    Senior Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Monica, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at JAKKS Pacific (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    I was recommended by a friend/former coworker that was working there.
    I was called in for an interview. I was not allowed to park in guest parking and had to park on the street.

    Once we found a room that we could use, the interview was fairly short and average. The company was made to sound fun and innovative. I later found out that that is not actually the case.
    I was made an offer about 2-3 weeks later. The offer was lower than what I asked for and the title was lower than my previous.

    It took over a month for HR to formally contact me. Apparently my paperwork got lost and someone went on vacation. Ha, I guess I should have paid attention to the red flags.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. They would't budge on the lowball pay.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at JAKKS Pacific (Santa Monica, CA).

    Nothing out of the ordinary. If your portfolio speaks for itself, it's not that difficult. Interviewed with VP of creative and a couple of directors. Everyone was very pleasant. It's a very busy place, so you have to demonstrate energy, confidence and get it done attitude.
    It helps if you have experience with licensor approval process, communicating with Hong Kong, photo shoots and packaging.
