    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency in March 2017.

    Interview

    I waited almost an hour. HR was aggressive and condescending. Minimal eye contact, no interest, distracted, typing on keyboard. I thought it was a prank.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was a pleasant phone call with HR. The phone call lasted about 10 minutes. It was quick and to the point. They briefly explained the position to me and then proceeded to ask me about the items on my resume. At the end of the interview the person at HR said that she would pass my resume on to the next department but she also expressed that she thought that I was too senior for the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online- submitted essay, cover letter, and resume. A couple weeks later I was called to do a Skype interview with a recruiter where she asked a lot of basic questions about my experience and knowledge of my department. Two weeks later, I did an in-person interview with some executives in my department of interest. In the second interview, I learned a lot about the company, and the department I would be working in. A couples days later, I received a call from the HR Recruiter's assistant that they decided to go with another candidate. Throughout the process, I interacted more with assistants than the interviewers themselves. They scheduled the interview times, and I had a portfolio that I was asked to submit, but it was never sent to the executive that interviewed me.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The whole process took about 2 weeks. I was referred by an employee and was brought in for an informational interview with someone in HR. They told me that if a spot opened up I would considered for the position and brought in to interview if they thought I was appropriate for the position. A few days later I got called for an interview for an open spot. I interviewed with two people who were in charge of Facilities and Operations. They were very very nice and answered all of my questions and were really passionate about the company they were working for. I got a call a day later saying I got the job.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was brought in with an Employee Referal and my first interview was with HR. A month later I was contacted to come in for a second interview with the Hiring Manger of the department I'd be working in. The Hiring Manger could not make the interview and so I interviewed with two other Agents that I would be working with. The questions were pretty straight to the point and everyone was very nice. The entire process was very slow but HR was very responsive to follow up emails.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    After a brief phone interview, I went into the office where I interviewed with about 5 different people who rotated in and out of the room. The interview was very casual and lax. It focused very much on my personal and educational background and how it shaped my "path". Tech startup feel, despite being a huge company.

    Agent Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency.

    Interview

    The interview process was two steps, first with the head of HR and then with the agent you are applying to work with. The questions and interview process is actually pretty straightforward. There aren't any tough questions, just assessing your background and reasons for coming to the agency. The easiest way to get an interview is through a referral from someone inside the company. If you get the job, they usually want you to start immediately so it helps having already moved to LA if you're applying to the headquarters.
