    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Weta Digital in December 2019.

    Interview

    It was casual, they mostly explained to me what was expected in my role, asked me about my background. I feel like it was mostly to gauge my personality than anything else.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Weta Digital (Wellington, Wellington (New Zealand)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    The process took around 3 months from my initial application and consisted of two interviews. The first interview was full of pretty generic interview questions like "why do you want to work here?", "Why do you think you will be a good fit for the position" etc.
    The second interview was called a technical interview, though it wasn't all too technical and didn't require problem solving. They just asked about past projects.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Weta Digital (Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Incredibly laggy connection with skype so we had to resort to call on mobile. Even then it was choppy and I could hardly hear their questions, while they could hardly hear my answers.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Weta Digital in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and around three days later I got an email for first (screening) interview. The interview was with the management, all nice and friendly mostly talking about my work history.

    The next round includes a technical interview with the lead team. There were questions about my work experience and projects, then proceeded to C++ and Python questions, some others about data structures and Threading. I didn't answer all of them to their satisfaction obviously, so I got just one day after this interview an email with the message that „my Skillset was not good enough…“. However, the team was nice enough to tell me a reason why they didn't take my application. At the end I had absolute positive experience with them even failed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Weta Digital (Wellington, Wellington (New Zealand)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Wouldn't work there and wouldn't recommend either

    They did not have the basic courtesy to reply back whether they're taking my application further or not (no, it's not optional). Tells a lot about company culture

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Weta Digital in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was hunted down at first, had a short email introduction and questionnaire.
    Then a Skype interview where they pulled out all the stops and carrots.
    Then I heard nothing for many months even after emailing to try and find out why everything stalled. Then out of the blue got an email asking if I was still interested and I accepted.
    . After the interview, I had to wait more than a week for my approval.
