It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at Intuit?

Any advice on striking the right note?

Hi Suresh,

It depends on the level of Software Engineer you are pursuing, but typically a phone interview with a recruiter, a technical phone interview and then an in-person interview with anywhere from four to six people. Sometimes follow-up conversations/interviews need to happen if not all the information was gathered.

At Intuit we focus on certain competencies for each open and motivational fit as well as communication. Competencies could include technical, team building, innovation, leadership, etc. For example, a Senior Software engineer will probably have two people focus on technical for the in-person and then others could focus on innovation, mult-tasking and decsion-making. We use an assessment method that asks behavorial type questions as well.

If you need more detail or have specific questions around an opening, please feel free to email me at jennifer_hasche@intuit.com.

Hope this helps and thanks for asking!

I am so sorry that you have had a bad experience with the interview process. I will forward your comment to the manager that runs the India Talent Organization.

Intuit truly wants the candidate experience to be a good experience. Unfortunately things sometimes get missed. We will work to correct the situation immediately.

If you are willing to send me your name and email address, I can assure you that you will be given feedback on your interview. Please feel free to send me an email to gail_houston@intuit.com

Gail Houston in San Diego, California

I understand your frustration and apologize that you have not gotten any feedback. I will make sure the manager knows this is the second time this has happened so that we can try to improve the candidate experience. I wish you the best. Gail Houston - gail_houston@intuit.com

I recently went through an interview process with Intuit in the Mississauga,ON office. After several personal and telephone interviews, I was told that the recruiter would get back to me with feed back either way. It has been over two weeks now and I have not received any feed back whatsoever. I have sent emails and have left voice messages with the recruiter but have received no response. My final message I left was when I received another offer and wanted to know my status with Intuit before I accepted the other offer.

Oversight? After all that effort and no response, I don't think so.

I have sent a message to your recruiter - he is out of the office until Nov 15. I am showing that you are still in consideration and have sent on a note to his backup.

Please let me know if you don't hear from someone within a day or so.

Hello,

I applied a while back to requisition number 70397 (Software Engineer). Is the position still open, or has it been filled/canceled?

Thanks.

I am showing candidates in the interview process for that position. I will need to check with the recruiter but it looks like they have their candidates in process.

Normally the interview process consists of a couple phone interviews and then an onsite interview with the Team. A Technical interview is part of the process.

Hi,

I got interview by Intuit yesterday and it went really well. I just have a quick question. How long will it take to know about the status of the application?

it varies depending on what type of interview it was - every manager is different - did you ask your recruiter when you could expect to hear back?

Arjun in West Lafayette, Indiana

Hey Gail,

Thanks for the response. I mailed her up on Friday after my interview & now waiting on response. I am actually concerned that I have competing deadlines ending in a week and I am really looking forward to join Intuit.

Also, a quick question, will there be any more interview rounds after this?

-Arjun

Gail Houston in Tucson, Arizona

51 months ago

Without knowing which position it is it is hard to know if there are additional rounds. Let me know if you don't hear back from your recruiter soon, she will be able to tell you the timeline.

Also, let her know about your competiting deadlines you have coming up.

Hi Gail,

Glad you heard back - all applicants need to feel comfortable asking the recruiters what the interview process looks like - when can you expect to hear back? Is it okay if I follow up if I haven't heard from you by xx date?

I try to give every candidate a date they should hear back from me and then I give them permission to follow up with me on that date if they have not heard back. That way, two of us are trying to make sure nothing falls thru the cracks.

Let us know how things turn out.

Hey Gail,

I got in touch with you few days back. I had competing deadlines on 20th February but I managed to extend that till 23rd February. I mailed my recruiter explaining her the situation and she told me that someone will get back to me by 20th. I mailed her again yesterday regarding this. I am waiting on her reply now. I really want to work with Intuit and I was wondering if I should ask for more extension from other companies? I completely understand that there is a process which takes time and I dont want to rush things for one candidate but I am clueless here what to do in my situation. Is there anyway you can help me in this?

Thanks again!

I understand that Intuit does team based interviews, where the team you work for interviews you instead of an interview committee made up of different people from different teams. in my experience with team interviews the interview/hiring process differs wildly from team to team. Depending on the culture of the team, you can get very different type of interviews since different teams look for different things.

The thing to understand is that hiring and interview is a very complicated process, its not always 100% meritocracy based. I've seen qualified candidate being turned down because of a bad cultural fit with the team. I've also seen candidates with average education/resume get hired because of their positive outlook and a perception that they are easy to work with.

In order to be successful with your interview, its essential for you to get a good feel for the team dynamics on your interview day (or, even better, ask your friends who already work at the company about the team your are interviewing for). For example, what the manager of the team wants might not be 100% aligned with the other team members want. Its up to you to get a feel for this and present yourself in the right way to each one of your interviewers.

Hi Raghav
Thank you for your note. You didn't mention if you were working with a recruiter or not at Intuit? If so, I would recommend that you contact your recruiter and ask them when they expect to hear back from the hiring manager?

Also, as a best practice, I always recommend that candidates ask recruiters/hiring managers at the end of an interview when you can expect to hear back and is it okay to follow up after that date if you have not heard back.

Let me know if you can reach your recruiter...if not email me at gail_houston@intuit.com with the position number you interviewed for.

Hi Gail,
I was contacted by Intuit recruiter yesterday calling from Central Time and I supposed to have phone interview today at 1 pm Pacific Time. It's already 5 pm and I haven't received any call, unfortunately I don't have her phone number either. Please advise what should I do now, I'm very interested in to possibly working at Intuit. Thanks for your help

We are getting Desi taken care of. Wanted to put a note out for those that are reading the forums just in case this happens - always feel free to email me at gail_houston@intuit.com if there is any type of issue with your interview and you can't get ahold of your recruiter. I will do what I can to help quickly.

I would also recommend you always check your spam folders. If a recruiter is emailing directly from the applicant tracking system it is possible an email went to that folder. Not sure that is what happened in this case but I have seen this happen before.

Also, if you are wanting to know your status - we added that feature when we implemented our new applicant tracking system. You can look on "my jobs page" and see all of the positions you applied for and where you are at in the process.

Have a great night!

I applied for the Tax Advisor Specialist-Remote position on the Intuit website on November 9. The Submission Status still states "Excited to receive your application". Are there still positions available for the 2013 tax season?
Thank you,

Hi Gail,
This thread is almost a year old but I thought I would give it a try. I had a phone interview with a recruiter Monday. She said I should hear back by the end of the week. It now being Friday should I give it a few more days or assume I was not selected for further interviews? Thank you in advance for any info.

Hi Melissa, it is my understanding that the recruiter contacted you today, she got a little bit behind due to her traveling . If you have not heard back yet, please email me - gail_houston@intuit.com.

Any advice on striking the right note?

If you are applying to a seasonal Tax Advisor position, they give you a brief timed test over tax laws and it is open book so you can look things up.

In the followup interview, the interviewer will pretend like they are a customer asking for tax advice. You will pretend like you are answering it as an Turbo Tax Agent. To do this, you will need to have your computer at hand to research questions. Do not just try to wing it off the top of your head, unless you really know the answers. It is okay to say, "Hold on a minute, I am going to research your question."

Good luck! And be sure to apply BEFORE tax season.

I was contacted by an Intuit Recruiter over 2 months ago for a manager position in the Mississauga Office, I had the initial conversation with her, then 3, 1 hour phone interviews and then a face to face interview with 2 people. The recruiter was staying in touch with me through out the whole process, up until after the face to face interview. I sent 2 emails and left a voice mail. I find this very rude and inconsiderate. I spent hours in this process and took time of work. I am not upset that I am not the chosen candidate, I am upset that I was being treated so nicely, and then as soon as they don't need you anymore, they forget you even exist. It's just extremely rude. My Husband had an Interview with Google, and they kept in touch the whole time and even called him at the end. So it's not all tech companies that are like this. I am very disappointed in this company.

I am so sorry you had a bad experience. Can you please send me an email to gail_houston@intuit.com and let me know who you worked with. We did have a couple of recruiters leave recently. It is possible that this was missed in the transition. Not sure that is the case but definately want to help you get the feedback you deserve.

Hi,
I'm a french student and I really want to apply for an intership (Data science or software engineer) at intuit (in America) but it's really hard to fill out the form because french education is so different than american education. I studied in an engineering school which doesn't exist in America, and it give no equivalence between those two kind of educations.
I tried to find any way to contact them on their career website but that was unsuccesful. Do you know how can I get someone to speak with?

Thank you

Hi Gail!

I love this company, and I have recently applied for the Manager 1 position here in Tucson AZ. I also applied for the product support representative as well through an outside staffing agency. I managed to get the position for the support representative, however I was really hoping to hear back regarding the manager application. Is there any chance I would hear back regarding my application for manager?

Thank you

Gail Houston in Plano, Texas

Hi Tiffany, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Send me your resume and the position number. I will see if I can get feedback. I do know they need local candidates for the role and call center management experience from what I understood.

You can also see your status in the my jobs tab of our applicant tracking system. Recruiters might be a little behind with the holidays reviewing resumes.

My email is gail_houston@intuit.com
