- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deluxe Entertainment (Burbank, CA) in June 2015.
I applied online and their Senior Technical Recruiter called me for a phone screen/interview. I missed the call, but followed up with a voicemail and email that I'll be available to speak at her earliest convenience. She emailed me back a time and I agreed, but she called me an hour later. The phone interview was very quick and no tricky questions. She just wanted to know your background a little and talk a little about why the position exists. She didn't provide a hiring timeline, which isn't helpful. I followed up twice with her and never heard back. Very unprofessional with the lack of transparency and communication. Definitely a one-way recruiter.

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Deluxe Entertainment (New York, NY).
Good cop-bad cop. Sitting in front a handful of ppl. Feel like a firing squad. No one smiles. Left feeling like they didn't like me. Made me wait an extra 15-20 minutes for the boss to get done with what they were doing. No apology made.
- What can you bring to the company? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Deluxe Entertainment (Burbank, CA) in May 2015.
Simple process. .Didn't have too many steps Technical questions were easy. They were more interested if I can fit into their team. 2 rounds of interviews. Manager and team lead. I didn't think I would be challenged enough and lose interest.

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Deluxe Entertainment.
I was promised one figure during first interview, then was grinded down throughout the 3-step interview. The whole experience was fine, until I met with my to-be manager. The whole interview was awkward and at times unprofessional. I was told I will only work overtime "once in a blue moon"--that was a lie; you will work overtime every day, if you're salary. I was told I would only work on some weekends--that was also a lie; you will work from home every weekend.
- Where are you from? Do you have any family obligations that will keep you from working late every night and or weekends? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deluxe Entertainment (New York, NY) in January 2015.
The interview went really well and I really enjoyed speaking with the Operational Manager. He was candid during the entire experience and was very friendly. He explained the duties of the role and complimented many of the skills I had listed on my resume. Office was beautiful and the people there seemed friendly enough. I haven't gotten an offer from them, but he explained there was an issue with the position and HR. I would gladly accept any position there, seemed like a cool place to work.
- What software experience do you have and how does it relate to job description? 1 Answer

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deluxe Entertainment (Burbank, CA).
Called me for interview and had two rounds with 3 people in the panel in each round. They asked me in the first round questions about my past work experience. One of the significant questions was ' Whether I have had any problems with my bosses in the past' I was wondering why they asked that because i never had such a problem before. Now I know why because its quite difficult to stay in that company and say the same after having worked there. They also asked me a few other questions. The technical round had some easy practical questions and some more complicated theoretical questions.
- They asked some quite easy programming questions. Something like given a sentence, find how many 'a's are there. And other questions along these lines. 1 Answer
- All other questions were regarding past experiences and work that I have done. Answer Question
- They asked in detail theoretical questions about Inheritence concept in Java. Answer Question
I did not negotiate a lot. They offered me 50K and after a lot of negotiation i got 52K. I took it just out of need of H1B Visa.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deluxe Entertainment (Burbank, CA) in April 2014.
It was pretty basic. It started with "tell me about yourself." Then followed up with questions about my experience in the subject. I had a second interview where I was asked how I deal with stress and high emotions. I knew that should have been a red flag. The interview was easy and laid back.
- Tell me about yourself. 1 Answer

I applied online and got a call back from a recruiter and they set up an interview with the heads of the department. We had a very friendly and non stressful conversation. I saw a lot of people around and the employees seem to be very casual. You don't see a lot of suits, mostly jeans and t-shirts.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Deluxe Entertainment in February 2014.
Applied online at Deluxe Job board. Several weeks later received an email from HR asking for more information from me. Shortly after received a phone call to schedule an in-person interview. In-person interview scheduled for a few days later. Interview questions were generally standard and I got a good feeling, however the job ad had not noted this was a swing-shift position, so I had to opt out. Most of their ads do specify if they are, but this one didn't and it wasn't mentioned to me over my phone call either, so I had no clue. Noted below are the questions/parts I had difficulty with.
- What are you most passionate about? Answer Question
- Very specific written test for what is a highly visual/hands-on position. Asking which keys you would use to do a certain thing in FCP which if you use a lot just becomes second nature. But overall the questions made sense as to why they would be asking, I would have just preferred a practical exam. Answer Question
- If you remove two lines of resolution from the top of an interlaced frame and four lines of resolution from the bottom, will the fields be reversed? Answer Question
