    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Recruiter call, followed by peer than hiring manager. The process was standard but the hiring manager call was basically something to the extent where the manager had concerns if I had the experience for this role after a long conversation.

    Huh ...

    Didn't he read my resume?

    It almost baffles me why someone would waste their time, or my time when you know the resume basically tells it all. Hopefully the other hiring managers are a bit smarter than this.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Adobe (Seattle, WA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    First: If the Adobe HR executive team ever reads these things, please please please help improve this process. It’s hurting your reputation. From what I could tell, the folks out of SJO seem to be great! Really on-point, engaged, communicate well and frequently, etc. All the stuff you would expect. But, Seattle. Yikes. Something is going wrong there. Read the hundreds of reviews that speak of these problems. Not just on Glassdoor… all over the web and other channels that us tech folks scoop out company cultures and job opportunities. The reputation proceeds you on this subject.

    Second: The experience…

    Longest most ambitious process I’ve ever seen in my entire career. The reputation is true. Adobe recruiters (especially the Seattle folks) do not communicate. They are non-responsive, and are prone to totally ghosting you. You need to be VERY proactive, and hound them to even get basic details about the process, the interview itself, and updates along the way. The entire process end-to-end took about 11 weeks! Shocking!

    I submitted an application. No response. I was able to reach a recruiter a week later, who finally got me in touch with the Seattle recruiting team. A month later, the Seattle team respond after I had to directly follow up to get a response.

    At the end of the month they finally were able to set up a call (several days after contact) and that all seemed to go smoothly. The coordinators are fantastic! Scheduled the interviews, had details about who you meet, when and where. All of that was very sooth for on-site interviews.

    The on-site interviews were fine. All of the interviewers were very nice, and we had engaging 1:1 conversations. Some of the questions asked are kinda weird, but the majority of the time we talked about the product, team culture, etc. The sessions are very informal. It will take about a half day.

    After the on-site interview, the recruiter ghosted. No follow-up, no feedback, nothingnesses even after repeated emails for next steps. They didn’t even ask how it went. Strange stuff… Three weeks later, the recruiter finally responds that they were still compiling feedback. Another two weeks later the recruiter responds thanking me for checking in. Still no info.

    Four whopping weeks later, a final onsite interview was scheduled and a subsequent rejection.

    They were so non-communicative that after five weeks into it, I figured that they didn’t want to hire me so I move on to interviewing and taking in offers from other companies. I was totally shocked when I was asked to come in for a final-interview.

    I read all of the reviews, and blog posts about Adobe’s notorious recruitment process but wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt. Seriously… the rumors are very real!

    Tips:
    1. Go ahead and apply. They are a great company. Don’t be afraid to dig in and do the work necessary to get noticed and get in the interview loop.

    2. Be proactive, they WON’T follow-up with you. They WON’T reach out to you. They WILL ghost you if you aren’t top of mind. You must do the work!

    3. Don’t get discouraged, you just might still be in the running.

    4. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. It might be an awesome company, but nearly 3 months waiting and vying for responses is a long time. Apply to other places, hedge your bets.

    Things to know:
    1. Unlike other tech companies in this area, their interviews are unstructured. Very casual. Conversational.

    2. If you are a good fit for the company, it doesn't matter. You only get to interview for the specific role, and will not be placed, considered, or recommended by HR for other roles at the company. You will need to start from scratch.

    3. The hiring manager may not be very engaged in the process. Unlike at some places, they might not reach out, see how you felt about things, follow-up on next steps, etc. My hiring manager, was pretty engaged but again...I was proactive in reaching out. Don't expect that from everyone.

    4. If you make it to the final round, you will probably get leaders who will talk about themselves the entire time and not let you get a word in about you, the role or your thoughts. Try your very best to get a few words in. It will derail your interview, and may not give you the best opportunity to shine. You might need to get bullish. Go for it!

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 1 Tag. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im März 2018 bei Adobe (San Jose, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    A bad joke.. I was referred for a role. I am surprised the hiring manager even has this position at a company like Adobe. First 15 minutes of phone interview spent questioning motivation for looking for a new role given the short tenure at my current company. Nothing wrong with asking that per se. But the constant badgering as well as refusal to understand that yes, this is 2018 and people can be open to opportunities and can and should apply to roles they are passionate about in companies they admire went over the hiring managers head. Also the hiring managers attitude was extremely rude, sullen and like someone with emotional IQ on the negative scale. The hiring managers refusal to understand the human on the other end of the phone was astounding, never have I seen anything like this in 10+ years of working in tech.

    Then I am asked if I have questions. I say I would love to hear about the role. She asks if I have seen the job description. I say yes. She then tells me to tell her what I think the role is about so that she can correct me if I am wrong. You have to be kidding, right? In normal circumstances, my request to talk about the job would segue into a conversation - even if I had seen the job description before. This would be how normal human beings relate - apparently not at Adobe though. They want candidates to tell them what they think the job is so that hiring managers can "correct" the candidate. Wow!

    Then the question 'what kind of marketing technology do you know'? Now that is a broad question. I ask for clarification on specifically what type of marketing tech. There's front end, back end, software, ad-interfaces, data-pipelines, architecture. I mean that's a lot. Hiring manager is not able to clarify yet expects a succinct answer encompassing all of the above.

    Also, I had re-scheduled an interview with the manager a day before. It was at the last minute, yes, because literally the last minute I got pulled into a meeting at work - basically I would have been speaking to the hiring manager from my work. Not surprisingly, given the low emotional IQ of this person, they did not understand this fact. In my experience, last minute re-schedules do happen especially with professionals working full time and it may not always be possible to give notice. Of course, all this went over this persons head.

    We both hung up as fast as we could, glad to be rid of each other I am sure.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I went through Seven different rounds of interview, with Eight different individuals. The total recruitment process went on for close to Two months. I enjoyed the level of detail and clarity that wen into each interaction. One recommendation would be shorten the end-to-end recruitment timelines, and to avoid rescheduling sessions at short notice.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 6 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2017 bei Adobe (Neu-Delhi (Indien)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Interviewed over a period of 6+ months.

    Initial round of 8 interviews were finished in the first two months. I was flown onsite and was made to present to a panel, talk to VP, US counterpart etc. After that I did not get any update from Adobe. Then 5 months later I received a call stating that they needed one more round with another US counterpart. After this there was no update again

    I understand that they tried their best to consider my candidature. But rather than leaving the candidate to assume outcomes, timely communication on selection/rejection will be appreciated.
