    HR spontaneously calls for a chat, but this is actually the phone interview. Went to the Glendale location for an interview. The interviewers were really nice and conversational.

    Dreamworks was extremely prompt and professional. I met with one person in-person and the other three people via video conference. They were very courteous and didn't ask any inappropriate questions.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at DreamWorks Animation.

    Interview Details

    Sent in a resume and a cover letter, got a call back to schedule an interview. Phone guy was pretty rude, though I can understand as there was some background noise on my end. Interview took place on their canvas, which was insanely beautiful. The woman interviewing me took one look at me and (it seemed like a bad time?) headed out to a screening, and had me tag along, just walking through the halls. Very little actual conversation, probably the strangest and least professional interview I've had to date. I'd guess that she had already interviewed a candidate that she liked and was just paying lip service to the rest of the interviewees.

    But, I would guess that I just lucked out with a bad interview, since Dreamworks Animation seems like an otherwise great company to work for.
