    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mattel.

    Interview

    Simple Technical and Behavioral Interviews. Received offer fairly quickly after interviewing
    Technical interview hit some fairly specific concepts, so make sure you've done some content review before coming in.
    Lots of questions that emphasized problem solving and creativity
