    University Recruiting Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Intuit (San Jose, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Poor interviewing experience. Had 1+ hour phone interviews with a recruiter and the hiring manager and never heard a word back. Followed up with the recruiter 30 days after the 2nd phone interview and she responded that the hiring manager was still trying to decide if the position could be remote and had I given any thought to how that would work (I was a local candidate so the recruiter was clearly confusing me with another candidate).

    Got the call for interview after applying through my university career fair.
    There were 2 rounds, first one was behavioral and second was technical. The recruiter shared the material to read for the behavioral round, so it was pretty much clear on how to approach for such interviews. Technical round was not very difficult, it went smooth.

    Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intuit (San Jose, CA) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter who was not at all knowledgeable in this area. She didn't even know companies such as Sybase or heard of QA tools like QTP, WinRunner. She was only interested in numbers, how many years you did this and that? Not interested in knowing what I did, only needed answers to her typed set of questions.
    No call after this. Maybe the best way to get pass this level and reach actual hiring parties is to say the numbers that they like.
