    Lighting TD Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rhythm & Hues Studios (El Segundo, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewing was usually painless and I never felt like I was being grilled or intentionally stressed by the interviewers. The questions posed were on par and appropriate in how the information related to the job in question. Even during my first interview with Rhythm & Hues, I felt like I was part of the family.

    Interview Questions

    • A few questions required a deep understanding of pipeline related issues and I feel that they were posed appropriately. I felt that the more difficult questions were valuable to them in gauging whether I had the aptitude to work in the more technical or artistic departments. Again, I never had the impression that the questions posed were with malicious intent.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Simple. We were able to quickly arrive at an agreement with no more than 2 short phone conversations or emails. They are VERY honest about their financial situation and ability or inability to meet satisfactory financial compensation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rhythm & Hues Studios (El Segundo, CA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly simple and straightforward as I had worked there before as a Junior FX TD. Both interviews were not as complicated as for other studios. They mainly ask you questions about what is on your demo reel.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the most complex effect you have done so far and explain it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    For the first time as a Junior, none. For the second time, you give them a number and they try to match it. They will also provide you with relocation and great health benefits.
