    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Intuit (Mountain View, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was asked to prepare a presentation on a topic. First 90 minutes was discussion with a panel of 4 people. Most of the questions were around the presentation, but it covered a number of the topics (security, web design, database design). After that - several one-on-one discussions for 45 minutes each. Some were quite technical questions related to complex fraud processing design, scaling, caching. Some had to do with team dynamics.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Intuit in November 2016.

    Interview

    Its a cluster. Very inconsistent and confusing. I had over five people in contact with me serving as recruiters and it was extremely confusing. They had to re-write my offer three times because they keep messing it up. The interviews themselves were good and the engineer was great.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Intuit (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    The process was pretty standard. A recruiter call, followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager. The final round was a ~4 hr in-person interview with approximately 5 people. Intuit requires an ~20-minute "craft demo" in which you showcase your problem-solving skills as they would apply to the role specifically.

    Interview

    I applied online directly with Intuit on a Friday and was immediately sent some assessments to complete on call center/customer service/computer skills and behavior decisions. I passed them both bc I was called on Monday for a phone interview with the recruiter. She set me up an in person interview with a manager for Wens. Mostly STAR method questions. Easy going conversation on past experience and skills. No trick questions. Went over the role and expectations. I was called within a few hours and offered the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Intuit in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick; the whole thing took about 3 days from initial contact to offer. I had one in-person interview and received the offer the same day. Reading the other reviews on Glassdoor was very helpful to me in preparing; they asked a lot of the OOP questions I saw on here that I otherwise wouldn't have thought to prepare for.

    Interview Questions

    • Some questions about OOP and Java, and a CTCI data structures question.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Intuit (Woodland Hills, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Quick phone interview with lead went well. Asked me to come in for an in-person interview with the lead developers and then the architect and finally the manager. Asked to prepare a small craft project for the interview. Spent probably 8 hrs on a great PHP site which was perfect for a small website, only to be told it needed to be in Java. The requirements also specify a login so I did a basic email login but they actually wanted full authentication and session management which was also not specified. Similarly I was asked by HR to prepare a 20 min talk but the hiring manager did not seem interested in hearing the presentation. They said I had a week and should have spent a lot longer on the craft project. After a 30 min interview I don't see how anyone could justify spending 2 or 3 days on an interview project. Need to get HR and the hiring manager on the same page regarding the requirements and the interview process. Please just specify the technologies to use and it will be done, or if you want people to choose the right tool for the job then the solution will not be in Java.

    Interview Questions

    • No behavioral questions, no whiteboard coding, no difficult algorithm questions, no OOP design questions. Just basic stuff regarding technology and previous experience.   1 Answer
