    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Informatica.

    Interview

    Very long and drawn out process. First spoke to the recruiter, then went on to speak to several other folks in marketing. It's a busted org with a lot of land grabbing going on and no leadership. People clearly fearful of hiring others who may have more experience than them. After my last interview they went dark for a month before I heard back that I didn't get the role. Fortunately I had moved on way before they called me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Informatica (New Brunswick, NJ (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Meet with recruiter first. Then hiring manager. Recruiter was very thorough. Video interview with hiring manager. Sounds like very collaborative environment. They have great products and leader in their market niche. More open to remote working than perhaps the past.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Informatica (San Jose, CA (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Worst phone interview experience with the design head. I usually wouldn’t say this, especially about ux design interviews, because you always learn something. But this one was unusually awful. The interviewer was extremely disinterested and couldn’t seem to care less. Felt like he was constantly typing. Complete waste of his time and mine.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Informatica.

    Interview

    I initially had a call with the recruiter m. Asked pretty basic questions about my experience. Then had a first coding round with pretty basic questions. I did pretty well. I have got a call for the second round and HR didn’t have me heads up regarding anything that I should have eclipse or any new IDE set up for the call. I simple didn’t had anything set up in my system, since it’s my person laptop which I was on. I have asked the interviewer if we could reschedule the interview. Looks like he was fine with it. After two days recruiter emailed me with the standard thing saying they are forwarding with the new candidate.

    Overall it was a complete negative experience.

    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Informatica (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Contacted by the recruiter. A bit of unprofessional shown when I was asked to reveal my current salary. I did not.

    Followed by technical screen where in I was asked theory questions on Java which is very strange for a role like this. I was also asked a coding question for which the interviewer was not ready to answer any followup questions from me. Besides that he was terse and rude at some point completely dismissing my thought process.

    I answered almost all the questions correctly except some college level theory questions which should be asked for high-school pop quizzes.
    At the end of the interview, I asked the interviewer about a division in Informatica which is mentioned in their website and he clearly indicated with utmost confidence that informatica does not do that. This showed that he had no clue what is going on in the company.

    I did not follow up with the recruiter as I had not intention of wasting a day to face this level of unprofessionalism onsite.
