Twist Image Interview Questions & Reviews in Canada
Getting an Interview
Web Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Twist Image in November 2011.
Interview Details – Two interviews, one with the two Tech Directors (at the time) as well as one with the COO. Fairly standard, discussed past technical work, projects I've worked on. With COO was more informal in regards to my thoughts about working in the advertising industry. There was no test involved, more so they were looking for the right fit.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work in advertising? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation available besides a delayed start date.
QA/Automation Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Twist Image in August 2013.
Interview Details – Got a phone call from the Toronto office after a few days I submitted CV. Was very friendly with the typical questions, had an interview a week later. At the interview, things started off wrong. The manager and QA lead had my interview 15 mins late (I was in 10 mins early). The manager said things were busy, which I found very odd since I clearly saw her walking around without talking to anybody while waiting.
Once the interview started, they asked basic QA questions. The thing that made me truly think I wasted my time was when they mentioned "we'd like someone to start" to work on automated tests. Clearly they had no clue what they wanted based on the questions asked. Anyways, I completed a QA quiz online and never heard from them since. Very unprofessional when they said they would get in touch with me. Based on the reviews, I'm not surprised this company is not doing well with it's employees. At least I improved my interview skills :)
Interview Question – How do you go about creating a test case? Answer Question
Web Integrator Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and interviewed at Twist Image.
Interview Details – I applied online. After a little more than a week they called me for an in-person interview to tell me they were looking for someone with more industry experience. They asked me some general questions about my CV and asked me to elaborate. Nice office, nice location in Montreal. The interviewer was friendly.
Account Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Twist Image in May 2012.
Interview Details – HR call for a short interview. She can't describe the job for well and doesn't know how to sell the role. As if she was saying "It's a crappy so do you want it or not?"
1:1 interview was alright. They just referred to my resume for questions and didn't ask anything difficult. An awkward silence at one point, I didn't know what was happening, so I asked a question. Just didn't seem like they care or was into asking questions, I thought I presented myself quite well. They don't have a lot of clients just big ones. Employees dress down big time.
Account Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Twist Image in November 2011.
Interview Details – Interviewed with Account Director and Account Supervisor - in English french is not a necessity. Emphasis on behavioral questions and hypothetical situations. They use Microsoft project as a project management tool so they want to know if you have experience with that. Somewhat disappointing that they emphasized they would get in touch "either way" and never got back in touch or replied to follow up emails, pretty unprofessional in that regard.
Interview Question – Describe how you overcame a problem or personal issue with a client. Answer Question
