    I worked at IMDb full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It’s a huge website in size and traffic, so there are opportunities in the scale

    Cons

    so much promise trapped in a 1990’s page layout unable to break free due to low-level dependences they’re terrified to touch and Col’s intransigence to change

    The designers think they’re great but would be hamburger if they worked on sites that didn’t have a data monopoly and required a real competitive interface

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to tell Col he’s a drag on innovation because the product team knows they’re going to get second—guessed about everything, even when they have data to back up their plans

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IMDb (Seattle, WA (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    I went through a campus recruitment event, so there were only two rounds involved: 1) a 30-min technical phone screen and 2) a 4-round onsite interview.

    I was given an easy-level question during phone screen by the interviewer who was very nice and willing to communicate, so onsite was expected.

    The onsite interview was well structured: 3 rounds technical interviews with some behavior questions, and 1 round pure behavior interview. I think the questions were mid-level. Most interviewers were very helpful in term of guiding me to the right direction.

    I was quite impressed by this experience considering IMDb is actually part of Amazon, and I have read so many negative reviews about Amazon's interviews. The technical recruiter worked very hard to schedule interviews with a time constrain, and made sure we were all prepared for our onsites by setting up multiple call sessions. The only thing I would complain is morning session interviews were quite early, so really hard for people who have a long commute. Overall, I think IMDb is a great team within Amazon.
