    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at TOKYOPOP in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted and asked for a longer resume and salary requirements. I never heard back once I sent them and got no further response when I followed up. Advice I would give for this company is don't give a number you want for salary up front. They also seem to not have much of a budget.
