    30 minute phone interview followed by an hour long interview in person later that week. The people were friendly and easy to speak with. All my questions were answered in detail. I heard back in less than a week, so even though I didn't get the position, the experience was generally positive.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Getty Images (Seattle, WA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Invited me in for an interview from 9:30AM-1PM. Parking was paid for and directions were clear. I met with 4 employees of Getty images ranging from the recruiter to the engineer to the hiring manager and another manager on another team. They basically blocked me out for one-on-one interviews with each person for about 30-45 minutes. The tough part about all this was that no food was provided throughout the interview. So you're basically starving while going through interviews with different people.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Getty Images (New York, NY).

    Interview

    From the recruiting side.. very team oriented which was great for both sides. Most of my feedback here is not about my own personal interviewing experience as it was far n the past and not as relevant. Recruiting process was very fair to the candidates but took very long and was taxing for the internal team covering the open position.

    Interview Questions

    • behaviorial questions, which are the best kind. Also asked to do sample presentation   Answer Question

    Support Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Getty Images (Seattle, WA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Standard process;
    -Initial screening with recruiter via phone
    -First interview with hiring manager via phone
    -Onsite interview with hiring manager and 3 of the hiring managers 'subordinates' who were on equal management level with the position they were hiring for.

    Very friendly and relaxed. They knew what they were looking for regarding cultural fit, skill sets, and generally the way you work, e.g. questions designed to determine if you reach out and network internally? Do you have a process or methodology to how you approach your job, specific aspects of the job/objectives? Can you proactively engage other areas of the business to cooperate, understand and get the job done?

    Interview Questions

    • They weren't standard questions, and weren't those obscure, difficult 'Google' type questions; somewhere in between. Mostly concentrated around cultural fit and general-specifics of how you work and how you achieve and accomplish objectives.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They have in-house compensation 'analysts' and offered above market rate and benefits. Not really any room to negotiate.

    Accounts Payable Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Getty Images in June 2016.

    Interview

    The worst interview experience I have ever experience. Not only did HR reach out to me to apply for this position, the phone interview went great and they wanted to schedule another interview because they felt that I was qualified for the job. I gave them a timeframe to schedule, and HR said that an email will be sent to confirm. I waited a few days and heard nothing. Emailed HR and heard absolutely nothing back after 2 weeks. If HR decided another candidate would be suitable for this position, they could have the decency to reply back and let me know instead of waisting my time. This made me lose all respect for this company and how unorganized their HR is.

    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    They reached out to me on linked in, I had a phone interview with the recruiter who then set up another phone interview with the person the job reported to. After that phone interview I went in person to meet with each of these people. A week later I had another phone interview with someone on the west coast team as well. Another week goes by and I get an email from them asking me to come in person the next day to interview with three more people. I am currently employed and found this ridiculous. I declined to go in as I could not miss another day of work.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic interview questions, tell me your background, why are you interested in this position, give some examples of how you helped clients in the past, what technical issues do you deal with etc.   Answer Question
