    Assistant Digital Marketing Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Paramount Pictures (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    HR called for a screening. She passed it along to the hiring manager who asked to bring me in for an interview. When I got to Paramount they made me park pretty far across the street from the lot. I wish they would have told me this (the email said I would be parking on the lot) because then I would have brought more comfortable shoes. I sat with HR for a few minutes to go over the position and she gave some some really helpful insight. Then I was golf carted to the other side of the lot to interview with the Sr. Mgr and Dir. The Dir was extremely rude. He did not even look at my resume, he scoffed at me when I walked in (I felt extremely judged by my appearance-almost harassingly), and he was constantly on his email and phone, extremely distracted. The Sr Mgr was a delight. He asked great questions, answered all mine with respect and honesty, and gave me excellent insight into the position (even though by then, I knew I did not want it-to be working under that Director).

    Once the interview was over, I had no idea where I was on the lot. No one came to pick me back up in a golf cart or communicated what was to happen afterwards. I walked all the way back to my car trying to find my way through the studio lot (GPS had me at 3/4 mile walk) in my nice pumps on an extremely hot summer day.

    Overall HR was very kind and helpful. They were responsive and followed up.

    Moral of the story: bring extra comfy shoes when you go to interview here!!

    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

    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
