    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Autodesk (San Rafael, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Had an initial phone interview with the recruiter followed by a call with the hiring manager. The hiring manager was really impressed with my skills and wanted to immediately proceed to an onsite interview. The onsite consisted of 5 1:1 rounds all focused on my previous experience and some behavioral questions.
    The panel was really impressed with my background and skills and I received an email from the recruiter as soon as I completed the onsite interview (yes, the same day, like my interview ended at 11:30 and I already had an email in my inbox) that the feedback so far has been positive. I received an offer in two days and the comp was good. Overall the experience was great and the interview panel was really friendly and knowledgeable. However, I had to decline the offer since I had a better offer from another company.

    Program Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Autodesk in February 2020.

    Interview

    If this is how they treat potential employees, I wouldn't want to be an employee.

    Recruiter reached out to me via Linkedin, and I was eventually asked to complete a questionnaire/survey as a pre-qualification for a RD1 phone interview. I wasn't really looking for a new job, but figured 'why not see what happens.'

    I passed that step, and was told the next step was for 2 phone interviews, one with someone in Novi and another in Munich. Then afterwards those teams would collaberate and decide if an in-person interview was warranted.

    The recruiter asked me to provide time options for them to schedule the phone interviews, which I did.
    I then didn't hear back from the Recruiter until she sent out a calendar-meeting confirmation, at 9:30 at night, for one interview less than 12 hours before the actual call.
     In that same e-mail she asked also asking if an 11:30am on the following Monday would still work. I said yes to both, though I was a little frustrated with such short notice.

    The next day I have the phone interview with the person in Novi, and I can say that it was an average phone interview process. She was clearly reading from a script and writing down my answers, and I answered everything as best I could. I didn't feel good or bad about this process, except it felt very robotic. The last question I asked, as I always ask, was confirming what the next steps were. She confirmed the next step was for my Part-2 phone interview with Munich on Monday, and after that they would collaborate and decide if they would bring me in for a in-person interview.

    Monday comes, and I realize the recruiter never reached out with a calendar/call # for the 11:30am that she, I, and the Novi interviewer confirmed would be happening. I tried reaching out 2 hours before the scheduled meeting, then 10 minutes before, with no response.

    It wasn't until the next day did she respond, apologizing for not sending out the invite, and then eventually scheduled a call/calendar invite for the following Friday.

    Then the Thursday before the scheduled Part 2 phone interview, the Recruiter cancels it and sends me a poorly worded e-mail saying my previous phone interview "didn't provide enough details" and that moving forward with a second interview wasn't needed.

    First, it wasn't a second interview, it was Part 2 of the first round of interviews that everyone confirmed was the process. Second, if I didn't provide enough details, wouldn't the Part 2 phone interview be the perfect opportunity to ask for clarification? And then third, why would Autodesk schedule and confirm this other phone interview and cancel it, with less than a day notice, deciding it wasn't necessary?

    Overall, the entire process left a bad taste in my mouth. Like everyone, I've interviewed before and received rejections, but this was another level. Part of me feels cheated out of the full first-round interview process due to how poorly organized the Recruiter was, because if I had had the part 2 phone interview on the Monday that was planned, then this excuse of 'not providing enough details' wouldn't leave me so confused.

    Just the poor communication, shuffling of expectations, and disorganization really turned me off to Autodesk. And if they jerk around potential new employees like this, then I wouldn't want to be an employee. Although, a lot of reviews on here already confirmed that.

    Senior Project Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email from a recruiter the next day inviting me to choose a date for a phone screen. After choosing a date for our interview recruiter got back to me saying that she needs to reschedule since she’s going on vacation. The only available spot in the calendar was 10 days after the initial interview date. It gave me more time to prepare for the interview, which I did while being on a vacation myself. On a day of the interview the recruiter was 10 min late and all she said was: « we’ve filled this position internally already, sorry forgot to let you know ». Oh, Autodesk, I really hoped you can do better than that. So unprofessional. I’m very disappointed the way Autodesk employees ruin this company’s reputation.

    Data Quality Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Autodesk in January 2020.

    Interview

    Had about 4 interviews and 3 rounds over 1.5 months. And about 2+ months since I applied.
    In the end, the job was pulled out and I received an automated email saying that the position was canceled. Nobody from the recruiting body reached out personally. And this seems very odd and unprofessional conduct by such an established company. I was at least expecting a phone call after talking to the same people 2-3 times through the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Autodesk.

    Interview

    Was reached out by the recruiter for this role. I had an initial video interview with a team member and was informed that they will reach out within a couple of weeks. Since then its been more than 4 months and I haven't received any response whatsoever. I tried following up with the recruiter multiple times but radio silence.

    Now, on the careers site, it shows that the job has been removed and I still haven't heard back from the team. Its been one of the most horrible experiences I've ever had. At least, have the courtesy to keep the candidate informed about the final decision and an interim update while the process is on, doesn't hurt.

    Autodesk needs to really work on their Hiring Practices. Disappointing.
