    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mattel (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    First step was sending CV and covering letter. I got called after 2 weeks after the deadline by HR to schedule first round of interview with HR personnel. This was face to face on campus, held by 2 HR employees (Coordinator and the intern). Fairly easy, typical interview questions.

    After a week or so I was informed that I had been pre-selected for the final stage interview with the hiring manager. This was on the phone, without video. The intern of that time attended too. This time the questions were more job related and concerned also my interest for the business area. lasted for 30 minutes.

    Decision process was longer: I was called after 2 weeks, beginning of March with the news of the job offer.

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Mattel (London, England (UK)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Too easy, the interviewer didn't seem to care. No presentation or competency questions. They find it hard to get good people. High churn. Didn't get to meet the team or understand the politics in the firm. My line manager didn't care.
