    Senior Manager, Operations Center Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Monica, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hulu (Santa Monica, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Small things make a huge impression. Having my name on the board welcoming me to the interview was one of those small things. Having multiple waters and snacks on the table also was helpful in easing in to the interview process. I felt wanted as opposed to just another candidate.

    The interview process gave great insight in to some of the challenges the team was facing and I was more than prepared for the interview simply from previous experience. The questions were about creating and following processes from a management standpoint but also as an individual contributor and for someone who hadn't done both the questions would have revealed shortcomings rather quickly.

    I had 3 phone screenings and then a panel interview onsite. The interview process was scheduled for an entire day and required a day off from my previous job. The interviews took all of that time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hulu.

    Interview

    Firstly did an assessment, last for 6 hours. My program worked but the performance was not too good. Still I got an interview call. Second round interview - I solved the question but did not get the passion out of interviewer. I think I was asking the wrong question so the communication was not to good.

    Interview Questions

    • String manipulation related question - not too difficult but the follow up was harder. I was asked about the situation where strings get really long.   Answer Question

    Human Resources Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hulu (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter and then hiring manager. In person interview for four hours with different HR professionals, each 30min. Very unproductive way to get to know someone. It felt like speed dating. They asked the same question over and over. No excitement for me as a candidate. The VP was focused on weaknesses and trying to find the negative in every situation. They also had a “test” type question you needed to prepare and present to the VP and hiring manager. Overall it a not a good experience as a candidate, especially after they recruited me. I had no desire to work there after leaving the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Can’t recall the exact question but it was focused on receiving negative feedback.   Answer Question

    Data Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hulu (Santa Monica, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was like any other interview at a tech company. Super friendly call from HR, then a phone screening with a hiring manager. A week later they flew me out to Santa Monica for an onsite interview, around 8 interviews back to back. Questions were pretty behavioral, mainly talked about experience and why you fit in at Hulu. Everyone I met was friendly, but everyone was a caucasian employee, all from the same clique and all kind of look like your typical West LA bro.

    Granted, the interview was friendly. Very simple questions you would NEVER use on the job so brush up on your fundamentals. The worst thing is after spending all this time to interview, they never called to follow up and tell me I didn't get the position, even after a follow up email. Definitely not respectful of your time, especially when you need to take a day off from your regular day job.
