    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burbank, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cartoon Network (Burbank, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was really easy. About a month after I initially applied online I got an interview through Hirevue, where I didn't speak with anyone in person but they gave me questions to answer and I recorded them. It was quick and not very stressful at all. I'm still waiting to hear back so that's why I'm going to say "didn't get an offer" but I'm hoping that won't be the case and that I'll advance to the next round.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your dream job, what shows are you watching lately, why I want the job   Answer Question

    Comedy Animation Development Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cartoon Network (Burbank, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I sent in my cover letter and resume online and after 4 weeks, I was emailed by an HR representative asking to do an online interview using HireVue! HireVue is an automated interview program where the computer gives you a question, you get 30 seconds to prepare your answer, and then you have one minute to record it. You get three tries per question to record. This was kind of nerve-wracking because there's no people there to talk to, it's just you and the computer. It's kind of a skype-type layout where the video of you is in the bottom right corner and the question is in the upper right corner, but Cartoon Network was super sweet and put gifs in the center for me to talk to! For example, one of the questions had a gif of Jake from Adventure Time there which is one of my favorite cartoons. They really tried to make sure the interview was as relaxed as possible. Two weeks after submitting my HireVue interview, I was contacted by a producer at the studio asking for a Skype interview (as I don't live in LA). That interview took place one week later with three producers. It was so relaxed and sweet, it felt like I was talking to friends. They asked me about my artistic influences, favorite shows, and a lot of things from my resume/cover letter and my assets to a team. Definitely review your cover letter and resume, there were a few behavioral questions but most was grounded in the resume. Be sure to ask the producers questions too, they leave a good portion of time at the end for you to ask them stuff. A couple days later I was called by an HR representative with the job offer!

    Production Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cartoon Network (Burbank, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Went through two phases. One was a pre-recorded interview, where you would record yourself after each pre-recorded question. The second interview was a group interview with the crew (the producer, the PM, the storyboard scanner, and the two PC's) and myself over skype. The questions were not scary and ranged from your favorite CN products/shows/interest to describe how you overcame a challenge in your experience and working with team members. During the group interview they basically went down my resume and also asked questions about myself and what I would be doing. They loved hearing that I had former production experience and managing a team. Prepare some questions to ask them!

    Interview Questions

    Casual, very nice interview. The woman asked me some personal questions (tell me about your school, what are you involved in, and so forth) as well as professional ("tell me a time when..."). I got the call within two weeks that I would be interning with Cartoon Network for $8/hr, which was the first paid internship I had. Overall great experience

    Director Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cartoon Network (Burbank, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Short meeting with creators and producer, then a start date. That was it. It was simple, "Are you available, and here is the offer." Since I worked in the studio in the past, and knew a lot of people, the process was very simple for me. Others would need a portfolio review and a bit more of an interview, I am sure.

    Production Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burbank, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cartoon Network (Burbank, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Be sure to write a solid cover letter and resume. Thats probably the most difficult part of the process.

    I had 3 interviewers and we were all inside of an office. I walked out a little shocked at how easy it all was, it really didn't feel like an interview. In the past I have interviewed with WB and that interview was very tense and they were asking me typical interview questions like "whats your greatest weakness?" This didn't have any questions like that, within a few minutes it just felt like we were just a bunch of friends hanging out joking around. The first 10 minutes they asked questions about what I was interested in school and some of my hobbies. After that I spent another 20 minutes asking them questions about what it was like working there. You interview with the producer of the show they assign you to, so your experience could be different. My producers were SUPER nice and nobody was stressed out at all, it just made for a really calming environment.

    Some quick tips i forgot to mention:
    Know your schedule/ what days you are free to work
    Be professional
    You can park at public parking garages nearby in the downtown burbank area and walk over
    Show your excitement to be there!

    If you get an interview try not to stress out about too much, be sure to ask questions, and good luck!

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult questions. An example of a question would be "What are you watching on tv?" Turns out we were watching the same show and we nerded out about it.
