    Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Corbis in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I attended the internship fair with about 40 other attendees. There were 8 marketing interns and only 2 positions. The process was well structured but it seemed like a lot of time to spend in a room for only one, fifteen-minute interview. Overall, the atmosphere was fun and inviting but it seemed a little over the top. The fifteen-minute interview was conducted by a small panel of mangers within the hiring department and it was a more casual interview than I expected. Overall, I enjoyed the experience.

    Easy process. Met with people who wanted 50 words minimum but would not let me know how many words I actually used. Wish it was easier but easy it was. The movie itself was outstanding.

    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Corbis in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Started with a recruiter call followed by a meeting with the recruiter and some employees and then the hiring manager.

    It became apparent that the expectations from the current incumbent of the position and the reports into the position were not aligned with the expectations of the hiring manager.

    Never tell the candidate in the meeting that your expectations for the role are that the reporting headcount will be slashed from the current base. Emphasise that budget is constantly under review but no more than that.

    Photo Publicist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Corbis in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    Went in for an interview, and spoke with a couple of people that would be my immediate supervisors. Very thorough interview on my background experience and was given adequate information about the job's responsibilities. I have heard good things about their corporate culture, and respect the company a great deal, so I was interested in working there. However, at the interview I walked away feeling that growth for someone in a creative role is limited.
