    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter call, followed by peer than hiring manager. The process was standard but the hiring manager call was basically something to the extent where the manager had concerns if I had the experience for this role after a long conversation.

    Huh ...

    Didn't he read my resume?

    It almost baffles me why someone would waste their time, or my time when you know the resume basically tells it all. Hopefully the other hiring managers are a bit smarter than this.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Adobe.

    Interview

    The interview process was typical but long. I had interviews with: an intake interview with the recruiter, hiring manager, peers (3), associated manager, hiring manager's boss, on-site interview. One thing that impressed me was that everyone I talked to had reviewed my resume, knew the role, and were reconciling the two. No one seemed to have a list of questions from HR - they all had their own questions and the interviews were basically performed in a conversational way. Very situational.

    Word of warning: be prepared that if they give you an offer, they will request a background check that includes asking for proof of employment and current salary. I don't believe that you are required to supply your current salary (W2 or Paystub) but I was concerned that it would impact whether I received an offer. I don't know either way because I supplied the information.

    Also, the salary negotiation was different than I am used to. Normally, I state up front what my salary requirements / desires are and they make an offer. Adobe asked me the standard up-front salary questions, but when it was time for the offer they held a conversation and asked me "now that you've talked to everyone and understand the job requirements, where do you see your salary for this position?" It threw me because I'm not used to giving the number first at the offer. But I held firm, provided rationale, and received my requested salary.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through internal referral. Got a response from recruiter after one week. The whole process took about three weeks. The first round was conducted via phone, where focused on CS fundamentals, project deep dive, and medium coding questions. Then the on-site was at San Jose office. I basically interviewed by four different teams. Much of questions are typical coding exercises. They care more about your personality and culture fit. I got an oral offer from the recruiter three days afterwards.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Adobe in May 2017.

    Interview

    Their sourcer reached out to me about I position. I replied that I was interested and she scheduled a call with the recruiter for the position. The recruiter no showed the call. I let the sourcer know that the call did not happen and asked if they needed to reschedule. No response.

    The experience left me with negative impression of Adobe since their recruiters did not conduct themselves with either professionialism or common courtesy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Adobe (Boston, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, heard back pretty quickly via email, scheduled phone interview. Pretty basic phone screen, asked if I had much experience in SQL and Tableau, which I honestly answered with not really but willing to learn. Most of my experience was in Python. Probably not what they were looking for I guess as I didn't pass this phone screen.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR and responded promptly with my availability. The HR representative didn't respond and I had to check in again. It took two weeks to have an interview with the hiring manager, and they didn't respond to me for 18 days after that. They were going to have an in-person interview on-site but somehow forgot that I wasn't a local candidate, so they decided to set up the interview as video and allegedly would bring me on site following that. After the 2 hour long video interview, I was told I would hear back in a week. After a little over two weeks, I didn't receive any word and decided to check in with the HR representative because I received an offer from another company–I asked for an update on my candidacy and a timeline. She didn't respond with the information I requested and instead congratulated me on the offer, thanked me for the time I spent with them, and said we could keep in contact for future positions. I was annoyed that after 8 weeks, she couldn't formally explicate that they filled the position and were not going to be moving forward. I asked her to clarify, but never received a response.
