    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DreamWorks Animation in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online to the Department TD position and was contacted by a recruiter within a week. I was told more specifics about the position and then scheduled an interview with a current Department TD for the next week. That interview asked lots of generic computer science and graphics questions, along with a brain teaser. I was told that I needed more technical experience and to reapply later.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at DreamWorks Animation (Redwood City, CA (US)) in May 2009.

    Interview

    My undergrad college and dreamworks animation had a collaboration, where I was selected for an internship as credits towards the final semester.
    initial communications were by sending a resume, portfolio, personal statements and letters of recommendation (univ.) to DWA for shortlisting candidates to be interviewed.
    If selected, this is usually followed up with a technical interview with a Technical Director employee at DWA.
    A knowledge of core computer science and graphics is really useful.

    DWA is a great place to work and learn about the animation industry. Colleagues are super helpful and especially as someone completely new to the studio environment, I felt they were extremely helpful and inspiring people to work with.
