    Assistant Editor Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DreamWorks Animation (Glendale, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy process. Was called to schedule an in person interview by HR a week after applying online. Went in a few days later, very much a relaxed atmosphere with my interviewer, more like a conversation with a friend. A recruiter called the next day to "check in" on how my interview went (pretty well, I thought). They were supposed to call me with their decision the following week, but instead I received a rejection via email.

    Overall, it was a very easy process. Wish I had gotten the job!

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DreamWorks Animation (Glendale, CA).

    Interview

    Applied directly with the company. Within about a week, I was being interviewed. Met with one person for the interview. In my honest opinion, that person's behavior was hostile, agressive, abusive, and incredibly unprofessional. It became clear to me why the former position holder left the company for another opportunity.
