Marketing Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Hasbro.
Interview Details – Hasbro is a great, even iconic company, but the interview process was anything but. I was contacted by a recruiter regarding her interest in my background. She found me on online, and given the strength of the Hasbro brand and the success of the company, I was definitely excited to get the call. After that, the process took over four months. Worst of all, after countless interviews and even traveling to Pawtucket for the final round interview, I never actually got a response regarding the outcome let alone feedback about their decision process.
As for the interview itself, I interviewed with three individuals at the company headquarters in Pawtucket, RI. The questions were pretty standard, but two of the interviewers were actually pretty rude and inconsiderate. Plus, my "interview day" was so disorganized it felt as if they didn't even know I was going to be there. Perhaps the company is just disjointed (a mess is probably more accurate), but for such a major company and one with great successes, it was surprisingly bad on almost all accounts.
Electrical Intern Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Hasbro in May 2012.
Interview Details – The guy interviewed me in the afternoon. I could see him exhausted and his face was in red. No interests in asking questions at all, he just wanted to leave. I would not apply for the position again.
Marketing Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Hasbro.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter for a marketing position. After her initial contact she was very difficult to get a hold of, and would rarely return my calls and voicemails. After my in person interviews with the team, I did not receive any feedback on why I was no longer being considered for the position.
Interview Question – Interview questions were fairly standard Answer Question
Very Easy Interview

Project Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Hasbro
Interview Details – 2 sets of in person interviews, one with HR and 2 members of the team. Next round was in person with the same 2 members of the team and another person with similar past experience.
Interview Question – Mostly focused on the level to which I would be committed to entering a new role that was offered, if that opportunity arose. Answer Question
Undisclosed Engineering-related Position Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Hasbro.
Interview Details – Was first contacted by an outside recruiter who then submitted my resume. Next I had a phone interview with an internal recruiter. He called half an hour later than expected with no explanation but was otherwise professional and asked relevant and reasonable questions. After submitting a work sample an interview was scheduled on-site.
The first person, my would-be immediate superior, spent almost the entire hour speaking and asked very few questions. They left a good impression on me. The next scheduled person wasn't in, and I met instead a more senior person in the group. The person was looking at my resume for the first time (judging by the questions) and may not have known I was coming or seen my work sample. The person first spent a good amount of time asking probing personal questions. The person's demeanor was dismissive and impatient, one of the rudest encounters I've had in an interview. At no point was I tested on relevant knowledge or ability to perform.
After sending a thank-you note the next day I received no follow ups whatsoever from anyone. The job posting remained up for several months. It is now down and it's unclear from linkedin whether anyone was finally hired.
Finally, when I wanted to do a post-portem with the internal recruiter three months after interviewing, they were already working elsewhere.
Interview Question – Mostly it was the lack of any relevant questions - nothing even along the lines of "do you know product/technology so-and-so". Answer Question
Girls Toy Design Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Hasbro in March 2010.
Interview Details – The recruiter was very nice. They currently did not have a position open, but were looking for talent and making connections. It was extremely casual. She didn't ask a question to start off with so you had to direct the conversation. She also asked about projects in my portfolio. Brought portfolios back with her.
Interview Question – You know when you have a real job you'll only have to work 9-5 right? Answer Question
Reporting Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Hasbro in March 2010.
Interview Details – Overall the interview process was status quo as interviews go. Simple easy conversation none of the standard interview questions "Tell me about a time when..." or strengths and weaknesses. Although I had prepped for anything. It is a long time in between first and second interview then awhile for the final outcome.
