    Animator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albuquerque, NM
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albuquerque, NM
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Imageworks in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Got a call asking if I was interested in an animation position. I said Yes and then was set up with an interview for the following week. Interviewed with Animation Director. Few days later got a call with an offer. Everything went very smoothly. HR at the time was very good and moved things along while keeping you updated if you hadn't heard from them in a few days.

    Interview Questions
    • None, it was the easiest interview ever. It was more like a get to know you type of interview, which was nice. They see if you are interested in the project for the most part. I was prepared for a much harder interview, but didn't have to worry. Most animators are not great interviewees, but that works in your favor. The biggest factor in getting the job will be your animation reel; if the leads and animation director like your work.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They will give you an hourly rate. You can probably negotiate more if you want to, but that could extend the time frame a little as they need to get approval for a higher rate.

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Imageworks in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    They say they are interested in you but then come back and say they have to find jobs for the Culver city people first - no matter the talent level. Turned me right off from wanting to work there ever. They are hiring based on seniority not on talent and skill.

    Interview Questions
    • My background is multiple show programming and then they asked if I wanted to work for just one show. Did you even read my resume and cover letter?   Answer Question

    got an email for a phone interview. Phone interview was with 3 leads in the cloth and hair department. The feeling I got was that I had the job in the bag and they were afraid I wouldn't be interested.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    I did not ask for more money, but the HR lady somehow got me 2k more a year without me asking.
    I negotiated the ability to sub out a friday for OT the rest of the week, once a month, so I could travel back home and visit my son. Since this job had me moving 1000 miles away.
