    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was connected by the Paramount campus recruiter. She sent my resume to the international publicity department. I worked with the recruiter to establish a day and time for the interview. I was then given a date. I was interviewed by three people in a conference room but it was very relaxed.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I was referred to one of the assistants who passed my resume along to HR. The questions were relatively straightforward - trying to figure out if I was a good fit for the team. Interviewed again with the assistants hiring.

    Director Music Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The recruitment team was extremely thorough and professional. The interview lasted an hour and they were very blunt with their questions and opinions but respectful too. Then I met with the head of Music - who more casual in his tone and fun. It seemed as though he was trying to get more of a personality match rather than a skills match.

    Interview Questions

    • The recruiters asked me out of the box questions like what I was like in high school. I've never been asked that before but they wanted to see if I was well rounded, a leader, etc.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Audition - It was a 3 ½ hours audition. I entered the parking garage and found that there were lots of spaces. I had imagined seeing a long line that’s two or three blocks long. But to my pleasant surprise, there was NO ONE waiting at the entrance. I had to question the staff if I was already too late. The staff told me that it is probably because it’s the second of the two day audition, and it’s already 2 PM in the afternoon. It actually only took 15 minutes that day and I got the job.

    Coordinator, Product Fulfillment Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hollywood, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Hollywood, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    This was the most positive interview experience of my career. The Paramount Pictures team I was in contact with throughout the process was extremely professional and very kind. I applied online directly through the Paramount Pictures careers site. About 3 weeks later, I was initially contacted by an HR recruiter via email to set up a phone interview the following week. The phone interview was with the same HR representative and was mostly about my general background and soft skills that might make me a good fit for the job and company/dept. culture. She did give me some information about the department and supervisors I would be interviewing with in-person. I REALLY appreciated that. You don't always get to know, so it was a plus. I then had an in-person interview on the Paramount lot a few days later that same week with my two would-be immediate supervisors. The following week I had one last interview with the VP of the department. I received an offer later that same day.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about what you were doing at your last job?
      Beyond that, it wasn't so much questions as it was a discussion and relation of my experience and skills in consideration to the job I was applying for. It wasn't an intense interrogation style interview. It was very calm and fair and informational on their part.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online and forgot about it, as I didn't hear back till about a month later. The interviewee was intimidating, but nice. HR interviews you over the phone first and then takes you to the hiring manager. Ask HR as much as possible before you go to the hiring manager. HR is your "friend"..in that moment

    I have met manager and director. The process is not very hard. introduce yourself, go through your resume, and more detail about your projects in class. Because I have no relevant working experience and this was my first interview....a little nervous , and failed. they are very nice and talk more about the daily duty. they require ERP skills, etc

    Interview

    Applied online through my university career site. An assistant to a more senior manager gave me a call and it was just a screening interview. Then she gave me the job. I'm pretty sure she was just looking to see if I was competent or not.
