    Interview

    3 rounds of interview with phone call, group interview and individual interview. Nothing too difficult in terms of questions. It is a customer service position so determinants are on personality and ability to interact with the public and international guests.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2019.

    Interview

    It was quick, relaxed, and very friendly from HR to the hiring team. I heard from HR first who told me they had several departments in mind for me and asked me to answer a few questions about availability and interest. Then I was contacted to schedule an in-person interview where I first spoke with HR about my interests again before meeting with the hiring team between 30 minutes to an hour. Everyone in HR was friendly, and the hiring team were fantastic. I heard back with an offer in less than a week.

    Interview Questions

    .NET Development Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Hollywood, CA) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Applied via online and had an initial interview with one of their developers. From what I understood from the interview. These guys are still very behind the times when it comes to tech.

    They're looking for someone who will continue working on a system that some age old developer worked on. Still using AngularJS and very old C# methodologies. Why would a manager need to be writing code and not architecture a new direction?

    No mention of Agile, SOA, Micro Services, dependency injection etc. The questions they asked me were very old school and old tech.

    When I asked if they were using Agile, they didn't know what it was. Asked about SOLID principles and it was alien to them.

    If you're looking for a gig that will see you until retirement, this is the place to go. Learning anything new is not a requirement for this company. Still stuck in 1995.

    Not sure what the CIO is doing here, but he/she needs to move forward with the times. Upper management seems very stagnant here.

    Never heard back.
