    - Fun place to work

    Cons

    - Some tech choices veer from best tools on market
    - Animation tools' backward compatibility leaves some systems a bit antiquated

    Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glendale, CA
    No Offer
    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.
