Content Analyst Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Snap (New York, NY) in May 2015.

Interview

Turned in an application online, had a 15-20 minute phone interview, completed a Snapchat Story challenge (had to create an entertaining/interesting snapchat story in 24 hours), and interviewed in person (talked to 2 different employees & had a chance to practice cultivating a live story in their office). While I loved every step of the process (the Snapchat Story challenge was so fun!) and had a positive experience with every Snapchat employee I met, I found the waiting period (around 4 weeks) to hear back from my final interview to be very frustrating.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Snap (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    About two months in total. First they asked for me to create a snapchat story and send it to them. Afterwards I was told to wait a week or two for the next step, which was an over the phone interview. After the phone interview, I was told to wait another week or two for the next step, an in house interview. I met with two different content analysts and by the end was told to give an analysis on two different "Our Stories" they had operating. Compare, contrast, etc. I was ten told to wait another week or two for another phone interview with their director. After the phone interview he told me they would be in touch with me about the next step of the interview process in about a week or two. After two weeks I was told they would be going with somebody else for the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Snap (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was initially asked to do a creative project, creating a personal story on my timeline that showcased my use of the app. It was very easy and not stressful.
    After passing this portion of the process, I was asked to do a phone interview.
    I am not a stickler for courtesy by any means, but this interview was very unprofessional. The interviewer didn't seem to be in a quiet area and kept getting distracted by other people during our talk. The interviewer moved locations multiple times, and didn't seem focused when I answered questions.
    The interviewer also had not even watched the creative project I submitted. I hung up feeling as though I shouldn't have bothered.
    I was not surprised to find out shortly thereafter that I did not get an in-person interview.

    Interview

    Snap story challenge then phone interview then on sight interview. Met three people over 3 hours. They let me use software to create a campus story. Very young company that is still setting up departments and procedures as they go. Very collaborative environment.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Snap (Venice, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very basic interview: they asked what I liked most about Snapchat, why I wanted to work there, what I could contribute, and where I thought the company would be in the next 5 years. Aside from that, I was also asked to "create" a new story based on submitted snaps for a particular campus. It was all fairly straight forward and they never asked any questions that threw me for a loop.

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Snap (Venice, CA).

    Interview

    Got an email to ask me to submit a story, had a phone interview, an on site interview, and another phone interview. Never got a call for one of my scheduled phone interviews so had to reschedule. Not very transparent in regards to hiring process. No cookie cutter process -it's different for every candidate making it very confusing as to where you are in the process.
