    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Billabong in December 2014.

    The overall interview was amazing! The manager was very personable but professional. The interview questions were the standard approach but also peppered in a few about the kind of employee you might possibly be.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Billabong.

    Interview

    It was very casual,-not in an unprofessional way, but in a comfortable manner. I felt like I was really being listened to. I showed my portfolio of what I was capable of, even though it didn't really matter for interning. The Product Developer who interviewed me was extremely kind and was definitely a huge supporter of the company, which was a really good sign.

    It was a job fair type thing, we sat in a group interview everyone got their turns to speak and stand out if they wanted to which is good because some places only listen to the first person that talked. Everyone got a call back that night that got the job and it was a quick process to get paperwork done and have everyone come in for paperwork and everything.
