    Employee Communications Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Informatica.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was unlike any other I've had, and it was great. I interviewed several times with quite a few people and each conversation was engaging and insightful. It was a longer process than most but I can see why. They want to make sure you are a good fit and are more interested in your career path and reasons for pursuing the specific opportunity than trying to trip you up with irrelevant questions. Questions are designed to see how you would approach a situation or how you've approached in the past. I appreciated that they kept me in the loop throughout my rounds of interviews and saw what was to become a great match!

    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Informatica in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    It was a full day of discussion started at 11:00AM. Started with filling a Candidate Information Form where you need specify the job history, skill set, current CTC, Expected CTC etc. Had around 4 rounds of technical discussion till evening. Lunch was also provided in between. Most of the discussion were most based on Core Java, Data Structures, Algorithms, design problems in distributed computing etc. Following to that, again called for a Director level discussion and HR discussion some days later to that. The director level discussion was all of a casual discussion on the job profile and understanding on the interest levels etc. The HR discussion was again a casual discussion on reason for change, assessment on the previous discussions, justification on the compensation, why Informatica etc. Further to that, told for sharing the latest 3 months payslip and hike letter for compensation evaluation and told like might need to come on another day for a 15 minutes discussion again on salary communication.
    The pathetic part started then. They prolonged it for a period of more than a week where I was holding back on other interview invites, accepting of other offers etc to hear from them. I indicated and followed up with them also several times to update on the status as early as possible. However, after repeated request, a mail came that I am not shortlisted for further discussion which really perplexed me. I even asked for a reason on what was the pro-longed delay as well as the reason for not going further. Nothing heard from them so far which I felt really unprofessional.

    The most annoying things was they were not telling a clear date on when they will inform me on the final status and after long wait came back with a negative response. Hence, no more considering Informatica from my end also for a job position.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Informatica.

    Interview Details

    It was a fair interview process back in 2009. Back then managers treated you with respect during interviews. Today the new managers show some aggressivity during the interview to see if you will crack. They will lure you into the job by being on their best behavior and once you start working for them you will see their true colours and realize how hostile they are.

    • Back in 2009 it was a fair interview process...not that difficult. Today is about the same. They want top performers so if you have that on your resume, then they will want you.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Informatica.

    Interview Details

    Applied through school career center website and also talked to recruiters during career fair. Got an on campus interview within 10 days. The interview is pretty short, only 60 minutes. The guy who conducted the interview was from the head quarter and has been a software engineer for 20 years. The question he asked was about is pretty easy. It was about Binary Search Tree Traverse. How to do it recursively and iteratively.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Informatica in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very easy interview but the interviewer was unprepared! The interviewer didn't greet me and had no idea about the status of my application. He also just hung up after we were done without saying anything but 'Bye'. I solved the questions really fast and when I was done it seemed like he was googling random questions and asking me. Was shocked when I didn't get an offer because I thought I did really well.
