    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Snap (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    HR Behavioral Screen (30min)
    - Talk about your background, why you want to apply, general screening to make sure you're not a robot

    Phone Coding Interview (1 Hour)
    - 10-15min talk about past work, be ready to deep dive into technical details
    - Medium/hard coding question (mine was about caches)

    Onsite (4 coding interviews, 1 lunch Interview (system design I think))
    - really enjoyed these, everyone on the team is super smart and friendly.
    - Graph/String/Array/DP questions + 10-15minute per coding interview to do some behavioral.

    I interviewed at Snap in Toronto (Bitmoji office)

    I interviewed at snap last week in Toronto. Everyone was super pleasant, and professional. The process was smooth and I was completely aware of where I was in the interview process at all times, and team got back to me any time I had any questions.

    Unfortunately, I stumbled under interview pressure and did not pass the bar. The questions were a range of maybe LC mediums and hards - all were ones I had not seen before in practice, but could be reasonably solved if you had good general problem solving skills and worked with your interviewer. I brute forced one, and did not get optimal solutions for another. However, was super impressed by everyone. Hopefully can reapply in a couple months after I brush up on my skills since I know this is a place I would want to work at.

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Snap.

    Got in contact with a recruiter about 4 weeks ago to begin the process. Standard recruiter call then technical phone screen. 3 weeks ago they said feedback was great and will reach out soon to schedule a second technical. A week after I followed up and got a response saying that they will send an invite to submit availability that week.
    It has been 2 weeks since then and have yet to get any word.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Snap (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2020.

    Interview

    One recruiter call, one PM screen, onsite interview with 4 PMs and 1 eng and the hiring manager call after the interview.
    I passed the onsite and failed the final hiring manager call. During the call I mentioned that I (he/him) would be moving because my partner (he/him) has to move, which surprised the hiring manager who then abruptly stopped the call.
    Recruiter reached out the next day saying the team wouldn't be moving forward with me. I asked for specific feedback and they didn't give me one.
    Learning that the company doesn't even release their diversity report, I'm not really surprised they wouldn't want an LGBTQ member.

    The interviewer was nice and easygoing. It was a very enjoyable conversation. I was asked one technical (coding) question and the interviewer helped me to solve it out when I got stuck. However, it still took me some time to figure it out.

    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Snap (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Got contacted by a recruiter and set an interview date 5 days later. Had 2 virtual technical interviews with 2 engineers(one conducting, 1 observing) for each. Both 1 hour long, no breaks, although promised one. I only got asked my tech background in the first one and about me in the second one(yes, that's it). Used hackerrank.com to code.

    The first coding question was a mess, the recruiter couldn't even explain himself properly and didn't understand c++ although that was the full list of requirements for the job. The second interview part was amazing. The person conducting was very professional and answered all my questions thoroughly.

    I wasn't able to finish the first coding question due to the extreme confusion but I completed the second.

    2 days later, I got an email saying they were not giving me an offer and I shouldn't ask for feedback because they wouldn't give me any.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I was asked two questions, one question is about doing a simple debug, and the other question is about word frequency, I solved them efficiently and in a short time. After two days, recruiter told me I did not fit in the role!
    It was a complete waste of time, I do not recommend anyone to go in this negative experience.

    Message to Snap Management: Fix your interview process, otherwise, you will not have a chance to have good engineers in the future.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Snap.

    Interview

    It was a very bad interview because the interviewer was unprepared and did not even look at my resume beforehand. He came off uninterested and I did not appreciate the length or the content of the interview.
