    Netflix Analysis Roles Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was very excited to apply to Netflix, which is a company I greatly admire as a consumer and the roles defined seemed very well suited to my prior experience.

    I had an initial call with the hiring manager to whom my resume was sent by a friend who used to work at Netflix. I thought the call went quite well, he asked me very few questions about my experience but was more interested in questions that I had for him which he answered quite clearly and logically. Thereafter he said he would put me into the process for the role. This part of the experience was very positive and even if this person gave negative feedback on me because of something I said, I would think that was fair game. However I don’t think that was the case, I believe I was turned down by their HR / Talent acquisition team without any real basis and I felt the way that I was treated was unprofessional.

    Thereafter I received an email from a recruiter in their Talent Acquisition team in Singapore - we scheduled a call for the next day. I logged on to the dial in on time and after waiting 10 minutes, tried the recruiters landline to see what was up. She said “oh I was just about to call you”. She then called me back and started out by asking me a very basic question about my experience in management consulting (even though this ended more than 5 years ago).

    A bit of context here, I had already taken time off work for the first call with the hiring manager, and was therefore unable to do so for this subsequent call with the recruiter. Therefore I scheduled time after another meeting I had outside my current office, and had decided to take the call from a Starbucks that is very centrally located.

    When I set about answering her question, the network on my cellphone suddenly started acting up in a big way and the call dropped 6 times while I was responding. She called me back several times but we kept having the same issue. After this, she didn’t call back and so I attempted to call her on her landline, but got no answer. A few seconds after this I received an email from her saying it was great chatting with me and have a good week. I responded by apologising about the network issues and asking if we could reschedule our call since we didn’t get a chance to speak properly. I received no response to this message.

    A week later, she emailed me again saying she enjoyed speaking with me, and unfortunately my background is not a fit though they will keep my resume on file in case there are suitable roles going forward.

    Aside from being disappointed at being rejected, I am left feeling that Netflix’s talk about their culture is lip service - they claim to be humble (which the hiring manager was), but the HR persons behaviour was arrogant - from joining the call late, to the content of her email and lack of response to my request for a reschedule, and later rejecting my application. Netflix claims to be a company that prides itself on making “informed” decisions - though this clearly does not apply to the talent acquisition team.
