    Talent Acquisition Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Netflix.

    Interview

    The hiring manager is a huge part of the interview, almost every step of the way. I had one phone interview, followed by a skype interview, followed by a coffee at the office, and then a day at the office where I had four interviews back-to-back, each thirty minutes. One of the interviews on that in-office day was via google hangout. The person who arranged my interview was on the team I was applying for. She was friendly, punctual, and accessible even when she was not in the office. They move fast and the interviews are demanding and intense, likely reflective of the culture, which is great. Use your interviews as a chance to interview the company and its people yourself, and remain honest with yourself at every part of the process. Prepare 3-4 good, well-researched, thoughtful questions for each of your interviewers and don't be afraid to ask them. They're looking for the best of the best because they can, so make sure to remind yourself whenever you are nervous that it is just as much your decision as to whether you want to work there as it is theirs.

In this competitive and chaotic market, it often seems like you either have a seat at the table or are part of the menu.
