    Advice to Management

    When I started with MGA, i was working at a Marketing Associate. I have been here about 4 years now and have been fortunate enough to switch positions and into roles such as Intl Marketing Coordinator, Intlo Sales Rep, Intl Bus development Manager and Sales Manager. MGA has been great in ensuring I don't get bored here by keeping things new and giving me new projects to work on. As far as politics is concerned, whenever I had a problem with management, I just went to HR. Both the HR personnel in Ohio and in LA talked to my managers in those cases and resolved them to make the issue go away. They really do care about the work conditions so if you are having an issue with someone at the company, your best bet is to go to them; they will help you out; and that includes the CEO. Isaac himself sends out numerous emails whenever rumors start circulating, and he is strict. Basically, he doesnt want gossip on his campus.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at MGA Entertainment (Van Nuys, CA).

    Interview

    Chaotic to say the least, after the phone interview there were 6 onsite interviews - all on different days and some they tried to set up with less than 2 hours notice. Often you would show up and the people slated to interview were not available so you interviewed with people who didn't know anything about the position. After 7 weeks of impromptu interviews I accepted a position somewhere else, this didn't stop their recruiter from trying to set up further interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The majority of the questions were about if you had the ability to say no, even if it was to a relative of the president. There were very few work questions; most of them were politically motivated and often they involved questions about your thoughts on the person who had interviewed you prior.   Answer Question
