    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Focus Features (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First Interview is general about past experience and why Focus. Second Interview is more detailed in regards to your experience and opinion on films. Be prepared to know significant knowledge about films, directors, writers etc. It is essential to sound interested in the actual industry and not just the job at hand. They also have you do sample script coverage after your second interview.

    Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Focus Features (New York, NY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Quite informal. General questions and goals in mind. Only done by phone, although I had a network connection from my previous intern position. My interviewer, who was to be my supervisor, was very kind and straight forward. No trick questions. I actually didn't even have time to prepare for the interview. It almost seemed like a check just to see if I was normal and decent. The referral from my present job at the time probably helped in reassuring her I was qualified.

    Publicity Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Focus Features (Burbank, CA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Very prompt communication, the interview in person two days later consisted of the Intern Coordinator explaining the program to me and asking very few questions about my background, interests, or experience. It was a very summary interview and I left confused about whether or not they had been interested in me, but they contacted me a week later and offered me the position.

    Production Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Focus Features (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Two weeks after I applied online, I was called to set up a phone interview date. The phone interview lasted about ten minutes and it was very general. Then I got a second phone interview. This one was a bit more challenging and asked deeper questions. After about 3 weeks, I got a phone call that said I had gotten the position.
