    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IMAX (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Went into the office, and they asked me to walk through my resume. After that, they discussed how much they liked working at IMAX and how great of a company it is. I would recommend preparing at least 3 questions to fill up time at the end. They were super nice and chill.

    Vice President - Investor Relations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at IMAX (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I had a 20 minute screening interview with a Director in Human Resources. The Director showed little understanding of what the functional aspects of the job were and what would qualify someone for the position or make them good at it. The person was reading questions off a list. They were clearly just looking for someone who had done the exact same job at a competitor (no sense for functional job requirements, only job description).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IMAX (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I was referred by the VP in the department for an entry level interview. I skipped the HR interview and went straight to the interview with 2VPs and my future mentor. I had individual interview with all 3 of them. Each of them spent about half an hour. It's some general questions such as your past experience, why IMAX, what makes you think you are a good fit. etc. They spent quite a good time explaining the duties of the position. It definitely seems like a wonderful company to work with tho.

    Interview Questions

    • Not much hard questions. The most unexpected thing was they told me if they dont have to interview other people they would hire me right away, but ended up didn't give me an offer after a month's wait.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at IMAX.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview, then there was an in-person interview during the following days. Everything was conducted by the HR intern at the moment. The phone interview was with solely the HR intern, while the in-person interview was with both the HR intern and the department manager. Everything was very prompt - followup was given almost immediately after every stage.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IMAX (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Had 2 phone interviews and 3 face to face interviews along with a personality test and a technical assessment. Took over a month for this process.
    Also changed the job along the way and created two different roles. Which led to more confusion in the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    • There were many questions in all of the interviews, however, after such a long process, they did not even get back to me to tell me that I did not get the job. It was very unprofessional considering how much time I put into these interviews and also sent a follow up email, with no reply.
      Such a large company and such a negative experience with the whole interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Was contact several time regarding phone interviews.
    Went through multiple interviews with several people and departments, asking very similar questions.

    They were unable to confirm compensation rate.

    Despite having advertised the position as a 12 month contract, it was indicated in the third interview that it was 3 month contract.
    They had an unrealistic time frame for scheduling appointments
