    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at New York Film Academy (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online on Indeed. They emailed me to schedule an appointment. I sat down in their small office with two of the managers that I would possibly be working for. The only asked me two questions. While I was talking, one of the managers started to check his email on his computer. They didn't seem interested in what I had to say at all and didn't ask me any questions. Very rude. Terrible experience and very reflective of their work culture. They did not even reply back to tell me I was no longer in consideration.

    Technical Advisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at New York Film Academy (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It went by smoothly. Interviewed by two managers and discussed thoroughly the job descriptions and how my experience and skills benefit the position. I was also given a tour of the facility and the neighboring facilities as well as shown an introduction video and ended with a skills test. I dont think I did too well as my mind wasn't as prepared and fresh to answer but I was eventually chosen, so perhaps it was more to gauge my current understanding.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New York Film Academy (Burbank, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Simple, but pretty drawn out. Pointless testing of knowledge for programs. Applied online, sat down 1-on-1, took a test, got an offer a few days later. Corporate process of hiring takes too long.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at New York Film Academy in October 2013.

    Interview

    Very fast interview process. The interviews were short and to the point. Scheduling the interviews was a little disorganized. Completing paperwork after beginning the job was also all over the place but managed to get my first check on time.

    Instructor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at New York Film Academy (Burbank, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty fun and welcoming, extending the prospective teacher the opportunity to teach a mock class and receive questions and feedback from chairs and CEO. However, even at this early stage of the process, I sensed some hostility between the faculty chairs and the executive members.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at New York Film Academy (New York, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    It involved a hands on test to see your ability to work with the cameras they use at the film academy and a written test as well. Personality and connections will help you get through the door as well. Be calm, knowledgable and likable and you will probably be a shoe in.
