    Entretien

    Applied online and heard back from a recruiter in 1-2 weeks to schedule a 30 minute phone interview with them.

    The following week, I had a 45 minute Google Hangouts interview with the Design Director for the team. I talked a little bit about myself and my role and presented one case study.

    Two weeks later I had an onsite interview. It consisted of a 2 hour design exercise, portfolio presentation, lunch with the team, and 1:1s with research, engineering, and product.

    • For the design exercise, they kicked it off with asking me what were a couple of apps that I use and from there generated ideas on the exercise ask.   Répondre à cette question

    The first interview was harmless and with HR. He seemed to know a lot about the role and spent some time explaining it in detail. Asked specific questions as if reading off a list. The entire interview was 30 minutes and said it would be over a week until I heard further updates.

    New york office. A recruiter call then two interviewers for tech call, the main interviewer is not from the hiring team, and been around for 2 years, the audit interviewer is a new hire to the team.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • 3 questions, two sql+ 1 python (though can be also easily solved with sql). The sql question is about finding the most popular track and for each track, the day it had most popularity. the python question is about adding certain advs. seconds on every 3,5,15 stream a user had.

      The interviewer appears having limited experience with sql, as both interviewers had moments first doubting my code, then admit they made mistake. As one example, when doing an inner joining of two tables I had 'From tableA a, tableB b where a.metric=b.metric, the interviewer first asked me where's my inner joining of the two tables, as in her mind it should be written as 'From TableA a inner join TableB b on a.metric=b.metric'. After I explained, she realized both ways writing are equivalent.

      Though I got all three questions right and well explained, I did not pass the tech interview and there was no feedback.   1 réponse

    Phone screens and then an on-site. PM’s act very superior and yet their interviewing process lacks the creativity to ask engaging interview questions, which caused my interest to fall during my interview

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • What’s your product management philosophy? Anyone could blow hot air and noodle on this but I kept it simple and that didn’t seem to impress them. I imagine this attitude makes it difficult to get real things done.   Répondre à cette question

    *Overall summary*:

    30 min phone screening with HR, 1 hour behavioral interview with product design team via Google hangout, then a full day on-site interview consisting of a portfolio review, design challenge, 1:1 with PMs, lunch, 1:1 with engineers, and 1:1 with leadership team.

    All interviews with HR, designers and PMs were a positive experience. The weird and negative portion of the interview was towards the end, with the engineers and the leadership team. It gave me the impression that all product-related interviews follow the same structure, regardless of whether the questions they were required to ask were *actually* relevant to the role. Another weird aspect is that they pull in people from around the company to interview you in pairs. Some of the pairs of people I interviewed with never worked together. Odd way to interview.

    Feedback from HR throughout the entire interview process was fairly quick and timely, so that was definitely a plus.

    *The 1:1 with engineers*:

    This was the WORST portion of the entire interview process. The engineers asked me to present a design solution I'd worked on in the past. Then, they proceeded to ask me specifics on how the tech stack interacted with each design element I had come up with. I gave them examples on different types of feedback that my developers had come to me with and how we worked together to fix the design based on technical limitations, but I was pressed for really specific details on how the page worked on a technical level. I work very closely with developers in my current role, push front-end changes often directly in code, and do not consider myself to be a newbie to the intersection of design and tech and I found this interview portion difficult. For context, the role I was interviewing for was UX/research heavy and not tech-focused at all (even less so than my current role).

    At the end of the interview, I was curious and asked "So how familiar with the tech stack are the designers at Spotify? Do they work super closely with front-end, and work with devs to come up with technical solutions on the back-end?" The answer I was given: "Mmm.. no, the designers here tend to just stay in design and don't really do tech stuff or front-end." OK, so why did you spend an hour grilling me on tech and engineering?? What was the point of the past hour and what were you actually trying to test me for if it isn't relevant to the role?? If you're going to ask engineering and architecture questions for a design role, then I would think it's for at the very least a role that's more front-end coding heavy and not UX heavy, right?

    *1:1 with leadership*:

    I spoke with two directors about leadership, and basically how I behave in an office. To preface the entire interview they started off by saying "Okay, we have this series of questions and most of them are related to leadership... but your role is not a leadership role. So answer these the best you can in the perspective a team player on the team, if you don't have any management experience. It's totally okay." Again... why am I being asked questions that are not specific to the role?

    I was asked questions like "how do you build team morale?" and "describe your management style". Although this part of the interview was not as terrible as the engineering portion, it just again felt like they were just trying to go through a list of questions they were given regardless of whether it had any relation to the designer role I was interviewing for. I've never had an interview where the interviewers had to preface the questions with "so these questions don't REALLY directly relate to what you're interviewing for but let's pretend."

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris +4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Spotify (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en janvier 2020.

    Entretien

    The interview process started with a phone conversation with a recruiter who asked me a few questions about my background and some simple SQL, Python, and statistics questions.

    I was then invited to a video interview: one with the hiring manager and one with another data scientists for a tech screening. The conversation with the hiring manager was mainly about the role and expectations. During the tech screening, I was asked to solve one SQL problem and one Python problem.

    The final interview round was a take home assignment, in which I had to create a presentation to answer the question: what makes a playlist successful? The presentation was in front of the hiring manager and 4 other members of the team. I also had 1:1 conversational interviews with the members and the entire round took about 3 hours.

    I applied via LinkedIn and was contacted within 1-2 weeks. The overall process took 3 months. The recruiter was quite slow and unorganized. Everything was done remotely, including my final presentation.

    The HR team member I spoke with and who coordinated the process was really warm and fantastic. It was very clear that his goal was to build a strong team with passionate and diverse people, and I really enjoyed my initial screening with him. He really emphasized that Spotify is an environment where teamwork is critical and diverse backgrounds with a common passion really unite. Unfortunately, the second round interview that I had completely contradicted this message.
    The second round is a “technical” interview with another user researcher (on the team) and it was an experience that really soured my opinion of what I imagined the team at Spotify to be like. She was incredibly cold and rude- interrupting aggressively and often, and at times, even combative and competitive. I truly left that interview feeling disrespected and quite honestly in shock in a way that, after years in the industry, I’ve never been before. While the initial screening call emphasized the importance of teamwork and collaboration, this call with an actual team member completely disproved that.
