    Vice President of IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Mateo, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Very professionally managed process from the application process all the way through closure. The HR / Talent Recruiting team, to the interviewers themselves maintained schedule, asked probing and genuine questions. At the beginning of the 5 person, 3 hour interview HR mentioned they'd gather feedback and get back within in a week. --They kept their promise, and while I didn't get the job, I was impressed by their professionalism.

    Senior Electronics Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview with HR, then onsite.
    I think the hiring manager reviewed my resume and was confident in his choice. The interview was 4.5hours encompassing manufacturing processes, electronic theory, advanced circuit integration including SMT technique and RF interference- straight through to solving existing discrepancies. I wasn't a good fit. GoPro however has an amazing campus and is worth a look. I appreciate the time they spent with me.

    Senior Designer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GoPro in February 2015.

    Interview

    Had a couple phone screenings with recruiters before a call with the creative director. The conversation went well and we seemed to bond but in the end they said it wasn't the right fit. Then again the job ad had been up for the past year so I figured they were looking for something very specific. The following week I got a message from the recruiters again telling me about the same position, forgetting we had already gone through the process :)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at GoPro.

    Interview

    Took a pretty long time - applied online and received an initial HR phone screen (3rd party) maybe 2-3 weeks later. Then another 2-3 weeks went by before I received a call to go in for an onsite interview. At the onsite, they had about 5-6 people in a room that included Developers, QA testers, project manager, business development, and product manager. They all seemed like nice people. It wasn't what I expected and I got nervous.

    Music Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I 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).

    Interview Questions

    • Somewhat silly question along the lines... 'so, you know, like, all these famous film makers and you can call them ..."   1 Answer

    IT Applications Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    The process was efficient and took just over 2 weeks. I applied online and was contacted by the recruiter. The recruiter then scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager. That went well and I was then invited in for onsite interviews. The recruiters coordinator requested available interview times. I gave times that would work and times when I was not available. The coordinator then went and scheduled the onsite interviews during a time that I was not available. Very confusing...the response was that it was the only time that would work. I reworked my schedule to fit. The interviewers seemed nice, genuine and for the most part, on the young side without a lot of experience. The recruiter got back to me within a couple of days.

    Overall, a good experience.
