    Animator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Albuquerque, NM
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Imageworks (Albuquerque, NM) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Got a call asking if I was interested in an animation position. I said Yes and then was set up with an interview for the following week. Interviewed with Animation Director. Few days later got a call with an offer. Everything went very smoothly. HR at the time was very good and moved things along while keeping you updated if you hadn't heard from them in a few days.

    Interview Questions

    • None, it was the easiest interview ever. It was more like a get to know you type of interview, which was nice. They see if you are interested in the project for the most part. I was prepared for a much harder interview, but didn't have to worry. Most animators are not great interviewees, but that works in your favor. The biggest factor in getting the job will be your animation reel; if the leads and animation director like your work.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They will give you an hourly rate. You can probably negotiate more if you want to, but that could extend the time frame a little as they need to get approval for a higher rate.

    Animator Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Imageworks.

    Interview

    Had several interviews for several of the projects there.
    Some were face to face, some via Google Hangouts.
    Sometimes the directors are working from the Culver City location (California) of Sony Imageworks so we had to conference call with them from Vancouver.
    I've strived to get in Sony for a while so attending those interviews was an exhilarating experience.

    Interview Questions

    • The main question that was asked near the end of each interview was:
      Do you have any questions?  
      1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Oh no negotiations where needed.
    They have a system in how they pay they're employees and they're very considerate with how they compensate you. So no negotiations where needed at my current level.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Imageworks (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    A few emails with the recruiter and then a Skype session, before receiving a phone call discussing salary, and then an offer email. It was very straightforward and simple, as they are pretty much looking at your reel and then interviewing you to see if you're a decent person or not.
