    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Getty Images (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Since pair programming is important to Getty, my interview was a mock pairing session. I sat with two guys and a laptop, and was asked to solve a relatively simple coding question using TDD (test driven development). They had already set up the solution in Visual Studio and stubbed out the class we were going to write. I also had a quick chat about some trivia (aka what are SOLID principles, what does the keyword virtual mean, what's the difference between a span and div). Finally, I had a 10 min session with my potential manager, where he asked me the normal sort of questions like, why did I leave my previous company, what was the most challenging problem I had to solve, etc.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Getty Images (Seattle, WA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interview is usually run by a panel. The first round is with a recruiter and no the HR department. After the recruiter you will meet with the department hiring manager. If you make it past the hiring manager you get to meet the team. Based on passing you get the usual background check and offer letter. Here is where the meat is. Be sure that before you get the offer in writing that you have made clear what you expect for a salary.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Getty Images (Seattle, WA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    6 half-hour interviews in 3 hours, plus bookends by recruiters. Very conversational style, no hardball questions. In fact, they kind of spent a lot of time talking about themselves and the company, and I didn't really feel like I had to say much.

    Interview Questions

    • After the interview loop, I was asked to write a three-page business case.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were offering a good salary and the title I wanted. I asked for more, they said no, so I went with their original offer.

    IT Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Getty Images (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Interviewed with director of my org and the director of HR. Primarily informational, without any scenario based questions. I asked a few questions about their specific needs and the roles and responsibilities laid out in the job description. The interview went well, without any surprises, gotcha questions or scenario questions. It moved along quickly, then it was over with. Within a week, I was asked back to meet with some peers. This went reasonably well, with one individual focused on asking 'gotcha' type questions. It didn't go as smoothly as the first interview, but it was satisfactory. In general, I didn't feel that there was a great deal of 'meat' to either interview. I didn't feel that I had a good sense of whether it was a good fit or not. However, within a week, they made me an attractive offer which I accepted.

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate on the offer. I was looking for work, the offer was more than fair.

    Web Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Getty Images (Seattle, WA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    This was an unprofessional interview but the company sounded interesting. There were two interviews. The first was a 60 min technical interview with a web developer and software test developer. The second was a 30 min interview with the team lead. In the first interview I was greeted with, "I'm a horrible interviewer." Followed closely by "This isn't usual, but neither of us have even glanced at your resume. Nor have we talked with each other about what we're going to go over." I misunderstood several questions because they were worded oddly and I had to figure out what they were asking. I answered them the best I could but it was obvious I wasn't giving them the answer they wanted even for technically straight-forward answers. The last 20 min involved a pair-programming exercise that involved very strict test-driven development practices (i.e. you don't write a line of code until you've created a test for it and you don't write a second line of code until you write a test for it.) This was another culture fit scenario gauging how work with other people pair programming . The second interview was a relaxed culture fit interview which gauged my fit with the company's style.
