I've heard Exponent is a great resource for interview prep. I'm pretty sure they've got a ton of Tik Tok related interview prep on there. Congrats on the interview!

Amazing, thank you!

My sister interviewed there and she thought it was pretty relaxed.

😊 Usually it will be like this:
1st round - HR screening explaining the R&R and forward your profile to your team.
2nd round - With your manager discuss hard skills
3rd round - With team leader discuss more skills like project mgmt
4th round - Cross dept interviewer who will work with u closely once join - to confirm if u fit this role -hard & soft skills combined
5th round - With HRBP - to see if u fit the company culture, team collaboration, etc.,
6th round - standard HR interview - behavior
--- offer negotiation

Be yourself, be passionate, be professional and they love diversity.

I've heard their interview process is pretty standard - nothing crazy so you should be fine with some prep! Good luck!!

Oh wow! 8 years! Things have changed buddy. I think the best advice I can give is to make sure you understand the value that TikTok brings to the customer and how your role can support that and expand it.

There are usually several rounds. The first one should be a standard "getting to know you" type interview. I know it's been awhile, but try not to sweat it. Just be yourself.

I've interviewed there before and have a good friend who is a leader at TikTok. It isn't all that different than other tech interviews. However, they are young and have growing pains, so don't be surprised if your interviewer isn't necessarily so prepared (an experience I had). If I can be of more help at TikTok or any other top tech company, hit me up on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/in/alanjstein/) and I'll see how I can help.

I am working towards a promotion within my same team in the near future but an Account Manager position has opened up now in the construction space within our office. Should I voice my interest in the construction AM role even though I have a limited amount of construction experience or wait the six months for the AM position on my current team?

How do you advocate for a "level" promotion in a company that has vague unofficial descriptions of levels? I'm doing L4-5 (on standard levels, or L3 within our system) work but can't get away from the unofficial "L2".

Making 140k with 7 yrs experience in this role, and 12 prior years experience in Systems Engineering roles. I know someone on my team is at 180k with a similar career.

Fighting with my manager atm on definitions of levels and feel like its a red herring.
