    Digital Asset Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Perkins Eastman (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Skype Interview and In-Person interview with skills test.

    Skype interview was great. Typical first interview. Questions about my experience, skills, goals, etc. 1 hour total with both the head of the photography department and HR department.

    In-Person interview was a 4 hour process. Started with a meeting with the photography department, then brought in the head of HR. Less formal interview with questions more based on personality. Then, I had a skills test with two 30 minute shoots and a test of photoshop skills.

    The position was originally a Digital Asset based position but once I was there for the in person interview, it was clear they wanted to hire an experienced architectural photographer over an experienced digital asset manager.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Perkins Eastman.

    Interview

    The space in the company isn't attractive or place where advanced people from this field would love to work. It is boring with high uncomfortable chairs. I waited for the interview more than 20 min. I was told it would be two interviewer, there was just one. The interview was normal. No tricky questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Perkins Eastman in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted after career fair at university to come in for an interview. The person(s) I was scheduled to interview with was a no show. I ended up interviewing with a very polite and genuinely caring studio director. Unfortunately he wasn't very prepared and didn't know who I was or what I was interviewing for. This caught me off guard and can't help but think my chances of having a successful interview were doomed. End of story, I sadly did not receive an invite back for second interview nor any follow up contact.

    Systems Analyst - Finance Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Perkins Eastman (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process lasted about 3 months from the phone interview, to the in person and the second round. At first it went pretty well, the issue is that other people who have no idea what the role entails get involved in the interview process and it throws you off your mojo. We are professionals, please review candidates resumes before meeting them.

    3 months is way too long!
