    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at DreamWorks Animation in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    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...
