    Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DreamWorks Pictures.

    Interview

    The HR interviewer asked the most ridiculous by the book questions, I felt like I was taking a multiple choice test in high school. Did not consider the human being sitting in front of her. Negative experience that completely turned me off to this company. I cannot believe that in 2014 they would allow these sorts of hiring practices.

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DreamWorks Pictures (Glendale, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was excited about the phone screen, I had several other in-person interviews that went well and even two offers already, but this was Dreamworks, and I couldn't wait to hear what questions they would ask. The recruiter screen went well, of course.
    The interviewer asked what tools I would use for capacity planning, and what I would use to evaluate resources for adding thousands of users to a webapp.
    I've done both of these things countless times, so I listed several tools, and went in depth into how I would use them and gave examples of successful projects from my past. He seemed exasperated as he asked me "any *other* tools you can think of?" several times. When I asked which tool he was looking for, he ended the interview abruptly, rudly, and without saying goodby as he hung up the phone.
     I've seen a lot of different interview styles, and I don't believe the "guess our toolset" method is a useful way to evaluate qualified candidates. I felt like I caught someone on a VERY bad day and they were determined to not hire me under any circumstances.
