    Because Netflix need some help with their recommendation engine.
    It’s a total shit. If I happen to watch a shitty movie, it keeps recommending more shitty movies.

      How is the recommendation engine to be blamed here? Stop watching shitty movies

      Also, i think you can rate the movies. So rate them poorly and you can also remove it from watch list. Don't blame the recommendation system for this.

    "I interacted with some people who have been working at Netflix for the past few years and am drawn towards the benefits they mentioned having... A great WLB / community give back initiative / spirit of helping everyone grow / team culture." Whatever is important to you that is drawing you to the company. Then explain why that is important to you.
    Or choose a corporate initiative and mention how that aligns with your work ethics - customer focus / leader in market etc.

    Thank you all for answers, I went through the culture deck and values, which I liked there was honesty over kindness of giving constructive feedback to there fellow employees. And other thing I liked is sharing knowledge openly which I like most.

    We are a transparent company, so the truth. Explain why you want to be at Netflix, and if it's only just for the paycheck you probably won't be happy there and that will become obvious.

    Be honest. If you end up here for the wrong reasons you probably won't be happy anyways.

    They only allow u to like or dislike a movie. Can’t write reviews too. But,
    Why not integrate imdb/ rotten tomatoes in their engine which I believe will significantly improve the experience for customer.
    Why not allow me to add my friends/ family, follow their watch list (Spotify is doing it) and recommend movies based on that

      Because IMDB is owned by Amazon, and they have a competing product (Prime Video) which they tie it into.
