    Interview

    Firstly they asked me to introduce my self and then they asked the questions on data structures and algorithms and then on my projects and subjects. They are fully expecting the knowledge of how we are applying data structures for a given problem.

    Senior User Experience Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Informatica (San Jose, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Worst phone interview experience with the design head. I usually wouldn’t say this, especially about ux design interviews, because you always learn something. But this one was unusually awful. The interviewer was extremely disinterested and couldn’t seem to care less. Felt like he was constantly typing. Complete waste of his time and mine.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Informatica.

    Interview

    I initially had a call with the recruiter m. Asked pretty basic questions about my experience. Then had a first coding round with pretty basic questions. I did pretty well. I have got a call for the second round and HR didn’t have me heads up regarding anything that I should have eclipse or any new IDE set up for the call. I simple didn’t had anything set up in my system, since it’s my person laptop which I was on. I have asked the interviewer if we could reschedule the interview. Looks like he was fine with it. After two days recruiter emailed me with the standard thing saying they are forwarding with the new candidate.

    Overall it was a complete negative experience.

    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Informatica (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contacted by the recruiter. A bit of unprofessional shown when I was asked to reveal my current salary. I did not.

    Followed by technical screen where in I was asked theory questions on Java which is very strange for a role like this. I was also asked a coding question for which the interviewer was not ready to answer any followup questions from me. Besides that he was terse and rude at some point completely dismissing my thought process.

    I answered almost all the questions correctly except some college level theory questions which should be asked for high-school pop quizzes.
    At the end of the interview, I asked the interviewer about a division in Informatica which is mentioned in their website and he clearly indicated with utmost confidence that informatica does not do that. This showed that he had no clue what is going on in the company.

    I did not follow up with the recruiter as I had not intention of wasting a day to face this level of unprofessionalism onsite.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Informatica (Round Rock, TX) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Typical phone screen, followed by a phone interview with a sales manager. The next step was an on-site interview with two sales managers and a department director. Overall the process took less that two weeks. I had mentioned in my on-site that I was actively seeking employment and had multiple ongoing interview processes with other company to which Informatica was very accommodating and quick in getting an offer to me.

    Interview

    Avoid Informatica:

    If possible avoid informatica, I had very bad experience with them, same now happened to my friend.There is a principal recruiter who don’t know how to talk, very rude , someone already mentioned his name on glassdoor
    Scenario 1 : Completed telephonic and 6 onsite interview loop, after that this recruiter called and informed that he received 4 round feedback and it is positive , let me know the expectation. After receiving the expectations, he called within 30 minutes that remaining 2 rounds feedback are negative so we are not proceeding.Although all my interview round went pretty well.
    Scenario 2 : After applied to informatica, this recruiter called and started talking rudely that, “do you know anything about informatica or applied randomly” before giving other person chance to start replying. Anyways after completing telephonic and 6 onsite rounds, this recruiter called and informed that all rounds feedback is positive and they wanted to move ahead with offer and asked for expectation. After telling him the expectation, he immediately started trying to cancel the call , even after I was saying that I am ready to negotate, he said he will check again and never came back .After following up on mail he replied that we are interviewing other candidates, this is so unprofessional.

    The question is why they normally bring the people onsite and wasting their time by taking 6-7 round whole day, if their plan is just to take candidates based on lower TC and not on talent.If thats the case just take 2-3 rounds and select the candidate.
    The interviewers in both the time were good and talented but highly disappointed with the recruitment process of informatica.
    Summary: If your TC expectations are above average, don't even try to waste your time by giving 6-7 rounds, they will never give you an offer no matter how good your interview went.

    Interview

    It was decent. There was both technical and a general round. The technical is as expected. The general round is usually the hardest as to reason you are looking for change.
