    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Informatica (Redwood City, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I went through two phone screens and then moved into an on-site interview with the manager I would be working under. I also was asked to provide work samples. Painless and quick. Within two weeks I heard back from the recruiter with an offer. Everyone I spoke to (on the phone and in-person) were amiable and easy to talk to. It was a really positive experience. Even if I hadn't gotten the offer I would have reapplied to Informatica upon graduation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Informatica.

    Interview

    Applied through school career center website and also talked to recruiters during career fair. Got an on campus interview within 10 days. The interview is pretty short, only 60 minutes. The guy who conducted the interview was from the head quarter and has been a software engineer for 20 years. The question he asked was about is pretty easy. It was about Binary Search Tree Traverse. How to do it recursively and iteratively.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Informatica in December 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy interview but the interviewer was unprepared! The interviewer didn't greet me and had no idea about the status of my application. He also just hung up after we were done without saying anything but 'Bye'. I solved the questions really fast and when I was done it seemed like he was googling random questions and asking me. Was shocked when I didn't get an offer because I thought I did really well.
