    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Workday (Irvine, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by a recruiting associate who had found my LinkedIn profile. It was a brief, under 15 minute chat about the role, compensation and location. In the end, the recruiter referred my resume to a senior recruiter for a more in-depth interview. The senior recruiter did a good job of reviewing my experience against the open position. Ultimately, they decided to pursue other candidates who may have a more in-depth accounting background or who were accountants by profession.

    Interview

    I had an on-campus interview, and then about 2 weeks later I got the final interview invitation to go on site. The onsite interview composes for 4 interviews in which 2 of them are technical and 2 are behavioral. I thought the interviewers were very nice and the interviews went well, but I did not get an offer. My recruiter called me and told me that I am not offered and I thought that was very good of Workday to do this. I recommend interviewing with Workday, because Workday is doing great things.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Workday (Tacoma, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied at college fair and interviewed in person the next day. I was told about the company by recruiters at the college fair, and it seemed like they were giving interviews to anyone to handed them a resume. They were very polite and professional during all times. Compared to other interviews for similar positions the interviewer was rather unclear on what he wanted from me as far as the problem goes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Workday (Pleasanton, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Had a referral and talked to them at the career fair. Ended up having an on campus interview for an applications developer position, which I didn't want to do because you only develop in their proprietary language. Told the interviewer that, and heard back a few weeks later from a recruiter in regards to my referral.

    This now was for an intern position on the tooling side. Set up an interview with a senior manager, in which the manager called me late (I had to email the recruiters asking if he was going to call, and I suppose they had to remind him). That interview went ok, but the manager seemed very disinterested during the whole thing. Finished the interview which lasted about 20 min, then got an email about 2 weeks later asking for a final technical phone interview.

    The final technical phone interview was with a software engineer, and started with some trivia questions about Java, then went into a coding question (all verbal describing approach, no coding). I thought I did well on this part, but apparently not. Heard back from the recruiter about 1.5 weeks later saying no offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Workday (Pleasanton, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was thorough. I was phone-interviewed by the recruiter, who then asked for work samples from me. After that, I phone-interviewed by the hiring manager, who gave me a pretty involved writing assignment. That was a success, and then I was invited in to the office for 6 in-person interviews (1 recruiter and 5 from the department/partner departments).

    Interview

    I gave my resume to a recruiter at a campus career fair and was invited to on-campus interviews a few days later. The interview was 30 min and behavioral. Was asked very typical behavioral questions, e.g. tell me about yourself, what do you hope to get out of this internship, questions about my classes/extracurriculars/projects, and what I know about the company/position. Currently waiting for a response.
