    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lucasfilm (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Basic question describing what you've done, and catching keywords. Interviewer was not particularly interested in her job and or too distracted with something that was going on in the background. 10 mins into the process she placed me on hold, then requested for a reschedule to continue the process next day due to some urgent matter came up. However she did not actually followed up during the designated time. She then apologized over email and offered another time for the week after dropping a note 30 mins after the fact. I've replied to confirm the 3rd attempt, but did not hear back from her again. Didn't think an interview process would end up like a stood up date on okqupid. All dressed up, posies in my hand, but end up dining alone.

    VR Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lucasfilm (San Francisco, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I had an incredibly rude interviewing experience. It was probably one of the worst interviews I've ever had despite a glowing employee referral. A couple of the employees seemed to have huge egos, were arrogant, and were prima donnas.

    Overall the interview was straightforward. They started off with a phone screen, they moved on to a timed coding test, then an onsite interview. The interview was typical white boarding questions and they had one person from product and one designer to round it out a bit.

    Be prepared for lots of crunch if you join Lucasfilm. Their *required* core hours currently are 9 am to 7pm Monday through Friday so that is already a 45 hour work week assuming a 1 hour lunch. Many of their employees talked about staying later 8pm - 9pm. Be prepared for long grueling hours. The benefit though is you get to work on intellectual properties such as Star Wars!

    Interview

    After two phone interviews, I was brought in for a 4 hour multiple person interview where I was quizzed and asked plenty of detailed questions. I was taken around to all the cool rooms and made to believe I would be getting the position. I learned two days later I didn't get the position.

    Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two phone interviews. The second was the longest and was done with my hiring manager. The first was just a basic phone screen and only lasted about ten minutes. After the second phone screen, I was invited in for an in person interview. It was a relatively short interview but done with a panel. There was a little pressure doing a group interview but since everyone was pretty friendly, it wasn't that bad.

    Interview Questions

    • No one question stands out. The most concerning question was around the amount of support that is needed for artists. That scared me more than anything.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lucasfilm in August 2013.

    Interview

    Long process and often left in the dark regarding where you stand in the process. When finally called back for an in person interview, everyone was very friendly during my visit. Questions weren't difficult, just the normal situational admin questions.

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lucasfilm (San Rafael, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Got a call from hiring manager after applying online, asked me what are my future plans, and whether I can join them later at the end of the month. After a minute into the conversation asked me what country I belonged to as a citizen. A brief overview of my skills in python and mel. After knowing I didn't have a US visa, got denies because the company does not offer sponsorships to junior positions. And this was in the 2nd week of the month, I obviously couldn't get a work permit for the end of the month.

    Would have been really happy if I got sponsored as I was a recent grad.
