    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Video interview w/ a senior engineer. He had googled me prior to the interview, which I expected. But I didn't expect he would ask why I chose to pursue software engineering instead of a sports career. Two weeks later, I get invited for an on-site interview at San Jose office. It was half a day, with four or five 1:1 interviews with members of the same team.

    Interview Questions

    • Video interview: Write a function that finds the nth fibonacci number. What is the time/space complexity? Best/worst case scenario?   1 Answer
    • On-site interviews, except the first seemed like they were coming up with questions on the spot. Questions involving best data structures for the challenges the team is currently working on. Got a question on C code since I included it as a programming language on my resume. I had to find and fix an existing bug involving the strcpy function (required an understanding of heap and stack memory in the C language).   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Adobe (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    If you find yourself with an abundance of spare time, I highly recommend interviewing at magento. The stages are endless and nonsensical, and hr will gleefully lie to you about scheduling.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Adobe.

    Interview

    Talked to adobe at career fair and had on campus interview next day which was very easy. Got invited on site for their technical forum. First day is like a mini career fair with 30 teams and after that you rank the teams you want and they rank you and then you get matched with teams to interview with. Some people get 1 match others might get 5. The second day you interview with the teams. The interviews were pretty average compared to other tech companies. But unfortunately each team is usually hiring 1 person so even if you’re good you might not get the job because someone else might be better. I don’t really like this aspect because at most companies they will interview you and if you’re good, you get hired and then they match you to a team. Most companies don’t make you directly compete against other people. Whereas at Adobe, you get matched to a team and may not even get hired if you’re good because your competition might also be good. Heard back next day through a very generic email that I was rejected. The forum is very organized, but the hiring process is not standard as different teams have different requirements. Partially based on luck if you get matched with an easy team and based on who your competition is.
