    Interview done in group setting. Very basic questions. Can answer at the same time and then everyone looks and says the other can go first.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CBS in January 2018.

    Interview

    Started out with a phone interview. Got a call back and went in and met with the specific department. Relatively straight forward interview. Tend to hire people they know from within though. Their HR department is fantastic. Took their time to interview me. Give you an actual shot rather than giving you a 5 minute brush off phone call where you feel rushed. Something I've experienced with other studios.
