Interview Details –
I was contacted by a Netflix recruiter and we set up a 1:1 phone interview. The interview went very smoothly and it was clear that I was able to exceed expectations in the position.
I sent a thank you letter that was set to arrive approximately 7 days after the interview.
I followed up with a phone call 2 weeks later and they did not return my phone call or acknowledge me as an applicant in the running for the position.
Approximately 1 month later, another recruiter from the same location interviewed me for the exact same position and had no idea that I had already interviewed for the position.

Interview lasted about 30 minutes, was asked basic questions about prior work history. Covered basic information about the company and it's coming goals in terms of headcount. Was asked a few questions about how I would handle coaching and possible terminations.
When I asked about growth potential the response was that it depends on performance, which was the same for bonus potential.

Interview Details – I was up for a operations supervisor job at Netflix's facility in Northboro, Ma. I went through all the interviews ranging from the operations manager, HR, and finally with the regional manager. They seemed to like me, the interviews went well until I asked a question to all of them. I told them the that the CEO of Netflix Reed Hastings made a comment in the Wall Street Journal in July addressing their shareholders, that Netflix plans to be 100 percent operation in 5-7 years with online streaming and will be getting out of DVD copies all together. So I asked all the interviewers if this is true what will become of operations personnel in that time frame. Well, they all became very defensive stutttering that there will always be a need for DVD copies blah blah blah. They all became very irate with the question. I was very surprised since I was asking a question based on a factual statement by the owner of the company. They ended up not offering me the job and when I asked the recruiter why he said that they all felt I would not be a team player. He stated the regional manager felt that my devotion to the corporate mission would be in question. Huh? All I asked was what they thought of the CEO's comment and how it would impact operations personnel in 5-7 years. Of course this implies that there might be a 70 percent reduction in their workforce if they go to online straming forcing most of their operations hubs to shutdown. What a joke! I'm glad I dodged that bullet. It would be the kind of job where you can feel your blood leaving your hands while gripping the steering wheel as you pull in to the parking lot go to work there every morning at 2am.

Interview Details – The interview consisted of 2 parts. The first is a basic phone screen with an in house recruiter.

Declined Offer – Interviewed in Apr 2011 – Reviewed Apr 11, 2011
Interview Details – I was put off by the phone interview and didn't take the HR rep's call when she wanted to set up a time for a face-to-face. She was rushed the whole interview, cutting me off mid-sentence and asking questions that she would have known the answers to had she listened when I was talking. Aside from that, she seemed rather rude. Granted, she could have been having a rough day, but if you're representing your company to potential employees then you need to get your act togethr and be on point.

Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Jun 2008 – Reviewed May 18, 2010
Interview Details –
Screened through a staffing service. Then phone interview. Afterward, an interview with manager and regional manager. If you recite everything you learn in business 101, you may make it. Tell them "there is no substitute for daily feedback on performance". It will give you a good foot in the door.
My advise, don't take the job. 14 bucks an hour is a pitiful wage for the amount of work and stress you will go through. If you butter up the manager and regional manager, you may get extra points.
Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation for this position. There is also almost a zero chance for promotion unless you move across the country. However, beware of taking a promotion, most people do not have their jobs after the first 1-2 years.
