Mission: The Workshop’s mission is to use the educational power of media to help children everywhere grow smarter, stronger, and kinder.
I have been working at Sesame Workshop full-time (More than 5 years)
I feel badly for anyone who has had a poor experience working at Sesame Workshop. This place is filled with not only very smart people - but people who truly care about the cause and effects which cause them to do, what they do - so very well. I am very proud of the direction the company is going in.
the hours can be long.. and yes there are cliques here and there.
Advice to Management
Focus a bit more on the sesame lifers. I think they feel left out or intimidated by the new hires, younger crowds and change of process. Change can wither be as painful as ripping off a Band-Aid or flow easily like water...Also continue the great work that you all have been doing. I Like it!
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sesame Workshop in September 2016.
It wasn't a long process at all. I appiled one week through the companys website and got contacted back one week later to come in. I thought the interview was going well. The interviewer asked me questions based on my resume and we even started to have conversations about lighter topics. All in all I thought the interview went great. After the interview I was told I would get contacted back the next week about a second interview but it never happened, and even to this day I never recieved any follow up from the interviewer regarding my standing.
