitable manner (which added to that difficulty)

    He asked a few good questions to start. Then he asked me a question on what I would do in a certain situation and he didn't like my answer. His question was subjective and completely dependent on company culture and relationship with the person you support. He couldn't seem to move past this question. I believe if he was at the level where he would have had his own EA, he wouldnt have asked the question. I'm not sure what the relevance was.

    Eventually, it was my turn to ask the questions and after clarifying a couple of things I wanted to know about the role and the person I would be supporting, I asked what he enjoyed about working at Adobe. I was soon sorry I did. He rambled on and on about how many degrees he had and how much he achieved in the short time he was in his own role. His response went on an inappropriate length of time, to the point where I completely glazed over. (which I am certain reflected badly)

    I'm so disappointed I didn't have the opportunity to interview with someone from HR, the current EA or the person who the role would be supporting.

    Over 2 weeks have passed and I've had nothing but silence. Very disappointing from a company of Adobe's stature. Such a shame, as I think it could have been a totally different interview under different circumstances and I was so pleased to have had opportunity to interview, but I feel short changed.
