    Senior Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Mill in September 2017.

    Interview

    I have been contacted by a recruiter. The interview was about my about my background and the details of the position. It was a smooth nice interview with very nice research people and the position was pretty interesting. Working with cool artists, working in NY, etc, I was very motivated. I have received a mail afterwards to have an interview with the managers.

    Then the next interview has never happened. Either managers were away, did not have time etc. After a month of excuses I have decided to give up because another position was waiting an answer. I think this was not professional at all.

    • It was a pleasant interview with cool scientists on my background and their future plans with the position.   Answer Question

    Motion Designer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Savannah, GA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at The Mill (Savannah, GA (US)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Came to my school and interviewed myself and several others initially, and then committed to a follow-up interview over Skype several weeks later. I spoke to their Talent Manager, two designer/animators, and later on, one of their directors. The first half was really more of a review of skills and assessment of my personality and interest in their company, while the second interview process was much more personal.

    They were all very friendly, honest, and direct.

    Interview Questions

    • I would say that their questions were pretty standard until the second interview. At that point, the questions were really more on a personal level -- presumably to gauge my compatibility and understanding of the roles they were trying to fill at that time.   Answer Question
