    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at FUNimation.

    Interview

    After some brief phone interviews I was invited to an in-person portfolio review followed by an in-person interview with HR and a tour of the FUNimation offices. The interview process was standard. Everyone was friendly during my interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at FUNimation in March 2015.

    Interview

    Originally applied for another position in December 2014, but never heard back after initial contact (never made it to an in-person interview, but was told they were going to schedule one when they went cold on me). I decided to try for another position I was equally as passionate about and was contacted by HR for a phone interview. Pretty standard. Said they liked me, so we scheduled an in-person interview. Several employees came to interview me. Also pretty standard, although I would have liked to have known it was not a 1:1 interview (HR never got back to me with specific details prior to the interview). I've contacted both HR and the interview staff since the interview, but no response (like before). Found out through an employee there that they hired someone else. Would loved to have been shown some professional courtesy. Just send me an e-mail and tell me you went another direction! Anything other than that is unprofessional and rude (and an easy way to burn bridges).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at FUNimation in February 2011.

    Interview

    Initial Communications were good. Phone interviews went well, easy get-to-know you kind of style. Then came in for the 1-on-1 interview, but first was given a skills test re: artwork and corrections you would make to some of their product/art...I guess I did alright on that part. During the interview portion, I felt like the position was already filled as I felt the interviewer was just going through the motions and half listening. Talked to HR and filled out their forms for a background check, etc. Then never heard from them again. 5 or 6 months later, I was called by HR regarding another position and when I came in I interviewed with 2 people for a newly formed position (after waiting a really LONG time.) Also never heard back from them but I did hear from a friend who worked there that they hired internally for that position.

    Interview Questions

    • ODD question - they confided that they are all geeks there, and asked if I was too...I said yes so as to conform to their culture (entirely ungeeky), and then they asked what was my dorkiest hobby was? Uhhhhh? I was stumped. I think I said I like to read. LOL. That was obviously not geeky enough to work there!! I blame it on that one year of cheer-leading, those geeks could smell it on me! ;-/   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at FUNimation (Flower Mound, TX) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Initially I was contact for a phone interview. The employer was friendly and knowledgeable. Upon completion of my phone interview, I was invited back for an in-person interview and an assessment test. The building was really exciting to see, decorated with posters from shows that they license. The work stations are setup in cubicles - but the spaces itself is open and the departments are disconnected. Each cubicle was elaborately decorated with toys, posters and other collectible items. Being given a tour of the building is a really nice touch. After I spoke with the employer for a while, I performed my assessment. While still nervous, I feel like the environment makes it a lot easier to work in. Everyone at the company was friendly and unique. People are allowed to be themselves.
