    Talent Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Netflix.

    Interview

    Did some digging on the team prior to the scheduled phone call with the hiring manager and realized that I had zero chance of moving past that initial screening as the entire team was made up of white sorority girls and I did not fit that image at all.

    A month later I've learned that they hired some white kid. So basically if you aren't white you don't stand a chance. Their idea of making things "diverse" is throwing in a dude into the mix.

    Senior Researcher Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Netflix (Beverly Hills, CA).

    Interview

    I had about 5 phone screens, followed by a project and a full day of interviews with both researchers and their marketing team. Everyone I met from the research team was great but the marketing team was pretty scattered... most of them had no idea what my project was or that I had done it nor did they really ask me any poignant questions. The pluses of interviewing here were getting to visit the Netflix office (though honestly it is unimpressive compared to some other tech companies), some of the people who I met, and that it seems like they have great benefits/comp. The negatives were that some of the people I met on the marketing team weren't very impressive and that I literally had to meet with 10 people in 1 day, which was overwhelming. Ultimately they didn't choose me for the role and told me so in a brief voicemail, which seemed kind of unprofessional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Netflix in August 2017.

    Interview

    The onsite interview was 5.5 hours long. I met with 7 people. There was lots of product oriented questions. It was an exhausting day. You can expect coding questions, product-sense questions, A/B testing, experimental design and metric design. Read the culture deck! Read the culture deck! Read the culture deck!

    Talent Acquisition Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Netflix.

    Interview

    The hiring manager is a huge part of the interview, almost every step of the way. I had one phone interview, followed by a skype interview, followed by a coffee at the office, and then a day at the office where I had four interviews back-to-back, each thirty minutes. One of the interviews on that in-office day was via google hangout. The person who arranged my interview was on the team I was applying for. She was friendly, punctual, and accessible even when she was not in the office. They move fast and the interviews are demanding and intense, likely reflective of the culture, which is great. Use your interviews as a chance to interview the company and its people yourself, and remain honest with yourself at every part of the process. Prepare 3-4 good, well-researched, thoughtful questions for each of your interviewers and don't be afraid to ask them. They're looking for the best of the best because they can, so make sure to remind yourself whenever you are nervous that it is just as much your decision as to whether you want to work there as it is theirs.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Netflix (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    phone interview. i applied just for the heck of it, it was something I wanted to pursue but had minimal experience in. I was totally underqualified for this position but they offered me a phone interview anyways. so obviously i sounded like i had no skills that would qualify me for the job, and the interviewer was using so much jargon that it was almost condescending. it makes me question their resume screening process. kind of a waste of time for both parties imo.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Netflix.

    Interview

    Phone interviews with the outside recruiter and then the hiring manager offsite. Then interviewed with a few people onsite. The other recruiter was the one that apparently made the decisions. He was bland and dry, and not very engaging. I was pretty high energy, but tried be reserved due to his lack of energy or even professionalism.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Netflix (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and the recruiter emailed me within a week to set up a phone screen with him. After that came two more phone screens with two managers. I was emailed soon after to come in for an in-person. This was with four people, the three I had already spoken with over the phone and one more person from the team. I was called two days later and informed they would not be moving on with my candidacy and was provided very helpful feedback. Overall it just wasn't a good culture fit. The entire process was streamlined and very organized and I was made aware of what my standing was every step of the way.

    I got a phone call from the recruiter. I have studied the Netflix cultures slides before. The recruiter asks me about what i have done and some questions about what i learnt from Netflix culture from the slides. That was all. Next day, i received an email saying i am not a good fit for the position! Without any contact with the team or any technical discussion.
