This is a great place to work. Because most of the employees are temporary for the Sundance Film Festival, everyone is basically new and trying to get to know other people. Team-building activities are weekly and are a great way to get to know your co-workers. It's also great to be working for such a great cause.
Sometimes the challenges come in the same way the benefits do...It's difficult working with so many people who are all trying to figure everything out at the same time. It's also located in Park City, which is not a very convenient place to get to.
Advice to Management
Consider having a Festival office in Salt Lake. It is much easier to find temporary housing and transportation than in Park City.

I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks – interviewed at Sundance Institute.
I had two rounds of interviews for a festival coordinator position (a four month contract position) at Sundance this year.
They contacted me via email to schedule both interviews. The second interview was on Skype or Google Hangout if you couldn't come in to the office in person.
I had no problems with the interview process overall, the interviewer was friendly, and I was excited about the possibility to work with them.
What I was not thrilled about was after two interviews (one in person!), basically hearing radio silence about the results of said interview. I contacted them to follow up and all I received in return was a form email saying I didn't get the job. Didn't even come from the interviewer personally, just generated through their system.
Not hearing back from job interviews is a pet peeve of mine anyway. I always try to follow up and I think it's the least a company can do is let you know the results.
- It's not really difficult, but they asked a lot of questions about what management style and company culture you're comfortable with, so have specific answers for those types of questions. Answer Question
