    I applied online. I interviewed at DreamWorks Animation.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with recruiter, then remote web conference interview with department head. Took about 2-3 months for me to hear back from the recruiter after submitting my application. The entire process took about 3 months until the start of the internship.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical/theoretical discussions regarding certain topics relevant to the position. No problem-solving questions. The interview was more based on a discussion of the understanding of certain concepts.   Answer Question
