    Motion Graphics Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Monica, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at RPA (Santa Monica, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was brought into conference room with two persons. I was told it was going to be a casual interview, which is fine. After briefly talking about some of my work and experience, most of the interview became about selling the company, as though I already had the job. Every time I would try to bring the conversation back to the work itself, or my work, or learn more about the workflow, etc, it wouldn't take long before the conversation would just end up back to talking about the company. It was a little awkward and confusing throughout. One of the interviewers would not look at me while they or I spoke, instead looked at me out of the corner of their eye. I tried many times to include them in the conversation where they would look at me briefly then turn away and look at me from the side again. It took a few days for the recruiting firm to even hear back from the position they were needing to fill immediately, and was advised I was considered 'too quiet.' No one that knows me under any capacity would consider those words to describe me, with the exception of when I find a rhythm in my work, but not as a personal attribute.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RPA (Santa Monica, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Took about 15 minutes. Standard questions. Friendly process. Nothing tricky. Was not a barrage of questions just a friendly conversation about my work, goals, past, their company and what they are about, what I like about them. As with any good interview it is not one sided, you are both interviewing each other to make sure it is a fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at RPA (Santa Monica, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very easy, since it is a job that doesn't require agency experience they were primarily looking for someone who was enthusiastic and very proactive. I interviewed with 3 women from my department and my main concern was how I would be able to move up in the company. I was very pleased to hear that all women were very enthusiastic and had been at RPA for a long time.
