Application Details

I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Warner Bros. in December 2012.

Interview Details

Overall, I was very pleased with the HR and hiring process until the very end. About a 4-6 weeks after submitting my resume online, I was contacted by an HR coordinator who conducted a brief phone interview (salary requirements, why I wanted to leave my current job, why I applied to Warner Bros, etc.), then she asked me to come in for a skills test and to meet with her the following week. The skills test entailed about 10-12 questions for different MS programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and a timed typing test at the end). If you use these programs in your daily workplace, its pretty simple. Then, I met with the HR coordinator again, where she described to me more about the job, asked about my professional background, and basic behavioral questions, overall it went very well. Then, she contacted me a week later to come in and meet the director, who would be the hiring decision maker for the position. I came in a week later, and the interview went great, it actually seemed more like a personality test, and felt like we got along great and agreed on a lot of things. He also showed me some specific projects that they were working on, which I thought was a bit confidential/odd for an interview. I followed up with a Thank You email later that day (also had sent a Thank You to the HR coordinator before as well).

After a week, I checked in with the HR coordinator and HR manager to see where the hiring process stood, but they didn't reply. It's been three weeks since, and still haven't heard anything so I'm assuming I didn't get the job. It's a shame because my experience aligned perfectly with the job and I interacted well with the team, oh well.

It's too bad because up to that point I thought the hiring managers kept me well informed and were on top of their game, but not having the courtesy to reply with a polite rejection or status update, I think is rude. It was during the Thanksgiving holidays/December, but I think they could still extend a better courtesy of keeping their applicants informed.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Warner Bros. in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The best interview process with an orgaization I have ever gone through. Luckily, I had an employee referral which (I presume) landed me the interview in the first place.

    Everything began with a phone interview, proceeded to meet HR about a week later and on the same day interviewed with the managers. I was offered the job two days later.

    The process was fast and very enjoyable. The managers were fun and great to talk to, HR is probably one of the best in the business. I was in constant contact via email and phone. From beginning to end, process took about 2 weeks.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Warner Bros. in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with WB and I have to say it was an amazing experience! I can see how the political aspect of this organization can get in the way of an applicant's road to get hired - the process is usually long and your contacts don't always reply to your messages even though they may read/listen to them. I'll break down my experience for ya!

    Pros:
    - Beautiful campus and plenty of parking.
    - Great employee perks.
    - Pretty competitive salaries depending on your position.
    - Bright co workers and (depending on your department) capable and great supervisors.
    - Management is quite accessible and available.
    - Freedom in your work as long as you get what is requested done in time.
    - Temps almost always become full-time employees after 1 year.

    Cons:
    - It's hierarchical and internal promotions are almost nonexistent unless you know someone.
    - Hiring process can be a bit hard to maneuver, not always clear cut.
    - Getting hired can take two months of waiting and many interviews.
    - Being referred is probably the only way to get an interview with anyone.
    - Long hours for most departments.
    - It's a big corporate environment therefore change is very hard to come by.

    - Breakdown -
    Arrived early enough to clean myself up, tidy up paperwork etc. Receptionist was very helpful and sweet. Then went in to meet with HR which was a great experience - the company is generally very squared away with their processes, that is they are pretty efficient (if they want you that is). HR interview took about an hour.

    After the HR interview, went in and took a skills test - it's quite easy, if you use office you should be fine. They allot 2 hours for you and I got it done in about 40 min.

    Right after my skills test, went upstairs to the big boys and interviewed with the hiring managers for my position. The questions mainly went off the job description and after they were done with that they asked a little bit about my life and asked me to expand on my knowledge and skills for the job. Overall it went VERY well.

    The office was clean, posters everywhere, employees listening to music while working, spacious cubicles - overall a great environment to work in and thrive. Too bad I didn't get that call back - looks like they were searching for someone else, guess you can't have it all! =)

    Good luck to ya'll who are trying to get hired! It's a great place to get started in entertainment.
