    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.

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Getty Images (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Since pair programming is important to Getty, my interview was a mock pairing session. I sat with two guys and a laptop, and was asked to solve a relatively simple coding question using TDD (test driven development). They had already set up the solution in Visual Studio and stubbed out the class we were going to write.

    I also had a quick chat about some trivia (aka what are SOLID principles, what does the keyword virtual mean, what's the difference between a span and div).

    Finally, I had a 10 min session with my potential manager, where he asked me the normal sort of questions like, why did I leave my previous company, what was the most challenging problem I had to solve, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Programming while someone watches you was a new experience for me.   Answer Question
