    I worked at Sundance Institute as a contractor


    Training is complete and efficient. You are encouraged to get your hands into new projects and assignments. Everyone is extremely friendly and very open to helping/teaching where they can. Office culture is friendly and cohesive. Dog friendly office!! Office is 50ft from a ski lift, so no complaints there.


    Contract job. Downfall of being a nonprofit, most of the festival staff are contract. Tech and internet service in the office should be upgraded.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sundance Institute in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with several different departments. Many seemed weary of my skills and asked unusual questions. Seems as though the staff had little knowledge of the platforms they were supporting.

    I also interviewed via phone with the director, who seemed friendly. I think he had some more important things to do, because he didn't seem very talkative. He also asked questions he didn't seem to keep track of after he asked them. Very unusual.

    Interview Questions
    • There were many questions about being able to work independently, as well as in a team. Also, I needed to be flexible to rapidly changing priorities.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They would not budge on the salary, which was pretty low to start. I don't know how they expect to get anyone but noobs in there with that kind of money.
