Director Interview

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Netflix (San Francisco, CA) in May 2015.

Interview

I was approached via an executive recruitment agency for the role. As part of the procedure around 8 interviews were held, including global CFO and CLO. these interviews were partly via web call, partly in person. During the interviews I had a very positive experience. Interviewers could detail out the role and the expectations, Netflix culture and values. The 'aftercare' was unprofessional. After the final interview there was silence, a long silence. After several emails and calls still silence. Finally I had to learn via the recruitment agency that the silence meant they would not move further with the position. Up to today still no feedback from the Netflix team about why they did not want to move on, the position is still open. To my view you should always tell candidates about the decision positive or negative, either via a short email, or even better in a short phone call.

Interview Questions

  • There were no unusual questions, nor in depth topic related questions. The role was a senior director function, and was more a relation building discussion.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Netflix (Los Gatos, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter regarding my resume submittal via their company career site approximately one week after I had applied. The recruiter asked me basic questions related to the position and I also provided him with a high-level description of my background. It was obvious the recruiter was asking questions directly from a pre-prepared screening script. I was called back the next day and scheduled to hold an additional phone interview with one of the top C-level Executives of the company a few days later. The conversation went well with this individual and I more than satisfied his criteria for being able to perform the job to the point that after our 45-minute conversation he let me know I would be flown to their corporate office in Los Gatos, CA for face-to-face interviews while still on the phone with him. One week later I am on-site conducting my 5 back-to-back interviews with the leadership and am blowing them out of the water with my knowledge. Everything was going great UNTIL asked what my current total compensation package was with my employer. Let it be known that no one within this organization asked this question until now. Once I informed them of where I stood, things slowly began to turn south and at the end of my interview sessions was told “you are a great fit for this role but we are not sure you would be a fit for our culture”. This was obviously a BS excuse for them to save face with compensation PR. I am sure if my answer to the compensation question was 25k or 30k less than what I told them – I would have been made an offer. What a big waste of time and money for all parties involved.

    Interview

    Terrible process. HR was really messed up. Very negative. People were more concerned about fireing people fast than hiring.
