    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GoPro in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, and week later got email on a project that would relate to the job positions.

    They said they were interested based on resume. Was told to complete a 3 step project that would not take more than two days. There was no email saying, "we recived your submission."

    4 days later, did a follow up to the recuritor, no email back, and then the rejection email saying your not qualified. So not sure if they even look at my work I summited, took about 10 hours to complete.

    I would say, lot of application, so make sure you resume and all your work stands out. Don't expect any one-to-one process at the very start.

    Hope that helps.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at GoPro (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Lengthy discussions with their recruiter over the course of several phone calls, a lunch and an after-interview assessment.

    Their project management staff took issue with their recent restructuring. Awkward.

    The interview with the department managers was discouraging and uncomfortable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GoPro in June 2015.

    Interview

    I reached out to GoPro, following a job posting, and was contacted by a recruiter. I had a 20 minute phone conversation with the recruiter that was pretty standard fare, and near the end of the call, I basically priced myself out of the position. I thought the rec salary range was super low for a Bay Area CD -- making me think that this position might just be a senior writer job, not actual management. Even though I priced myself above the salary range, the hiring manager wanted to speak with me. We had a great conversation (I actually thought they'd change their mind and offer me the job). But that's as far as it went. Really wanted it to work out, cool company.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to describe the GoPro brand -- I was also asked to offer what I would recommend for growing the GoPro brand in the near future. Also, they always ask if you personally own a GoPro product.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I got an e-mail asking to have an initial screening over the phone. After the phone screening, they e-mailed asking for a phone interview the next week. They e-mailed me 2 hours after the phone interview asking if I'd come in for an in person interview that week. I talked to 6 people during the in-person interview. It took about 2.5 hours. They were all 1 on 1 interviews except for one, which had 2 people. Two days later they called me to tell me I didn't get the job. The entire process took about 2 weeks. The people were all extremely friendly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at GoPro (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Sent in my resume and was contacted the same day (Wednesday) for a phone interview. I was asked for availability over 3 days (Fri, Mon, Tues.). I sent back the best times and and never heard back. I emailed the recruiter Monday morning updating my times. She requested a time which ultimately would work because of an emergency meeting at my current employer. I emailed back explaining this and asking for a bit later time. Never heard back till she tried to call at the bad appointed time. She left a message asking for another time and I gave her many more times. Never heard another peep until today when I got an email saying the position had been filled. Is reading your emails too much? Perhaps recruiting isn't for you. Bad communication (none).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at GoPro (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Emailed to set up a skype pre-interview. Once skype opened ...first thing was that they laughed. Phone interview lasted less than 2 minute and they didn't seem to know what to ask or say other than do you own a GoPro. That made the process difficult.
    No information about the job, what skills or experience I have, etc. I don't think they knew much about the position or had experience interviewing applicants. There was no further follow up (from them).

    Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Overall it was a positive experience. It took almost 6-7 weeks total from the date I applied online. With as many people as they are hiring, the recruiter was responsive and organized throughout the whole process, although a few follow up emails were required nothing out of the ordinary. I had 4 stages for this interview: phone screening with the recruiter, phone interview with the hiring manger, and two on-site interviews with nine different individuals (1:1s). There were six people in the first on-site over 4 hours and three in the 2nd onsite over 2.5 hours. It was a bit repetitive and exhausting going through that many 1:1 interviews in a row, but ultimately it was more comfortable and engaging compared to a panel or group interview. They are really big on not only finding the person with the right talent but also finding a culture fit. I was bummed of course in the end when I didn't get it, but it came down to the other candidate having more experience, so what can you do. I am glad I had the opportunity.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First you get a phone screen. The recruiter was very nice, the conversation flowed well and I got a better understanding of what GoPro is looking for, how I might fit the mold, and she got a better understanding of what I can do and offer the company. Next came another phone interview but with someone in the department I'm applying for. This was a very low stress call. Just a way to get to know the person in my department I will be working with/for and see if we mesh well, a chance to prove to him via phone that I'm not an idiot. Then next came the inperson interview. This was a 3.5 hour interview with 7 people. It was long and somewhat intense, given the amount of people you meet with, but everyone was great and super nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GoPro in November 2014.

    Interview

    Two editing tests, each of 3-5 photos and a text document with directions for each photo. I had fun doing it, and found it to be between average and difficult. The first test was tricky and a bit tough, but the second was quite well rounded and not bad. Submittal through Dropbox. They responded saying they had received it, and that was the last I had ever heard back.

    Interview Questions

    • The only questions I was asked pertained to how I would go about editing an image.   Answer Question
