    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Standard recruiter call. Non standard process where I have to solve a take home problem and return it in a week; as opposed to an hour of a pair programming exercise.
    Recruiter was all nice until I gave in my submission after spending 2 full days on it. No reply ever since (have sent 4 follow up emails). Extremely unprofessional, idiotic and a complete waste of my time.
    Will be personally making sure none of my friends ever interviews with this Company again, there are a bunch of options in the Silicon valley and a company that does not treat its interviewees well; does not treat its employees well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Adobe (Lehi, UT (US)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Getting the interview was the hardest, there were positions open, however it took forever to get the recruiters to call back. This was even with an employee referral, where eventually the referrer had to bypass the recruiter and give my resume straight to the manager.
    The people employed at Adobe, however, are incredible and friendly. So great to work with.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (Seattle, WA (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    After a brief talk at my campus career fair, I interviewed on-campus the next day. The interview went smoothly and the interviewer said I did excellently.

    After 2 weeks, I emailed them wondering about the results. After 3, I emailed again and was finally rejected due to a very competitive process. It was ridiculous that it took 3 weeks and 2 emails to get my rejection. It was a poor experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Adobe (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I dropped my resume at Adobe at a university career fair and got an on-campus interview the next day morning. A senior software engineer interviewed me, he was easy to chat with and seemed prepared for the interview. I didn't expect that the interview does not involve any algorithmic questions (which I spent a night preparing), but with four system-design-like questions. It took a week to know they decided to move on with other candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Adobe (San Jose, CA (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied during an on-campus hiring event. They called up the same evening to set up 1:1 on-campus first interview.
    Once i got through, i was invited to the Adobe Career fair in San Jose. There, i was able to meet a lot of teams with open positions available, and i had to select the teams i thought would be a good fit for me. The teams also selected candidates who they think are a good fit, and when there is a match, an interview is scheduled. I was selected by two teams and notified that night. The interviews were scheduled for the next day.

    Interview Questions

    • I had 3 rounds totally:
      1) On campus round: a 45 min interview just one day after applying at the college career fair. the interview was very chilled out, he asked a few background and resume based questions. then he asked a OOD question about design a system for elevators. we spend about 30 mins on that going deeper into the details gradually.
      2) 2 on-site rounds after the teams selection: 50 mins each
      i) First team : basic background questions and resume questions. Then i was asked to write java code to check whether or not a string had balanced parentheses or not. It started off as a simple problem and gradually they added further restrictions.
      ii) Second team: Went deep into java basics, data structures, collections, recursion, time and space complexities. i was asked to write the recursive, iterative and memoized iterative version of the fibonacci numbers code and we discussed the pros and cons of each   1 Answer
