Technical Director Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Weta in January 2009.
Interview Details – The entire interview process was handled via email. The company vetted all my references prior to contacting me; Weta places a great deal of importance on your references and they will all be contacted and asked to answer a series of questions via email. Once the references were vetted, several more emails were exchanged and finally an offer was extended. There was opportunity for negotiation and good communication during the contract back-and-forth.
Interview Question – Weta did not ask any specific questions of me; all questions went to my references. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Yes, I was able to negotiate. You should always negotiate with a prospective employer since you're entering into a legal agreement that affects you both.
