    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at MGA Entertainment (Van Nuys, CA).

    Interview

    Chaotic to say the least, after the phone interview there were 6 onsite interviews - all on different days and some they tried to set up with less than 2 hours notice. Often you would show up and the people slated to interview were not available so you interviewed with people who didn't know anything about the position.

    After 7 weeks of impromptu interviews I accepted a position somewhere else, this didn't stop their recruiter from trying to set up further interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The majority of the questions were about if you had the ability to say no, even if it was to a relative of the president. There were very few work questions; most of them were politically motivated and often they involved questions about your thoughts on the person who had interviewed you prior.   Answer Question
