    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures.

    Interview

    I found the posting online, applied, was contacted about two weeks later to set up first interview. The first round is a group interview. Show your personality and be bubbly -- the interviewers are looking to see how you'll interact with your tour guests. The second round is a couple weeks later and is a one-on-one interview, and it was pretty easy and brief.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me directly. 1 st phone interview with whole panel, totally technical questions. It was an hour interview, everybody was very nice and helpful. They asked relevant questions. 2nd was online interview where they would ask you some troubleshooting scenarios and test your practical network knowledge. I aced the interview but due to no immigration sponsorship i have stopped follow up with HR. HR is the worst part of this company they might need to improve on that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Hollywood, CA).

    Interview

    Interviewed with HR who were all very nice. Overall, they mostly asked about current position, why the position was desired. None of the "where do you see yourself in 5 years" type of questions were asked. They were very positive and prepped for the in-person interviews. In-person interviews included two managers who were mostly concerned with information directly related to the current position.

    I did not attempt to negotiate.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures.

    Interview

    Was called by HR to interview, and was brought in immediately. I was sent first to the team the position was with, and interviewed briefly with all the members of the very small group, didn't meet with HR at all. Was called back for a second round, being told "HR interview first, then interview with the head of the team". After meeting with HR to discuss salary and hiring timeline, I met again with the team, but the head of the team was "busy", so I was told we would have to reschedule. Weeks went by and after attempting to reach out to HR I never heard anything.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward. I interviewed with HR on the phone first. Afterwards i came on lot on two separate occasions to interview with HR and the individual members of the department in which I was looking to get hired. Most of the questions were philosophical or personality/getting to know you kinds of questions, rather than tests of my abilities.
