    Anonymous Employee  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Corbis in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was asked invited to interview over the phone by HR person in Seattle. Was told that she'd get back to me the following week about an in-person interview but I never heard from again. The woman I interviewed with was flustered and admitted she was exhausted. Didn't seem very interested in having to interview me.

    Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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 Questions
    • 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
