    Product Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Helsinki, Southern Finland, Southern Finland
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Smartly.io (Helsinki, Southern Finland, Southern Finland) in Apr 2021

    Interview

    I had decide to pursuit the recruitment after read through all of the reviews on Glassdoor. So I understood the format and expected it will be lengthly and intensive one.

    2 months, 4 stages, 50+ work hours sunken (I made all the way to the last stage), however the feedback I got is just a phone call from recruiter said they decided to go with someone else. Well, what can I respond?😂 With this much of effort, I'd expect a technical break down of what went wrong, or what was suppose to be the "best" solution, or how can I improve from this?

    People warned me about the research task, that I need take course on FB ad campaign, etc. but I found it was quite delightful and not such a big hassle. However in my opinion, the knowledge that I gained in this research wasn't absolutely a must for the final design challenge. (so why not combine this research task with the final assignment?)

    About the design challenge, work flow and methodology were emphasised in the description which I think makes sense, since not many candidates have any experience with ad campaign manager. So I spent a lot of times on research, personas & user stories building, flow chart; trying to be engaged on Slack. To be frank, the interviewer didn't really want to do the "collaboration" part, all he said were just "do whatever you consider right". So why asking for collaboration? When you can just throw out the design challenge / assignment as any other company does.

    In the final review session, I did cover really all user stories / scenarios I could think of, and the interviewers agreed that my solution were thorough and fulfilled all the requirements.

    Advice to Smartly.io: If you're interested only in the final design solutions, then be upfront about it. With no real collaboration in brainstorming the solution process which interviewer tell what he expect / want , there are tons of ways to solve or even understand the design challenge. So this is virtually become a "guessing" game in which candidate will try to guess what solution the interviewers will most likely hook on. So cut short the recruitment process (initial call, portfolio review, research task), divert time to the final assignment. It will save everyone's time.
