    I worked at Lucasfilm Animation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of Star Wars swag, opportunity to work with some of the best in the biz, beautiful offices, generous xmas gifts, cool company parties

    Cons

    Some Difficult personalities, long hours, and major egos, kinda low pay compared to other companies within the industry. Can be competitive between coworkers

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a chance for promotions from within, rather than hiring outside employees to fill new positions

    Associate Technical Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Rafael, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lucasfilm Animation (San Rafael, CA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position, and was contacted within 2 weeks. The interview was scheduled for the following week which was a 1 hour Skype interview. It was very casual. They discussed my previous experience and where I see myself in 5 years. The left the position very vague, and cringed when I asked about job security.

    Reasons for Declining

    I decided it was more effort than it was worth to pick up and move out to the bay area. They didn't offer relocation assistance so I had to take care of everything on my own. They offered much less than industry standard, especially considering the cost of living in the bay area.
