    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at JAKKS Pacific (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    Nothing out of the ordinary. If your portfolio speaks for itself, it's not that difficult. Interviewed with VP of creative and a couple of directors. Everyone was very pleasant. It's a very busy place, so you have to demonstrate energy, confidence and get it done attitude. It helps if you have experience with licensor approval process, communicating with Hong Kong, photo shoots and packaging.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The offer was fair. Did not negotiate.
