    Heard about the job opening through a referral. The hiring manager's office reached to set an interview. Dealt with hiring manager directly first, then once the ball was rolling HR stepped in to handle logistics.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Paramount Pictures in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews, the first with the VP, Marketing, the second with VP, Marketing & Acquisitions. Both interviewers were thoughtful and open executives, and made a conversation about their business and my skills and experience very natural. Follow-up emails and correspondence that I sent was graciously replied to by the VP, Marketing. I didn't get the job, but came away with respect for the organization.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Paramount Pictures.

    Interview Details

    I first emailed my resume and cover letter to the director of the Paramount internship program and she forwarded them to the recruiter. Got a phone call from the recruiter to talk about my interests and he suggested that I interview with the accounting/finance department due to my major. After a week, I was brought in for an in-person interview with my future supervisors. Oh and there was an excel test because my job requires a lot of excel.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Paramount Pictures in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a group interview with 4-5 other individuals. It consisted of chatting together in a group, and then speed dating a separate interviewer every few minutes. Although they told us they would get back to us the next week regardless of whether we were extended offers, I did not hear back from them until 2 weeks later.

    Finance Intern Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Paramount Pictures in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter is very prompt with follow-ups and keeping potential employees in the loop with HR's process. Was looking for a summer internship very late in the recruiting season; I applied to Paramount from the Bay area and received an email to schedule phone interviews about 1-2 weeks after. The recruiter was extremely nice and managed to schedule 3 separate interviews with different finance groups. In all 3 instances, the interviewers were very nice and the interviews were mainly behavioral. One or two logic-testing questions may pop up and catch you off guard.

    The interview that got me an offer mainly revolved around talking about my excel skills and experiences. VBA is looked favorably upon.
