Content Analyst Interview

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Snap (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2015.

Interview

It was about a month and a half process. I was first asked to do the SnapStory challenge and create a story within a 24 hour period. That advanced me to the phone interview which I thought was very pleasant and engaging, and the questions were very manageable. I was then invited for an on-site interview. It was a 2 hour process, and I spoke to 3 different interviewers. Definitely a more laid back vibe and a lot of the talking was while we walked from building to building. I was also asked to use their software to sift through content to create a local story for about a half hour. Everyone was pretty friendly and the location is awesome.

Interview Questions

  • Who is your favorite story teller? (producer, director, author) What was a favorite recent story? Least favorite story and why? Tell me about you non-resume self? What is a story that you have not seen that you would like to see? What is your favorite movie? (offer more than one) Why did you want to get into a creative role? What are your career goals?   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Snap.

    Interview

    Applied online, then had the snap story challenge, then phone interview. Didn't get to in-person interview. Guy I spoke with on the phone was very cold, dismissive, and sounded like he was doing something else while talking to me. Was unprepared for this as most reviews described them as very friendly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Snap (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I made it to the in-person interview in Venice Beach and was saddened by the lack of professionalism of the interviewers. They had no idea who I was or that I had even traveled from a different state for the interview. This position is also hourly, 50+/week with night and weekend shifts -- something not explained to me until I was in California. Also, who is the manager? No one knows because they are all "content analysts" from what I see. Be wary of this position. No clear path for any advancement.

    First there was a Story challenge, which they give you 24 hours or so notice for. Wasn't too hard, and I really enjoyed that process. Then there was a phone interview if they liked your Story... Phone Screen was interesting, hard questions and didn't ask me about my resume experience at all.

    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.
