I have been working at Netflix full-time
Netflix is a progressive company on the frontier of storytelling
The production schedule is often very fast-paced with extremely tight turnarounds
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Netflix (Los Angeles, CA).
Three stages to the interview process:
1 x recruiter screen call - 30 mins
1 x video interview call - 30 mins
6 x video interviews in succession with different team and department members, including another recruiter - 30 mins each with a break after the 4th.
Some interviewers were better than others. One interviewer said that anyone who said anything bad about Netflix on Glassdoor was a problem themselves, which didn't seem realistic or reasonable. I also felt that the role seemed to contradict the culture memo as they mentioned it was very process-driven which kind of conflicted with the people over process part of the culture memo. If it takes 8 different people to make a decision on a hire, I'm not sure how "stunning" a place it can be. I came out of it feeling jaded and having read the recent article about 3 execs getting fired for complaining on Slack about senior managers, I feel it may be for the best that I don't work there.
