I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Twentieth Century Fox in October 2013.
Interview Details – Had preliminary interview with two Human Resources managers. Then the second interview process was directly with the individual i was to work for. Both interviews did not take more than about forty minutes. Of course there is a lot of paperwork to be filled out.
My interview with my direct supervisor was a bit unusual. I didn't have any experience coming into this particular department, but it looked like my supervisor was anxious and desperate to just hire someone. Meeting with supervisor didn't take too long, and after leaving FOX, i felt duped as what I've done at the company was NOT what was in the job interview/hiring description. Again, very poor management over here.
Interview Question – Please tell us one negative thing about you and your working habit? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate the pay. At the time i received an offer from FOX, i had another job offer that came through that paid way better. Fox HR came back to me with a bit of a raised compensation, but they did not match the same pay offer as my other offer.
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Twentieth Century Fox.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Twentieth Century Fox in July 2012.
Interview Details – I had a friend who worked at FOX send my resume directly to the National Sales Director. He reached out and had an initial call with me and set up the interview. Went to one interview with 3 of the employees from the department and it went great! After the interview, I had a call with the SVP of Sales (located in NYC) that evening. The next day I received a call with an offer for the position.
Interview Question – Give me an example where you improved the process/position you're currently at. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The bump up from my previous salary was large enough I didn't have to negotiate the salary. I did have to explain that my previous boss wanted me to stay for 1 month (instead of the normal 2 week notice).
I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Twentieth Century Fox in January 2013.
Interview Details – They reached out via email as my resume had been passed through to them. We had an initial phone call and one face-to-face interview. I was offered the job over the phone the next day, but told I would need to wait to hear from HR about the official offer. Several days later it arrived. After reviewing the opportunity and offer, I declined the position mostly due to personal reasons. The job and company seemed great but just not right for me at that time in my life.
Interview Question – For me the most difficult question was answering whether I'd be happy making the switch from post-production to coordinating. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Wasn't the right job for me at that time.

A couple of hours later, I got a second round interview invite and interview the following week. Within a few hours after the interview, I was offered the job (verbally). It took about a week to go through the background check and reference checks and then was given a written/signed offer.
