    I worked at Marvel Entertainment as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The work was always interesting and it was great learning about the industry and the way comics are made. Everyone was nice, inviting, and friendly, as well as interested and invested in their work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately as an unpaid intern, I didn't get to do as much actual work as I would've liked. Most of my days were spent reading the backlog of comics to pass the time while my supervisor tried to find stuff for me to do.

    Coordinator Interview

    Interview Details

    I applied for a job at Marvel through a linkedin job posting. Three days later, I was contacted for an interview for a couple of days after that. It seemed that they were desperate to fulfill the position. The HR coordinator told me I would be meeting with the manager of the department and hinted that if I had impressed them I would meet the VP of the department. I arrived at the Marvel HQ and I first had to fill out over 20 minutes of tedious paperwork. The secretary told me I would actually be meeting with the VP of the department and hinted that if I impressed them, I would meet with the manager of the department (the exact opposite of what the HR coordinator told me). The VP asked many standard interview questions about my experience and my reactions to situations, all pretty normal. The VP had a great enough impression so he sent in the manager and another employee in the department to come speak to me. These two individuals did not ask me any questions, instead they started selling me all the perks about working for Marvel! At that point, I felt that I had passed the interview and now Marvel was trying to make me as interested as possible in their company. I left Marvel after being interviewed by the three people for over an hour feeling great. The manager told me that by the next week they would have a response and that she would "see me soon." I sent my thank you emails to everyone and waited. Three weeks later and no response I called the manager who said the VP was still deciding yet she wanted to hire me out of the candidates. I sent more emails to the VP and the manager along with the HR coordinator over time. It hit 3 months since I interviewed and I decided to call the HR coordinator. She had notified me that they offered the position to someone yesterday and hadn't had the time to send emails to other candidates. I was livid; I was led on to believe that they were interested in me and it took them 3 months to notify me. It's close to 4 months since I interviewed AND I NEVER RECEIVED AN EMAIL. To make matters worse, I discovered on linkedin that the person who got the job was an intern in the department who they hired full-time. In all fairness, I think that the intern did deserve the job over any person (like myself) who they interviewed. But the fact that Marvel wasted so much of my time (and I'm sure other candidates) shows how rude of a company they are and how much they lack common decency.

Marvel Entertainment's success rests on the strength (and marketability) of its characters. The firm lends its more than 5,000 characters (which include Iron Man, Spider-Man, and X-Men) to publishing, licensing, and film production operations. Through Marvel Publishing, the company is the #1 comic book publisher with a 40% market share. Marvel earns toy licensing revenues through a deal with Hasbro. Other licensing fees come from character use in consumer products such as clothing and video games. Marvel-produced movies include Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor, and... More
