Account Management Junior Associate Interview

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Corbis in April 2014.

Interview Question – The salary range question was unexpected.   Answer Question

Marketing Intern Interview

Marketing Intern

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – No difficult questions, none you wouldn't expect. They did ask about other companies you though were doing well or poorly with their marketing That could throw someone off if they weren't expecting it.   Answer Question

Photo Publicist Interview

Photo Publicist
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – How would you handle a difficult PR contact?   Answer Question

IT Manager Interview

IT Manager
Seattle, WA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – This is not a technical position however if you need to be technical can you do it?   Answer Question
