I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Technicolor (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.
Applied online. 1-2 phone interviews/calls with HR rep, in-person meeting with Hiring Manager. All Technicolor staff were courteous and professional. Job description was extensive on paper but ambiguous in person when asked about actual work to be performed and how performance to be measured. Company going through restructuring, recent layoffs, and high workload. Welcome to corporate America.

I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Technicolor (Memphis, TN) in March 2015.
Pass drug test and background check. They did not check any references or need a resume. It was simply pass the test and get the address. It would have been helpful if they would have mentioned that nobody can leave the building for lunch.
- The only thing they asked for was hours of availability. 1 Answer

Applied for a position online and received an email from an HR employee stating that my resume` was impressive and wanted to know what was my minimum salary requirements. After several email exchange, their HR set a phone interview and confirmed the time and date. The day of the interview, Technicolor's HR never called at all. I emailed and called a couple of days later to follow up, never received a call again. This is NOT the kind of company you want to be dealing with. UNPROFESSIONAL!

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Technicolor.
Submitted to a Craigslist posting, and was contacted directly by manager - HR coordinator was never involved in the process, nor was then-CEO. Was hired via phone after initial in-person interview, and only met HR person afterwards when completing paperwork.
- Really can't say - questions were pretty direct and only regarding my experience. No "why do you want to work for us," etc. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Technicolor (Seattle, WA) in January 2014.
Initially contacted from in-house recruiting requesting resume, which lead to technical/leadership telephone interview. Then was flown to Seattle for an all-day interview with 6 team members and a recruiter. The entire experience was very well conducted, and not at all unpleasant.
- No really difficult or unexpected questions, but the first question from each of the interviewers was, "What is the most significant thing you have done as a leader?" 1 Answer

As is typical, meetings with HR first, then hiring manager, then others. Not necessarily structured interviews. On the Technicolor side, they will share relevant details about the job, the company, etc. - expect good and honest answers to your questions. Phone interviews are likely as the company is spread out over multiple countries. They won't likely fly you somewhere for an interview unless it's necessary and you're a finalist.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Technicolor (Princeton, NJ).
So I got an interview call after one of my friends working there, referred me. Although I am an international student here and I am aware of my thick accent, the guy on the phone had an even thicker accent than I have! Nevertheless, he was a cool guy and turned out to be my mentor during the internship. He asked many questions on MPEG standard (e.g. Intra and Inter frame predictions, CABAC and so on), No coding question was asked. The whole interview took one hour and all of that involved asking non-trivial questions and at the end he asked me Do you have any idea to research on when you'd join here. I had some ideas and that guy liked it, so I guess that's why I got the internship. So be prepared about that kind of question.
- Descripe your research and show me how it fits for video compression Answer Question
There was no negotiation
