    Growth/Conversion Manager-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Anonymer Bewerber im Vorstellungsgespräch in Berlin
    Kein Angebot
    Positive Erfahrung
    Durchschnittl. Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 6 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2019 bei Spotify (Berlin).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Zunächst musste ein Online Assessment absolviert werden. Dabei wurde getestet, ob mein Persönlichkeitsprofil zur Position passt, außerdem logisches Denken und analytische Fähigkeiten. Man bekommt die Ergebnisse samt Tipps zur Verbesserung nach Abschluss des Tests.
    Zwei Tage später kam die Einladung fürs erste Interview mit einem Recruiter aus London (Hangouts). Sympathisches, eher leichtes Gespräch. 2 Tage später Einladung für ein F2F Interview mit dem Hiring Manager in Berlin. Ich glaube, dass dieses Gespräch je nach Führungskraft unterschiedlich verlaufen kann. Meines war sehr locker, angenehm und hat mir einen guten Überblick über das Anforderungsprofil gegeben. Der ganze Prozess verzögerte sich. Eine Absage kam 4 Wochen nach dem persönlichen Gespräch rein; auf Zwischennachfrage kam nur ein kurzes Feedback mit der Bitte um Geduld.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juni 2019 bei Spotify (Düsseldorf).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Zuerst habe ich ein sehr nettes Interview mit dem HR-Kollegen aus UK geführt, welcher schon nach sehr kurzer Zeit anrief. Leider wurde der Kontakt nach diesem sehr positiven Gespräch dann deutlich problematischer und Absprachen dauerten deutlich länger und brachen teils ab. Ich wurde dann direkt zum Hauptverantwortlichen nach Düsseldorf weitergeleitet. Dort war man sehr nett, das Gespräch verlief gut jeder, den ich kennenlernen durfte, war sehr nett. Man war sehr kritisch und am Ende hat man sich auch gegen mich entschieden, aber es waren gute und spannende Gespräche. Ich sollte zudem eine Präsentation vorbereiten und diese zu Ende des Vorstellungsgespräches vorstellen.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Mai 2018 bei Spotify (New York, NY (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The interview process took 10 weeks from start to finish and included 3 in person meetings and several phone calls. This is an insane amount of time and interviews for a mid level paralegal position. They went for weeks without updating me on the interview process and I had to send a few requests for an update before they finally told me that I would not be receiving an offer. Overall the interview process was pretty negative, drawn out and unprofessional (the recruiter I was working with quit and the new one had no idea where I was in the interview process). I am grateful for not getting this job, as I am in a much better position somewhere else, with better benefits and pay. So it all worked out I suppose.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Mai 2013 bei Spotify (New York, NY (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    A Talent Acquisition rep reached out to me via LinkedIn, indicating that they wanted to talk to me about a Javascript Engineer position. I responded (via LinkedIn) that I was interested in the position. After not hearing back for over a week I contacted the rep directly (their email address was listed publicly).

    The rep responded within minutes to let me know that she didn't handle the Javascript Engineer position and that she would pass my resume off to the correct person. I was included on the hand-off / handshake email. The new rep responded almost immediately and requested that I re-send my resume (even though the hand-off email included all of my LinkedIn details and a copy of my resume).

    After some back-and-forth to confirm that the phone number listed on my resume (the same number that appeared in the signature of all of my emails) was the best number to reach me, we scheduled a phone call for later in the week. The phone call was simply to confirm that I was interested in the previously-discussed Javascript Engineer position and that I was capable of writing "non-jQuery" Javascript. With those points established we scheduled a second phone call with an engineer for the following week.

    When the engineer called, he hadn't seen my resume and knew nothing about me other than my name and that he was to quiz me on all things Javascript. The first few questions were straight-forward; "what's the difference between 'var x = 0' and 'x = 0'". Subsequent questions were vague and covered some broad topics, "describe closures", "describe a couple design patterns", etc.

    After the quiz we talked about the range of products & tools teams worked on as well as the way Spotify constructs its teams. Because the engineer knew nothing about me or which position I was interviewing for, he couldn't provide any detail about the team or product I'd be working on.

    Why was I contacted by someone about a position they had no control over? Why did I have to wait 3 days to have a 5 minute phone call just to verify that I was applying for the position they had contacted me about? Why hadn't the interviewing engineer been given a copy of my resume and been told which position I was interviewing for? While everyone I spoke to was friendly, there was a general air of disinterest. The entire process felt muddled and impersonal which is unfortunate, considering that the process was started when the company reached out to me.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im September 2011 bei Spotify (New York, NY (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Very disorganized. I interviewed for a software engineer position in 2011, meeting with a bunch of people, half of whom thought I was going for a data scientist position. Everyone at this stage was very friendly. This was followed by a Skype meeting with one of the VPs from Stockholm - at this point the Spotify recruiter said I should expect an offer within the next couple of days.

    Despite attempts to follow-up, two weeks go by and no response. Just as I was about to give up on the position, they get back to me and tell me that the VP flew into the US and wants to meet with me in person. We arrange that. 15 minutes before the scheduled time, after I had driven an hour to NYC and while I was waiting outside their office, I get an email that says the position has been filled and the interview has been cancelled. Maybe it was an honest mistake, but I came out of it with a pretty poor impression of the company's hiring process.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Tage. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im April 2013 bei Spotify (San Francisco, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I had an initial phone screen with an HR person. It was a basic screen, but then she asked me some technical questions about objective c. That when OK and I had another phone screen with the hiring manager. The questions he asked were very text book and not really problem solving ones. So I didn't really know some of them because I hadn't cracked a cs text book in a while. So I was pretty unsure about the next step. But I waited for the recruiter to call me back and she never did.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Responded within 24 hours after I submitted the application. Really interesting job requirements. Went through two phone interviews, basic knowledge questions and not hard coding problems. Went on-site for interviews about two weeks after the last phone interview. Everything feels good, the company is clearly a more than awesome place to work in, though I myself is to blame to code some really dirty in one of the coding interviews. That can be the major reason I am rejected.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • There is only one unpleasant experience, it is the system design interview. The interviewer kept prying the system architecture I designed in my last summer internship, where I did in a small startup. He asked every details and clearly impatient and displeased with the simple design I brought about. That made me uncomfortable, since his questions are based on some facts which already happened in the past and there is nothing I can change about. And clearly my design is also based on the practical need and some conventions already established in that company. Wouldn't it be more proper that questions are drawn like "what's your opinion over XXX situation? what's your ideal design if faced with XXX?" Instead, I am getting responses like "Oh so you guys make it this simple? Why?" with displeased expressions. I felt it so unfair since he was evaluating the company I interned in but not myself. Just hope these kind of interview questions can be better designed. nobody likes being put in the situation that either you lie about the things you did or you admitted some naive design you have applied, which is actually very reasonable under that certain practical circumstance.   Frage beantworten

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The day after showing initial interest in working at Spotify, I was contacted by HR. A week later, I went in for lunch, an architectural interview with some members of the team, followed by informal coffee interview afterwards. I was also giving a take-home project to work on, and a week to complete it. A few days after going in to their office, I chatted on Skype with the director of engineering to answer any lingering questions I had. A couple days after submitting the take-home project, I received an offer.

    Yes - I was given an initial offer, and asked for about 15% more. They counter-offered of about 1/2 that, plus a signing bonus. It was very friendly and quick (1 day turn-around).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I initially had to create an HTML5/JS webapp using the Spotify Metadata Web API. Once this effort was deemed worthy I had a phone screen to go over my solution. The phone screen went well and I was invited to the office to interview for four hours in the following topics:
    1) Overall development pattern discussion (pub/sub, MVC, etc) with some basic JS problems
    2) Culture fit over 1:1 lunch
    3) System design (build an app, what technologies would you use, how would you setup your database schema, etc)
    4) Another review of my initial programming challenge with some algorithm-focused questions

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Januar 2013 bei Spotify.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Phone interview and onsite.

    1) 1 round phone interview covers all the basics of computer science i.e, OS, synchronization, networking, distributed systems, software engineering process. Then there were 2 simple coding questions on shared editor.

    After this they said there will be an onsite. Recruiter called me to check about my salary details. When I told my salary, bonus, equity per annum which is like 105k + 10k + 7k recruiter remained silent. He then said he will get back to me about the schedule for the onsite. Since they did not want to proceed because of salary they for formality arranged a 2nd phone round interview. Obviously it was not technical interview and they just said they won't proceed after that.
