    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Imgur.

    Interview

    My entire experience with the Imgur interview process was awesome! The process was extremely thorough and fair, and the recruiter was really great about explaining the process and keeping me informed. It consisted of a recruiter phone screen, several phone interviews (including a face-to-face hangout), and an in-person round of interviews with 4-5 members of the team. Everyone was very friendly and responsive throughout the entire process, and they really took the time to get to know me. I was alerted that I had received the job and started three weeks ago! All in all, I really enjoyed the interview process at Imgur.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Imgur in August 2017.

    Interview

    Total time: 7 weeks from online application to accepting the offer
    Applied both online, and also through an employee that I know working there

    - Recruiter phone screen
    - Coffee chat with hiring manager and recruiter
    - In-person interviews with 6 people (engineering, product, design), onsite lunch with 3 people, debrief with recruiter
    - Final interview with CEO who was on vacation when I previously interviewed (could have done it via a google hangout but I chose to come back into the office)
    - Verbal offer from Imgur the next day
    - Formal offer from Imgur the day after

    Overall the experience was a very welcoming, positive one. There was a bit of a delay at the start getting the first phone screen scheduled but things were smooth after that. John the recruiter was friendly, enthusiastic and supportive throughout the experience. The coffee chat with the hiring manager and recruiter was a new step for me, but it allowed us to explore different ideas in a much more casual setting than the artificial interview room situation so I felt like I got a good sense that there was a mindset and chemistry match.

    I got a strong sense of the corporate culture when I walked into the office - totally funky, pop culture office space, very informal and warm. Lots of couch/hang-out areas and several office dogs (yay!). There's photos online - google it.

    This is the first Technical Program Manager role for Imgur so the interviewers were very curious about what I could bring to the table and shared their challenges for feedback on how I might be able to help. It felt like an interesting exploration and exchange of ideas.

    I had a competing offer the day before I got the Imgur offer but the choice wasn't too hard -- I took Imgur. So far, so good!

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Imgur (San Francisco, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The process from the initial phone conversation to the final interview was about under a month - pretty quick & smooth for a sales role. The internal recruiter stayed in contact throughout the process and shared feedback along the way. The process was pretty standard: two phone screens (recruiter and hiring manager) & onsite mock pitch followed by 1:1 interviews with the team. Final round was a chat with the head of sales and CEO. The team there was pretty cool. Smart, friendly, all seemed like they got along and liked being there. Ultimately turned down the offer since the commute was too far.

    Pros: Dog friendly office, awesome location, laid back culture
    Cons: Longer walk from BART than I'd like

    Account Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Imgur (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through the website in May. The recruiter reached out about a week later and was really pleasant and sold the company well. I had an interview with the Manager over skype and then I had to do an Imgur assignment. Turn around was quick to onsite where I met with 3 people onsite and 2 ppl on skype because they were in Los Angeles. I really enjoyed everyone I met and I liked the office space in downtown San Francisco. I was quite nervous so I did just ok. The recruiter gave me feedback 2 days later to let me know I didn't make it. He was so nice about it and explained why I didn't pass. I didn't have enough of the skills they needed for the role. We both decided we would keep in touch because they may open more roles next year. The process took about 4 weeks.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Imgur in April 2017.

    Interview

    The worst experience I have ever had which reflects badly on the HR team and the company. Key issues:

    1. Prolonged process: The entire process took 2.5 months!
    2. The HR person who was coordinating my interview process would often schedule a meeting and not show up. This did not happen just once or twice but several times. While I understand that plans change and things come up, but setting up a meeting, not showing up and later sending an email saying they could not make it because of some reason or other only showed me how little they respected my time. A heads up before the meeting would have saved me a lot of time that I invested in first taking out the time to interview and before that preparing for the interview - only for it not to happen. It became extremely unprofessional at one point in time.
    3. After the first two rounds they kept asking me for more and more information related to my experience, unsure themselves of what the job description and responsibilities should entail. I then concluded that they had not put enough thought on the job description and the skill set they were looking for when they put the job description out.
    4. I had to follow up several times to find out whether the conversation was moving forward or not.

    Overall, terrible experience. Either the HR team does not value candidates or the company does not. Either way, I would advise the company to evaluate their HR process and the manner in which candidates are on-boarded. Absolutely no respect for candidates or their time.

    Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Imgur in March 2017.

    Interview

    Imgur's interview process was definitely very thorough. This is not a one or two and done process. It's important that they sift through the many applicants ensure the absolute best, talent as well as making certain the person is also the right cultural fit. Expect phone screenings, in-person interviews, video chat interviews and a final presentation at HQ to a group of ~10 people. The caliber of talent at Imgur is exceptionally high, so they make sure to take their time.

    Interview Questions

    • The most challenging part of the process was probably presenting Imgur to the folks at Imgur, but everyone is very nice and if you make it that far you'd better do your homework and brush up on your presentation creation skills.   Answer Question

    Android Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Imgur (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was seamless from the get go. I was contacted by the recruiter via LinkedIn. Honestly speaking I wasn't aware of Imgur before speaking to him. My initial conversation with him ignited this spark to learn more about the product and the company. I was intrigued and motivated to move forward with the process. The turnaround time from recruiter call to phone screen with hiring manager was very quick. It took maybe a week to two weeks. The recruiter was super helpful and informative. He was easily accessible via email/phone to answer all my questions and concerns.

     The phone screen was technical and we discussed my prior experience and dived into some Android topics.
    When I came in for my onsite, I loved the energy around the office. All the interviewers were friendly and approachable which put me at ease. The technical rounds were challenging and I enjoyed my discussions with everyone on the panel. This is one of the only onsite interviews where I wasn't freaking out or a nervous wreck afterwards. I felt I was able to get to know the panel technically and personally, which doesn't always happen. I didn't feel like I had to make efforts to fit in.

    The final step in the process was to meet with the CEO. I walked in very nervous but it turned out to be a pleasant experience. Alan is not only passionate about the product he's built but is also a very involved and experienced engineer, which made my conversation very exciting. After meeting with him and the other team, I had a fair idea of how the company culture would be and hoped to get an offer.
