    Intern Interview

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

    I applied online – interviewed at United Talent.

    Interview Details

    Knowing people definitely helps in this industry. However, there is also an unspoken respect if you get the job on your own merits. Expect a lot of college students, not as many graduate students. There are spots saved for certain schools. The program is very competitive and very small, only about 15 are admitted. The interview is a phone interview with one of the agents. You're not given a lot of advance notice about which agent so that you can do research on them. If you are given the time, do your due diligence and know everything you can about the agent. This is the first time in which you are expected to know everything about the agents. This will continue during your internship and into a position as an assistant if given the opportunity. Be prepared. Speak intelligently about what you are interested in and why.

    Director of Facilities Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beverly Hills, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at United Talent.

    Interview Details

    One of the worst interview processes I have ever been through. Met the first time In February with 3 people (2 very nice and the third horrible). Called back in April and met with 2 more people. Finally called back again in May (4 months later) to meet with 5 people. Was totally thrown under the bus by the COO, who was more interested in impressing his staff with his "inquisition type questions" and catering to his already inflated ego.

    Interview Questions
    • The COO attempted to embarrass me because I did not wish to interview again, especially when one of the candidates was a close friend of the CEO. Unfortunately he attempt backfired and all he accomplished was to make his staff squirm and feel very uncomfortable.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at United Talent in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Either have to know someone who works there or have a very strong resume. They don't care as much about what's on your resume but rather what kind of a person you are. Have some hobbies ready to say. Also, be prepared to wait. I had to wait 1.5 hours for my turn.

    Interview Questions

    Mailroom Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at United Talent in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got the the interview through a personnel agency. My temp agent set up the interview and a week later I went off to UTA. I waited in the lobby with other potential agent trainees, then was called in by Michael Conway's (Head of hiring) assistant. I sat down with both of them and Mr. Conway asked me a few basic questions: where I was from, what I went to school for, what was school like, what my passions were, and why I wanted to be an agent. The interview was fairly short, around 15 to 20 minutes. Ultimately, I didn't get an offer. I think he looks for someone who's confident, unflappable, and personable enough to make a big impression.

    Submitted resume and was asked to interview.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations. Don't even bother. If you don't like the pay, you won't be working here. Everyone is paid the same and starts at the same salary. Bonuses every year are abysmal. You're not working in Hollywood for the money.
