Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Mattel (New York, NY) in December 2010.

Interview

It went really well. I interviewed with about 6 different people so everyone got a chance to see if I was a good fit for the team.

    Application

    The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Mattel (New York, NY) in February 2010.

    Interview

    The office is very small - 100/200 people max. It's a small company within a mega corporate behemoth. I interviewed with the entire marketing management teams because it's small and I would ultimately be working with everyone. Standard questions, nothing out of the ordinary. They in no way tried to trick me or tested me. If they already decided they liked me, they stopped asking questions and we started talking about other things (kids, tv shows, partners etc.). I would say this was very relaxed and they make you feel very comfortable.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    One sided.

    Application

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Mattel (New York, NY) in October 2007.

    Interview

    First I was contacted by email. Since I was out of the country but was coming back a few weeks later they were very accomodating and set up a date that was right for me. First I was interviewed by the person who would have been my manager, then two of the would-be colleagues came and explained my role, and then I had another interview with Human Resources. They contacted me back about two weeks later with a negative response.

    It was a relatively quick process. Once I submitted my resume, I received a call within the day, and was invited for an in-person interview shortly afterwards. I received an offer within 3 days of my on-site interview
