    This was such a fun place to work. A lot of young staff from all over the country.


    There was never a clear set of deadlines, although I think that was a failure on my managers part, and not the company as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to thank the temp staff during the festival. They are the ones doing the dirty work so you can focus on your tasks and the festival as a whole! Otherwise, keep up the great work!

    Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Sundance Institute (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2014.


    I believe my interview was a bit unorthodox. I had an informal, hourlong "chat" that wasn't anything near an official interview with the department director. A month later, I had four, 1/2 hour long informational interviews with different departmental staff. The job description was not presented until another 7 weeks after that, along with a job offer.
