    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Entertainment Partners.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter Called me, I spoke to the hiring manager, the team then the CEO. I feel like the team and hiring manager discussions went well and they were excited. The place obviously has some problems though. Part of the team felt like anyone they interviewed was probably going to replace them and were sort of hostile. I had actually been warned about the CEO from the hiring manager and got the vibe like she was a gigantic pain to all of her employees. He said she views herself as the real product manager to their main product of actor's compensation systems.

    Senior Payroll & Benefits Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Entertainment Partners in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by corporate recruiter after having applied for the job online. Was asked a couple of questions regarding the payroll system and pay rate. Immediately after that was invited for an in-person interview. Met with HR person and then Payroll Manager, both nice and affable. Came away, after our discussions, with the impression that they never really had any intention to hire anyone and that, by their own words, they were just "checking what's out there". They already have a temp person in this position who, according to them, is working out just fine. Based on this, a good employer would then offer the temp person a full time position, instead of keep searching and wasting people's time. I was not impressed at all. I have since secured employment with a great investment firm so in many ways I am glad this did not work; if anything, it allowed me to land a much better job opportunity.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked general questions about the new system they are implementing, which I am familiar with. Their corporate payroll encompasses 900 employees and I have processed payroll for 2600 employees. There were not tricky, technical or difficult questions.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Entertainment Partners in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very friendly and professional. The hiring manager conducted a phone screen initially and then I was interviewed in person. There wasn't a lot of "how would you do this or that" questions mostly describing what I did for a prior employer.

    • None too difficult I was asked what my weaknesses were. Problem was they didn't go into how the on-call or support hours were expected to be late evenings and could occur often as a regular kind of thing leaving you with no life.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No room for negotiation. It was a lower competitive offer with no wiggle room.

    Senior QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burbank, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burbank, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Entertainment Partners in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Got an email/call from HR. Scheduled a phone interview with the QA Manager. Afterwards, came in for an interview with him and a couple of other people. 2nd interview, had a group interview with at least 5 people(managers/QA Engineers), and a couple of single interviews with a VP of Engineering, and a Director of Engineering. A few days later, got a job offer call from HR.

    My perception during the interview was that the people who interviewed me seemed relaxed and easy-going; especially the ones in the group interview. They seem to get along with each other. The offices/cubicles looked professional(not outdated), and some people decorated their cubicles with cute things(tells me that it's ok to express your personality -- my last job when I decorated my office for Xmas, I was told that it looked like a college dorm, and to take down the decorations, except for a tiny Xmas tree on the filing cabinet.). I got the impression that this company has a fun work environment. As I passed by the cubicles, I didn't see people looking stressed and in a hurry to go somewhere.

    Ask questions like: what are the day-to-day activities of this job position? What's a productive day for this job position look like? What would you say is the greatest needs in your dept.? (Listen carefully to the answer, and then answer back with how your talents/skills set/ experience can meet these needs. I guarantee you, not many people ask this question in any interviews.)

    Interview Questions
    • How would you handle writing test cases for software requirements?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Nothing really. I asked if the salary could be higher, but I was told that it was the best they could offer at the time. If you have another job offer in hand, then you can try to negotiate with them.
