    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    An initial phone screen by HR, followed by two phone interviews with team members. Final rounds were 5 back-to-back interviews on campus. I was contacted and told that I did well, but that they were going to give preference to an internal candidate. I didn't want to wait for that process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Unprofessional way of handling candidate.. not even respecting candidate's time. Never expected such an experience with one of the leading company... Too bad
    Interview did not happen as per the schedule.. No proper communication on the plan of conducting interviews..
    Would request HR to review the interview process so that no one should face similar problem as mine.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Simple Process. Recruiter contacted me on LinkedIn, had a skype interview, then an onsite, and then last call with director. Recruiter contacted in the evening with the offer details. The entire process took about 2 weeks.

    More about offer details: I've more then 2 years of professional experience, so I was expecting more salary then what I was getting in my previous company. But the offer was awful and I felt insulted. Firstly, the base salary was less then what I was getting in my previous company, secondly I didn't get any RSU's, and sign-on bonus was non-existent. I was also told that there is little to no bonus structure as well. I didn't know how to even start negotiating my offer as well but when I tried, I was straight away said no, and hence I declined the offer. It was completely awful experience!

    Interview Questions

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Recruiter and HR were awesome. A senior program manager who interviewed me during the final round was extremely unprofessional. Late for 30min and never say a sorry, simply start asking questions unrelated to the job. Have never seen a manager level interviewer with no respect like this. Got the offer and finally decided to reject.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was low ball

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Francisco, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I saw the position open on LinkedIn and cold-emailed a design recruiter a cover letter, portfolio, and resume. The recruiter turned out to be the recruiter for that specific position, and she gave me a call the next day.

    After an initial phone screen with her, I had a 1hr phone call with the hiring manager. After that we scheduled an onsite for a few weeks later. The onsite was around 4-5 hours long with a break scheduled in between; I had a portfolio presentation to 5 people on the team, then several 30-minute 1:1s with a combination of UX, visual, and researchers. One of the sessions was a whiteboarding exercise in which I had around 30 minutes to work through a design challenge. The final 1:1 was a wrap up with the hiring manager to answer any final questions, and we ended up going 30 minutes over the end time- he was super patient and answered all of my questions about the company.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Applied on linkedIn. After 3-4 weeks a technical hr contacted me. One Technical phone screen on skype with lead QA. A few technical questions on automation process, testng, java, selenium and REST API and was asked to solve one coding question . In Second round, I was asked to take a hacker rank test which had 3 coding questions. Third round is onsite interview with 4 ( Engg manager, one Architect, lead QA, one developer). I answered almost all questions. Did not do well for test cases for google spread sheet at system level because that was the last question with the Manager and we ran out of time. For 3 weeks I was in contact with the recruiter to know the feed back and gave up. One day I got call from the recruiter saying that they hired internal candidate. I say its neutral experience because, because they did not select me I tried other companies and got 4 better offers than Autodesk.

    Data Analyst (New Grad) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Rafael, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Rafael, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted approximately a month after submitting my application, and asked to come in for an interview. The two interviewers were friendly and non-agressive, which helped calm my nerves. They encouraged me to use a whiteboard to explain my answers, which also helped. I was asked a full range of questions, none of which were too difficult or tricky.
    I was then contacted via email a month later with an offer.

    Human Resources Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Autodesk.

    Interview

    One phone call from the recruiter. Total jerk. His attitude was that I should be very happy they called and that it was for me to prove my worth. He questioned every role I had on my resume, and not out of curiosity, but out of skepticism. There is nothing like being put on trial for a job interview. He basically proved, to me, that I would not want to work at Autodesk.
