    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (San Francisco, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me within a few days of submitting my application. The next week I had one in-person interview with the person who would be my manager, and the following week I had one phone interview with two peer colleagues from the team I'd be working on. Then I heard nothing for four weeks so I finally contacted the recruiter and was told that they hired someone else.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe in April 2014.

    Interview

    Initial contact was quick, and I had a total of 5 interviews. This took place over the phone, and there was no face-to-face interview. Process took a bit longer as I wanted to, and I wasn't given an official offer till I verbally accepted the position. Constantly had to reach out to the recruiter to get a reply, but response was fast.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The only disappointment was that the package was lower than what was initially discussed during the first call with the recruiter. They said Finance got the number wrong.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    Plan on having numerous interviews. Decision is based on consensus which may prolong the process due to analysis paralysis. Expect long pauses in communication to let you know where you stand. Just because you get an offer, doesn't mean you get the job. There have been times when the offer was rescinded due to a hiring freeze imposed between the time you accepted the offer and your start date.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared to say what your role was and your actually contribution, not just what "we" did. Plan on being asked how you deal with ambiguity when given a task. Expect to know how to navigate through the silos to get tasks done. Be prepared to give examples of this from previous jobs.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Aim high, expect a lower offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Adobe (San Francisco, CA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a 3rd party recruiter for a contract position. The recruiter found my resume online. I had an initial conversation with the recuriter that lasted about 25 minutes. The job requirements were very generic. My resume was forwarded to the hiring manager and a 45 minute phone screening with the hiring manager was scheduled for the following week. The interviewer was 25 minutes late for the call. When I did speak to her, she did not ask if I wanted to reschedule. She provided a brief overview of the position and the composition of her team. The interview only lasted 20 minutes as she had a hard stop in order to prep for her next meeting.
