    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Snap in December 2017.

    Interview

    This was plain retarded and a complete waste of time. I still can not understand why the interviewer would reject me. The question was incredibly straightforward. I was very clear with my answers. I had one hiccup when my indices were off by 1. But in the end, the interviewer said that the algorithm is perfect. It was as optimal as it can get. I ran it on a couple of test cases. They never judged me based on my personality, so I don't understand what else they were looking at. It was two college graduates who were more confused than I was. I think Snap really needs to reevaluate it's hiring process. I was looking forward to my next stage.

    Account Manager Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Snap.

    Interview

    I was impressed with the level of engagement and genuine interest of Snap’s recruiting team. They ultimately decided not to procede, however, they kept me informed the entire time and cared enough to give me some feedback. The one negative is that it took 3 weeks for them to say no and they kept me hopeful even though the interview didn’t go well. After two weeks they emailed me asking me to hang, so I put everything on hold and missed out on an offer for a job that pays considerably more than the job I ended up taking.

    Android Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Snap.

    Interview

    Phone screen was fine and standard interview with codepad problem. But on site was awkward as you had to solve non-standard coding problems in less than 30 min and make all unit tests pass. The interviewers were not helpful.

    Android Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Venice, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Snap (Venice, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend who was in the interview process. Had a quick chat with the hiring manager and then scheduled the phone screen. The phone screen was an hour long and focused on fundamental data structure and algorithm understanding. Two hours after the phone screen, I was invited to come on site. The on site interview was pretty standard - 4, one-hour long interviews that covered overall system design, Android specific topics, and general data structures/algorithms. I hadn't been feeling well that day and by the end of the day was dragging pretty bad; my final interview was pretty rough but that was nobody's fault.

    The only complaint I have is that finding the lobby could certainly be easier. It's tucked back in a group of unmarked bungalows; maybe if they could have someone standing out on the street or on the boardwalk to meet you it'd make that a bit easier.

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Snap.

    Interview

    They were quick to get you onsite But the reception is terrible.
    Once I reached the building I was told to in the email, I was surprised to see The office needed a key card to access and no receptionist I could reach for help. Luckily while I was wondering around I saw the building manager who keyed me in . The restrooms had key codes and I had to tailgate someone to use it.

    Felt it was just a waste of my time to come onsite, I think I got the reason why Snapchat will never become as good as Facebook.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Snap (San Jose, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was so impressed the recruiter actually kept me updated on the status and even though I wasn’t chosen she wrote to tell me. If only all recruiters could be so kind it would make a huge difference. You know like actually treat candidates like human beings? I see you Madeline!
