    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (Seattle, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    After a brief talk at my campus career fair, I interviewed on-campus the next day. The interview went smoothly and the interviewer said I did excellently.

    After 2 weeks, I emailed them wondering about the results. After 3, I emailed again and was finally rejected due to a very competitive process. It was ridiculous that it took 3 weeks and 2 emails to get my rejection. It was a poor experience.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (Seattle, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was recruited through LinkedIn. I had an informational interview with the recruiter followed by a phone interview with the Hiring Manager. I then had a phone interview with the entire team, including the Director. They invited me on site for a follow-up the next business day, during which they mainly talked about the office environment and benefits. I was given a generous offer the next business day, as they wanted me to start immediately. Each step of the way the recruiter or hiring manager followed up within a business day and were very informational about the process.

    Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (Seattle, WA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I had a great phone screen with an engineer from the team who was really passionate about the job. When I came in for an interview almost everyone seemed really excited about the position and engaged--except for one guy who seemed rather disinterested. I was annoyed that they didn't break for lunch. Pro tip: if the interview starts before noon and ends in the afternoon, provide lunch for the candidate. What really annoyed me though is that I didn't hear back from the recruiter for over a month. I sent a polite thank-you card to the hiring manager and recruiter and expected a little more consideration. I was told they'd get back to me within a week and it took over a month. At the very least just check in and let me know that you're looking at a few more candidates before making a decision.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was particularly difficult, although the product manager who interviewed me had some vague/open-ended product design questions--the sort of questions that totally depend on lots of other factors.   Answer Question

    Product Innovation - Software Engineer Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (Seattle, WA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Their recruiter called me, I told him I was interested. We scheduled two quick phone interviews with the same person. They were both 45 minutes each, no coding involved (very surprisingly). I ended up not receiving the offer, I thought it was a standard software engineering one so I studied sorting and searching algorithms... They asked a lot of business related questions and product questions.

    Senior Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (Seattle, WA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    In keeping with Adobe's practical view on the world my interview was focused on culture fit and ability to solve real world problems.

    I didn't get any "how many doorknobs in the city" kind of questions. Instead I had a series of conversations where interviewers probed my ability to solve tough problems they were currently facing (too many features, not enough time, too few resources - you know, the basics).

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was one the interviewers were then struggling with. They were trying to integrate branched codebases in different states for a premature release. I worked with the panel and walked through several possible solutions only to find none worked.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Simple. I worked with HR and was specific about my requirements. HR managed my requirements and expectations professionally.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Adobe (Seattle, WA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Position was for a recent college graduate position on the Digital Production Suite team. I was called by a recruiter at Adobe to come in to interview with the team. It happened on a single day - 5 interview, one hour each, back to back. Everybody I spoke to was extremely friendly and conversational. The position was supposed to be for somebody with a computer science background, but they were intrigued with my degrees in business and math so decided to interview me. Normally, there would have been algorithmic problem solving questions, but since I didn't have the comp. sci. background, they asked me general problem solving questions instead. I didn't hear from them for two weeks so I checked back in with recruiter. He called to tell me that they ultimately went with somebody in computer science.
