    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.

    Director Music Interview

    Positive Experience
    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

    Lead Actor Interview

    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.

    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

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward. I interviewed with HR on the phone first. Afterwards i came on lot on two separate occasions to interview with HR and the individual members of the department in which I was looking to get hired. Most of the questions were philosophical or personality/getting to know you kinds of questions, rather than tests of my abilities.
