    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glendale, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at DreamWorks Animation (Glendale, CA (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was rejected from one of the departments but I followed up and got 2 other opportunities for interview. First, HR calls to screen you and make sure you're not crazy. Then on the exact same day they offer you Skype or in-person for the second round. Supervisor was super chill, only briefly glossed over skill sets and experiences. Didn't even ask if I knew most of their movies. Mostly we just chitchatted. I talked about what I did in school, my future plans, being international etc. We got along really well and she even gave me a hug at the end! HR was especially efficient and got back within days.

    Sent my resume, cover letter online. Received an email asking me for a good time for a phone interview. Got the phone call 2 days later, it was a very informal chill conversation to get a feel for what you are all about and what you want from the company, then came in for a group interview with what could be my superiors and it was also very chill and very comfortable. I pretty much talked about myself for a while and the type of experience that I've had to be a good candidate for this job. waiting to hear back from them...

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DreamWorks Animation.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me out of the blue and asked if I would be interested in the position. We had a quick phone interview and then I went in the following week. The interview went well and was very relaxed.

    The recruiter and I had another phone call to touch base. She said they really liked me and that I would be contacted for the second round soon. Some time went by, so I sent her an email, no response. I called, but couldn't get ahold of her. I called the woman I interviewed with; she said they were still interviewing candidates and that I would be contacted the next week. The next week I emailed the recruiter again, no response. I never heard from them ever again! So weird considering they contacted me about the position and then told me they liked me.

    Interview Questions

    • Very easy, the interview was more of a conversation than a lot of questions.   Answer Question
