    Very organized interview process. I had to go in a few times, but HR was great with coordinating everything. Questions were easy - top-level. Nothing to be worried about if you're going in!

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Twentieth Century Fox in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied for this post through dice.com and after a week HR manager interview was scheduled. It was basic round discussion about what type of team you want, they where more particular about treatment meted out in team. whether you are looking for more control of team. Questions where more about work culture. The next week I have been scheduled for 2 and half hour interview in their LA Office. First had an interview with SR IT manager. Questions in SRS after functional requirement is recieved, what you will do , general Spring MVC based questions. Explained them well. Then had an interview with Technical architect.
    Questions: What is the best work you have done in IT career?
    Explain sorting and what is divide and conquer algorithm?
    what is Hashing?
    No other technical architect questions It seems(funny though).
    Then had an interview with Director of IT. More general , bird eye view questions. Questions about Memory management, how you manage a team, Security and webservice questions. Answered them well.
    Last interview with senior person from Director level. Asked question on arraylist, pseudo code , Diff between rest and SOAP.

    I expected the interview to be lot tougher and Seems the management and people on top seems under qualified.
    Being a such a big company I expected the IT team to be really good . But seems they are not up to market or industry standard if you compare with other big companies. They seems to be selecting people who have worked in digital studios/media based companies like Disney, news . Seems even if you have worked one year in some project in disney in the time period you wouldn't had learnt anything, Still they consider you are the Right one.
    Advice to FOX:
    There are lot of good resource from Different industry who will infuse fresh blood and a way out of box thinking which will help IT to revolutionize your environment. I am not convinced in your hiring policy and whether it is adding value .

    Interview Questions
    • I would say the position is for technical lead and The interview was conducted as if its for some other job. No relevance to interviewing process and role they are looking for. Not even a single technically challenging or java related questions popped up which we normally undergo.   Answer Question

    Production Accountant Interview

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Twentieth Century Fox.

    Interview Details

    I applied to a position on a generic job board that did not show the employer's name.
    Because of the anonymity, I am not sure what the turn around time was from that submission to being contacted.
    I was contacted by telephone and asked to complete an online application.
    I did so and was followed up by coordinators on behalf of the recruiter.
    Within two weeks I was asked to interview. The background check and references were verified prior to an invitation to interview.
    The interviews were 3 days.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked about a position that was advertised as 6 months employee, but the question was if I would accept as a 2 year contract at half the advertised rate of pay (and remember - this is as a contractor!).   Answer Question

    Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed 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.

    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 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.

    Digital Copy Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Century City, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Century City, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. 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 Questions
    • For me the most difficult question was answering whether I'd be happy making the switch from post-production to coordinating.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Wasn't the right job for me at that time.
