    I worked at GoPro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great and supportive team environment, flexible policies, free products and good discounts, free snacks, comfortable and good work place and facilities, good work life balance.

    Cons

    Company is in a serious down time.
    Sense of significant insecurity in recent years as the company is laying off many people.

    Advice to Management

    Hope they have learnt some lessons from mistakes they made during these years. The whole company burnt out too much money and now put itself to a terrible situation. They really need some clear vision about this industry.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GoPro.

    Interview

    Overall, I felt the interview experience with GoPro was very flexible, relaxing and interactive. It's more of a conversation atmosphere than a stressful screening process.

    Applied via the company website. Got the phone call from recruiter after about 2 weeks after application and had a basic conversation: I was asked to briefly go thru my CV and the recruiter introduced the job, I was notified about the further interview processes soon after the phone call;

    > Formal interview with the recruiter (around 1 hour): I personally found this round behavioral based and was meant to assess the personality, communication skills, as well as some general knowledge about electronics industry. There were a few behavioral questions, also got some detailed questions regarding my project experience in college as I was a grad applicant;

    > Interview with manager and senior workers (around 1.5 hours): this round I got some technical questions related to my area of expertise;

    > Interview with higher level manager of the team (around 30 minutes): this was also the final round, I introduced myself and asked some questions about the team.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation where working within a team environment,
      How do you handle multiple tasks,
      Given a situation and asked to provide my solution,
