    Adult Swim Programming Development Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Denton, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is in three parts. The first is kind of like a one-way Skype interview? A question pops up on screen, you get 2 tries, 30 seconds to think of an answer, and 3 minutes to record an answer. The second is an actual Skype interview with your hiring manager and a few members of the department you will be working in. The third is an interview with Keith Crofford, the executive VP of Adult Swim.

    Account Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I met with a recruiter after applying online, and then he introduced me to a team that I had a second interview with. After reaching out after three weeks to both the team and the recruiter, the recruiter informed me they went with another candidate. However, he told me another team was hiring so I went for another interview with the second team. After reaching out multiple times, I have not heard anything from Turner, good or bad, after three months. The process was frustrating.

    Web Developer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I connected with the intern on LinkedIn who worked here for Fall 2016, who also happens to go to the same school as I do. I was given the hiring manager's email address, where I had a phone interview after discussing my qualifications and details of the internship. Then, we had an on-site interview with her and the technical manager. They seem particularly impressed by my skills considering it perfectly matched the job description, as well as using "up-to-date" web technologies, e.g., AngularJS, Node.js, SASS, Git, NPM, Bower, Gulp, and etc.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    1. Was contacted by HR and they gathered basic info about me.
        Why are you looking for a new position?
        What is your desired salary level?
        etc...
    2. A software development manager (my future boss) sent me a object oriented coding challenge that I could do in any language and I had to solve in an hour.
    3. I was brought on-site and has to answer the following:
        - Design a relational database model
        - Design a front-end model for a playlist of songs
        - Complete an algorithmic challenge in any language
        - answer a handful of various miscellaneous questions

       - Everyone was very nice, helpful, and relaxed during the interview and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Finally my future boss took me on a tour of the CNN Center, including inside a control room and on the research floor.

    Interview Questions

    • On-site questions:

      Relational Database: How would you design a relational database model given blah, blah, blah. I sketched out on the whiteboard some tables with many-to-many/one-to-many relationships & sample data, wrote queries to pull certain data, and then answered some database questions such as what is an index? what would you want one? what is a downside to creating an index?

      Design a front-end using html, css, and JavaScript/jQuery. Design a music player. I made JavaScript/json objects of a playlist and of a complete library of songs. I wrote-out some html/css of how the song/artist/album/etc info would appear to the user, made a play button with javascript behind it, etc.

      Algorithmic question to be solved in any language: Write code to determine if a string is a palindrome. Once finished, they said, ok, now write it recursively and the function can only take in one parameter.

      They gave me some JavaScript code followed by an ajax call with an onSuccess, followed by more code and asked in what order console.log statements would output.

      They gave me some JavaScript code that contained closures/scope/hoisting and console.log statements at various points in the code and asked what the output would be at those points.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through Time Warner Careers page.
    Received email to take a HireVue Video Interview and Media Math Assessment

    The recruiter was professional and helpful. The technology of video interviews can be a little wonky and is much more uncomfortable to me than a traditional in person interview.

    Accounting & Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Turner Broadcasting (Atlanta, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's job board, and quickly got an on-campus interview. The interviewers were easy to talk to but they had a list of questions they were required to ask which made it difficult to maintain an organic conversation at times. I was asked about 5 technical questions. Then I was invited to an office visit with about 30 other students. We got to mix with many employees at Turner and talk to them about their experiences which was great. The next day involved a panel talking about the Accounting and Finance programs at Turner and then 3 back to back interviews. It was a difficult interview for me but everyone at the company was very approachable.
