    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Framestore in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was offered a phone interview just a few days after I applied for the job. The overall interview was pretty average, the woman I talked to was very easy going. Just make sure that you're already living in the city that you're applying for. The interview was going really well until I mentioned it might take a week or so before I start. I think that's what lost me the job.

    Very typical, very simple. Couple video phone interviews and that was it. If you've been hired on at any other film studio you're very used to this type of hiring. If you're local they simply have you come into the studio.

    Compositor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Framestore (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Video interview, pretty standard. Everything was pretty laid back, they just asked questions about my previous experiences. I was approached by the recruiter which is how I got the lead. The time from the first email, to interview, to job acceptance was about 2 weeks total as an ongoing conversation.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions like what are my hobbies, past experiences with compositing, etc. They do a couple little "test questions" in my opinion to see if you really know what you are talking about (as any smart employer should).   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Framestore in March 2014.

    Interview

    Very quick process, which was nice. The employees and interviewers were open and enthusiastic, and the working environment gave an overall positive impression. Interviewed with many different people over the course of a few days, felt great about my potential fit for the job, and received a lot of positive feedback. However, once the question of potential compensation was brought up, the tone changed and the interviewers stressed "entry level" despite the position being advertised as at least a tier above that with the myriad responsibilities that entailed. Low entry level pay for the amount of gruelling hours required weekly, minimal 30 minute break during the working day, along with complicated and essential responsibilities doesn't add up. Very disappointing.
