    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Autodesk (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very casual interview process. My interview was by phone. Instead of interviewing with the HR department, you meet the person you would be working under directly should you get an offer.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I was initially contacted via LinkedIn. I had a total of 10 phone interviews and took one project assessment. The assessment was two hours long and involved putting together a quick marketing plan and then presenting it in front of a panel. The interview questions were pretty basic but the process was slow.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I got an email from a recruiter. They had an initial interview, then i had an interview with the hiring manager over the phone. It was during Nov, so it was over 2 months before they could bring me in because they were busy with Autodesk University, and also their offices close for 2 weeks during the holidays. In Jan, I went in for a face to face interview with about 5 people. I also had some additional phone interviews with people that I wasn't able to meet with in person. Finally also had a skype interview with my managers' manager. I got an offer after a couple of days of meeting with the director.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Autodesk (Denver, CO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Short phone interview with Autodesk recruiter, straightforward and no trap (tell me about yourself, why this position, shy Autodesk etc.). Then met with three managers in group and individually. The interview process was laid back.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Autodesk (Boston, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was first a phone interview to discuss the opportunity with the hiring manager and then another positive interview with someone on his team. I was impressed with the company and enjoyed the discussions with the interviewers.

    What really surprised me though was the lack of follow up. I was surprised that I didn't hear back after the interview, one way or another about moving forward with another interview. Three months later I received an email from another Autodesk hiring manager (that the first hiring manager recommended me) for another opportunity. This experience had a much better follow up by the hiring manager/Autodesk but the salary range just wasn't the right fit.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Recruiter, hiring manager, then six onsite meetings. People were nice, asked a lot of technical questions but seemed to want to know about how I would fit into the team and the company. Shared some of my work onsite, had a chance to meet with one of the VPs. Overall the process was pretty smooth, and none of the questions were too hard. But I did feel like the more senior people were skeptical of someone from the outside who had as much experience as I do, and they seemed kind of threatened

    I applied online. I interviewed at Autodesk.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screener, applied via linkedin. Standard interview, got a callback which was via skype around 3 weeks later. Spoke to 4 people, including a prior legal intern who is now working full-time there (although this is a rarity). Didn't get the position, but everyone was nice and there was nothing meant to intimidate you.
