    Interview Details

    I was phone screened by 2 recruiters and the hiring manager and then interviewed by the recruiting team including the hiring manager and VP or HR. They covered everything about what the culture was like to what they expect from a new hire. It was a very transp[arent and foreard thinking. Also, very postive and team oriented. I was really impressed by their presentation and what they had to offer.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Corbis in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interviewers were cordial, the atomosphere was relaxed, and the location was stellar. However, during the three interviews the subject of senior management turnover came up. Related to this was other concerns about the frequent change in company direction which has led to a overly complicated infrastructure. While the opportunity seemed challenging, I left with a feeling that upward mobility was going to be difficult.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was rather easy and informal so I don't really have a difficult or unexpected interview question to provide.   View Answer
