    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Recruited by a colleague with whom I worked at a previous employer. Initial phone screen by hiring manager, followed by a full day of in-person interviews, 30-45 minutes each, 9 total, including the head of HR and the Director of Engineering (reported to COO). They bought me lunch on site and gave me a tour of the campus.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions and none that stood out as difficult. Pretty standard behavior, goals and strength/weaknesses type questions. Some programming quiz type questions, like, describe how you would synchronize the classic one-lane bridge problem: What's the shared resource? How would you make the scheduler fair? What data structure would you use to maintain the arrival order of cars waiting to enter the bridge?   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    I'm a tough negotiator and so were they. I asked for the moon in salary, they, very professionally, said no without any beating around the bush, which I appreciated, and countered with an overall compensation package, which included profit sharing bonuses, equity, and 401k matching.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was a part of the internship fair. They had me send in a resume which they printed 20+ copies of (black and white). The room was set up similarly to a career fair, a different team at each table. I spent the first day distributing resumes and pitching myself (be prepared to do so). Then the teams are rated by you, and you are rated by the teams. Some mysterious process occurs in which mutual highly rated matches were set up for interviews on Day 2. I interviewed with 3 teams. One of the three teams presented me a technical questions in the form of a programming assignment. Another of the three teams asked me general technical questions. The last only asked me behavioral questions.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Adobe in March 2008.

    - 3 written tests of 45 minutes each on 1) C/C++ 2) Algorithm/datastructures 3) quantitative analysis kills.

    - followed by 4 round of interviews.

    - the interview questions were fundamental however, the interviewers are more interested in looking at the code i wrote on while board rather than thinking process. Only one of the interviewer specifically targeting checking my thought process.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Adobe (Noida) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Pathetic experience with these pathetic people having cheap attitude I was excited to go there because of the products I have known, but when I was there talking to these individuals(absent minded, no value for other's time, no respect for candidates , Self-centered, Arrogant), I have lost all my respect
    The whole interview procedure is not about assessing the candidates based on his/her skill, but it's about satisfying the ego of self proclaimed experts who have fixed answers in their mind from websites and if your answer(code) is not matching, you are wrong. If you ask why, no fact or explanation is required.

    I don't understand what these guys are so boastful about If they come on the other side of the table they will not be able to answer the same level of questions. They are so disrespectful the moment you disagree if they say something is not right....so it doesn't matter what the fact is, just because they say it's wrong it's wrong.

    HR has only one role, convey the message, they don't bother how candidate are being treated. This Company is good only on pages and website, when it comes to

    Interview Questions

    • 1st Round:
      1. Interviewer said he didn't have my resume so he wants me to tell him about my career, but he has no interest in listening, no eye contact(busy doing something on his laptop)
      2. inorder traversal of Binary tree without using recursion
      3. to write set/get method for LRU
      4. How to cover N-steps using 1/2 steps at a time

      The interviewer has fixed questions and answers memorized and if you are thinking and writing the code, he is not interested. He wants you to write code in a jiffy(5-10mins). He will keep giving you the look as if what is there to think.

      For Q3, my code was right, but since I used(iterator for list) an unordered_map<int, pair<list<int>::iterator, int>>, without even going through the code he says it won't work, because iterator cannot be used. Because he wanted me to use "node* ", a linked list using C-type implementation.

      There is no end of learning algorithms, and if some bunch of moron thinks they have learnt enough and know everything do a little thing called self-assessment and you will know where you stand.

      2nd Round: I was asked to provide the design and implement the code for a game "Minesweeper", as I didn't know much about this game so I asked to provide more details, the interviewer just shown me by playing it once.

      This was so superb, I have seen her playing the game and I needed to complete the SDLC cycle in next 15-30 mins, I have written the code using assumption of course(as no constraints was being shared), but this was not even before I started.....God bless you guys....you are remarkably talented. Hope these are the kind of code used in your projects(running all your product)   Answer Question
