    Interview

    I applied at the career fair. I had an on campus interview. The interviewer was nice. We talked about my project in the beginning. Then I was asked three coding questions. The first one was about BST. The second one was about a self-balanced tree. The third one was about swapping pages. I did not get any offer. They have a very big department in India.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Informatica (Austin, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    About 2-3 weeks after I submitted my resume I received a call from an internal recruiter, Mary. She was personable & professional. We had a 30 min phone interview & an in person interview was scheduled with a couple of the dept managers. Everyone was friendly, and genuine. After 2 great meetings with a manager & director, I learned the role I interviewed for was filled, but they had another role I was a fit for. I had a phone interview with the manager of that team. I felt very comfortable & at ease with all 3 interviewers. The recruiter was communicative & followed up in timely manner. One of the best interview experiences I've ever had.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Informatica (Redwood City, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is pretty relaxed and enjoyable. Usually, you'll be presented with a online test followed by a phone screening interview. This interview should be a blend of questions on your resume, few knowledge based questions and coding questions. The interviewer would be more interested in your problem solving approach so try to vocalize the approach before starting to code. If, this goes fine. they'll fly you to Redwood City for a on-site almost a day-long interview. I had series of 5 interviewers interviewing me each with different domain of questions.

    Expect questions on basic data structures, algorithms, design questions and that should be all mostly.

    Fine. Very behavioral. Interviewer called almost immediately after I said that I was interested in the position. Went through job description and discussed my personality.

    I never got a response, even after an email followup 30 days later :(

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Informatica in October 2015.

    Interview

    I talked to Informatica at my college's job fair. A few week later I was asked to do a coding challenge on Hackerrank. They were 3 easy technical problems as a basic screening. About 3 weeks later they responded to schedule a phone+googledoc interview with a QA manager. The interviewer was extremely difficult to understand and did a bad job explaining the problem. Although I tried my best to extract exactly what was being asked, I misunderstood a simple problem as a something else and wasted an incredible amount of time trying to solve the wrong thing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Informatica (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Did an on-campus interview with Informatica at IU. This went well. Basic interview questions to start with. Why would you be an ideal candidate? Tell me about a project the went wrong. and so on. Then there was a chance to ask them questions. I asked about things like the culture and the travel time. Do your research but dont be too nervous.
    Then I was asked to go to Chicago to do an onsite interview. They paid expenses. This was a whole morning process. There was 3 separate interviews. A rotation of sorts. They all asked general questions but then each had some interesting things to say. I had one rude and negative guy and two nice and pleasant guys. Not sure if this was a tactic on their part or an actual personality trait of that man. But the interviews went well. They called me 2 weeks later and offered the job.
