    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CBS Interactive.

    Interview Details

    Quick and easy interview process; one call with recruiter and then an in-person interview to meet the team managers. Everyone is extremely nice and it's a lot of "why CBSi," what properties of CBSi's interest you and why," etc. If you actually like a lot of the CBSi properties, great. If not, then just spend a few hours researching them and you'll do fine.

    I first had a really quick phone interview going over the details of my resume with the hiring manager. I was then invited to come on-site in San Francisco for the second-round. I talked with the hiring manager about some of the tasks that I would have to do over the summer. I also talked with 2 other members on the team.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position and received an impromptu phone interview the next day. The interview was very casual and conversational. It took 3 weeks to schedule an on-site. After a few weeks I was offered the position. Interview process takes a while. Would be good to have other companies in mind.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at CBS Interactive in January 2014.

    I had my first phone interview with the HR. She was very thorough and had arranged another phone interview with the creative director. After that, the creative director had an 1:1 interview with me. I showed him my boards and reels with detailed explanation of project involvement and the type of softwares I used. Few days after, I met with the VP and the HR manager. They went over my salary expectation and how I see myself growing in the company. It was overall a great experience.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CBS Interactive.

    Interview Details

    I spoke to the recruiter at my job fair on February and heard back from HR within a month. The phone interview was a mix of behavioral and technical questions that were relatively straightforward( ie: four principals of oo design, basic java syntax, etc). The recruiter made it clear that he was impressed and insisted that he and HR will be getting in touch with me soon. I never heard back.
