    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pixar Animation Studios (United States)

    Interview

    First is a phone screening with the recruiter who is very nice. Basic questions like tell me about your current/most recent project, what was the size/organizational structure of your team, Pixar's production pipeline can get really hectic sometimes and would you be okay handling that. Super conversational. Asked about salary expectations right off the bat. Then room for you to ask questions.

    If you get to the next round there's a two hour interview with people in the department and department manager. I felt most of them asked similar questions, and like the phone screening everything was very conversational and everyone very friendly. Most questions are situational, so easy to prepare answers for. No technical questions about software or workflows.

    After that if you get an offer they'll do one more call with you to go over the package, talk salary again, and you get a link to their benefits page which is really handy to look through on your own.
    Interview

    Tell us about a time/project where there were multiple moving parts and how did you manage all of it? Tell us about a recent challenge and how did you overcome it? Tell us about a time you failed, a time where you took a chance, where you accepted critique, where you made a meaningful contribution to your team? What kind of teams have you worked with, what kinds of teams do you work best with? What's your learning style? How did you get into editing?
