    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Snap (West Lafayette, IN).

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter over email. After scheduling the interview, the canceled the interview 2 days before the actual interview. This is highly
    unprofessional, I wanted to work for them, but after this I'm not so sure.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I spoke with a couple of Hiring Managers over the phone and then was brought into the office in Venice, CA. for a face to face interview inclusive of an opportunity to meet the team. These on premise interviews were conducted one on one in 30 minute intervals. Everyone was very pleasant, enthusiastic and significantly young (mid 20's). Everthing leading up and through the face to face interviews was all very possitive and led one to believe the outcome would result in an offer, but things changed immediately afterwards to a more evasive follow up. The dialogue went from, we're about ready to make an offer to, we have a few more candidates to interview and then, we have decided to pass. The Job Posting is still up as I write this. I was also told that Snap does not provide feedback as their company policy prohibits it. As an individual who is always looking to learn where one could improve, this was disapointing. While I am outwardly humble individual, I do know my value in the market and the years of experience I bring to the table. Snap' 180 change of direction only leads me to question whether there was "age descrimination."

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Snap (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I did a phone round with an engineer from Venice, and another with an engineer in NYC. Both pretty rough but interesting problems. Definitely feel like I gained something out of those interviews despite not making it onsite.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Snap (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    There are 5 round interviews including a lunch interview in the HQ. In each round, there are both behavior and technical questions. The difficulty of the coding question is the hard problems compared to leetcode. They will test you the understanding of data structure, algorithm, and time complexity. Overall, it was a really good time talking to those talented engineers in Sanpchat.
