    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Mattel.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was simple enough. It starts with an initial telephone interview, then a manager will come in to meet with you face to face. It will begin with some small talk, but will eventually end up with the generic canned questions such as "give me an example of a difficult situation you had to deal with and what you did" type thing.

    Supply Chain Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Mattel.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from a third party recruiting service in the evening after having applied on Mattel's website.

    The position was a great fit given my experience and I more than satisfied all of the requirements. The recruiter asked about my expected salary, which is maybe why I didn't get a call back but I was very surprised that no one even emailed to say I wouldn't be moving further in the process.

    Left a bad taste in my mouth for Mattel considering I spent almost half an hour talking to a recruiter and answering interview questions (unexpectedly, not scheduled,) just to have them never get back to me. Very unprofessional not to say thank you but no thank you after investing time.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the position via an application on the company's website. After I was initially contacted, I completed 4 interviews before I was extended the offer of employment. Since I was located in a different state than the office, I communicated via e-mail and my interviews were conducted via phone and Skype.

    Senior Packaging Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Mattel in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a quick phone interview and asked to come in. There is a lot of paperwork to fill out so save enough time to fill it out before your interview, they will be e-mail to you.

    For the design position, which was not in the main Mattel corporate office, there is limited parking. I was lucky enough to find a visitors spot in the front but I took the last one, so plan accordingly to search if needed.

    The design building is great, doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside, there are graphics and designed stuff throughout. They even have the employees personal artwork hanging while walking through one of the hallways.

    The interview went well and everyone was extremely nice. I enjoyed everyone I met with. They looked at my work, we went through the most current positions and my roles. They did research about me so they knew some items off the resume which is great and they were impressed.

    After a little over 2 1/2 hours we were done.
