    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DreamWorks Animation (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Terrible. HR leader didn't even know why I was there; recruiter had me come in for a position that never materialized. The recruiter was adamant that a job would be opening and had me come in, but never followed up or called back at any point.
