Q. What is unique about Adobe?
Adobe makes great products that have changed how we share/consume documents, how we design creatives, and how we view the customer experience. Products like these don’t come out of thin air; they come from sourcing the best engineers who have a passion for the customer. So if you’re looking to land a job at Adobe, but don’t know what the interview process looks like, then you’ve come to the right place.
The second part of the test is the technical/coding section. You’ll be given 15 questions which you are to complete in about two hours. The first seven questions are coding questions (i.e. reverse a linked list) and the last eight are multiple choice where you’ll be predicting the outcome of the code provided.
If you’ve successfully navigated through the hiring manager phone interview, then you’ll be invited to come on-site. This is a full day of interviewing (around 6-8 hours) so be prepared to do a lot of talking. The on-site interview loop consists of about 5 interviews with one HR round and four technical rounds.
In the technical portion of the interview, you’ll meet with potential co-workers and manager(s) of the team for about 45-minutes to an hour each. These interviews will cover algorithms, data structures, OS, system design, and occasionally questions specific to the language you claim to be an expert in. In general, the questions will be a mix of whiteboard coding, but they will also feature questions related to problems they have recently solved so they can see how you deal with questions you aren’t necessarily prepared for.
If you complete the assessment and they select you to continue then you’ll have a 30-45 minute phone interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager will dig into your resume to better gauge your leadership skills, problem-solving style, and your ability to work with a team. She/he will want to know about past projects you’ve worked on and the complexities associated with it. There will also be behavioral (refer to Adobe’s core values) and technical questions to test your domain knowledge.
