    Management can be hypocritical in their direction. High turnover due to employees unhappy with management.

    Advice to Management

    Need to rework how you treat employees that need help.

    FX Artist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at ScanlineVFX (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Listened to owner talk about how great the company was, watched Scanline reel. They asked very little about my experience or skills, and showed me their cafeteria that had to be called the "nightclub" - it looked like an '80's gay bar set for an after school special.
    Lots of smiling and nodding and one word approval noises "wow!", "amazing!" etc really seemed to help.
     Brief mention of no OT until after 45 hours a week because they're pretending to be a high tech professional company and so exempt from BC labour law. Every other studio in town has been busted for this, but I guess nobody told Scanline.
