Team Lead Interview

Team Lead
Seattle, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Technicolor in January 2014.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – 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?"   View Answer

Scheduling Coordinator Interview

Scheduling Coordinator

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Technicolor.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – 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

Director, IT Interview

Director, IT

Interviewed at Technicolor

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Anything is possible - with me, nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

Summer Intern Interview

Summer Intern
Princeton, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Technicolor.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – Descripe your research and show me how it fits for video compression   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation
