    Photo Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Warner Bros. (Burbank, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I got the interview through a fellow college alumni who put in a recommendation. I came in and interviewed with the manager and executive assistant I would be working the most with. Both were kind and upfront about what the job pertained. They said that if offered the position I would come in on a two week trial. Overall they were easy to talk to and any nerves I felt were just general and did not pertain to to the difficulty of the interview. The process moved more like a conversation then an interrogation.
