Senior Designer Interview

Senior Designer
Santa Monica, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at JAKKS Pacific.

Interview Details – 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.
