I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mattel (El Segundo, CA).
The first round is a phone screen. If you pass phone screen, then you usually interview with 3-4 people from Manager to Director level to identify what team/brand would be a good fit. If the 2nd round goes well, then you usually have final round with a few Directors/VP level. You interview with people that are on the team as well as cross-functional partners you would work with (design, product development, marketing, etc.).
I was able to negotiate 2 week delay before start date to get a bit of time to move & rejuvenate before starting role. Salary at AMM level typically is non-negotiable and pretty fair compensation to start.
