Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Francisco, CA) in June 2017.

Interview

Phone screen with a coding exercise for 45 min to an hour then followed by an onsite.I was very disappointed by the interviewer as he seem to have a ego problem as i already knew the answer in advance for his problem.. Its unfortunate that such egoistic interviewers are hurdle in getting your job.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Francisco, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    There is no formal interview process guideline. It depends on the group you are interviewing with. If there is no one in the group who is an expert on the subject you are interviewing for, there won't be anyone to ask you questions about it. You would not get an interviewer who knows about the subject from another group. The hardness of your interview is dependent on who is on your group.

    Interview

    1.Questions were being asked in order to show that the one who was interviewing knows more. Every valid answer ( not the one interviewer wanted to hear) was sarcastically being turned down.

    2. Interviewer were laughing after asking me to take a look at question. They passed smirks and maintained it during entire interview.

    3. Interviewers looked like they entered with intention to not hire .

    4. From an entire code on the board, software architect found issue with use of this.var instead of this->var like it is the biggest issue in programming.( I guess they have never used languages like Java, and only used one language C++).

    5. No questions from DS, Algo,Design,Prototyping for a senior position. Rather they were concerned with constructors only. I could later find they quickly referred some IBM questions and pasted as is in last moment.

    Such kind of environment can only demotivate and kill your energy during interview. If this is the work culture there,i would not recommend anyone to apply there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Autodesk (Tel Aviv-Yafo (Israel)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    It started with a phone call and going over the cv, then personal interview with tech question with the team leader and someone else from the team, home exercise (although I heard not everyone get it as they have trouble requiting and trying to just take anyone that accept), and finally there was an HR interview with someone truly unpleasant, but she really tried.

    Interview Questions

    • Tech questions for mobile were a joke, it looks like the team lead has no tech background what so ever. The HR person had normal personal questions about the CV, personal life, military, personal status, etc. Some of them are illegal to ask but what can you do   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Autodesk in October 2009.

    Interview

    They were quite professional in the way whole interview was conducted. There were different group - I guess each group was comprised of people of a particular skills set. Questions were quite to-the-point instead of being theoretical - call it situational question, the ones that arise out of discussion.
