    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. J'ai passé un entretien à DreamWorks Animation (Burbank, CA (États-Unis)) en septembre 2020.

    Entretien

    Three rounds of interviews, where they play your reel and get a scope of technical and personality attributes. They have you in a room where it almost feels like a police interrogation. Get ready for it because its very intimidating and uncomfortable.

    I first applied online and completed the video screening process. I heard back about a couple weeks later and was offered an interview at the studio. The interview questions were straightforward and lasted about 15-20 minutes. Everyone was friendly and helpful throughout the process.

    Applied online on the job board. Received an email to schedule a phone interview the following week. Passed the phone interview with HR, then went on a in person interview with the SVP of the department two weeks later. Was then sent a test a week later and I turned it in. Got the job offer a week later and accepted.

    Entretien de Production Assistant

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience négative
    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris 4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à DreamWorks Animation en mai 2020.

    Entretien

    The first part of the interview process was a phone interview (set up over email) with a recruiter, who was very nice! It was a pleasant, quick conversation to let me know that a team was interested in interviewing with me.

    I feel very bad and am disappointed to have had a negative experience interviewing at DreamWorks. Unfortunately, the lack of preparation from my interviewers was the reason why it was not a good interview experience.

    I hope this does not discourage anyone who is reading this and preparing for their own interview - the most important thing to take away from this review is that how your interview goes might be out of your control. Be prepared for anything - including tired production staff who happen to be your interviewers.

    Though PA starting pay is relatively low, DreamWorks is a wonderful place to work and I don't want to lower your excitement for their position - so please consider not reading further until after your interview.

    My interviewers were kind, yet distracted. They disclosed that they were on the first of many PA interviews that day and had to take time to read my resume during the interview - after the main interviewer was late. I'm disappointed at the fact they were not prepared to interview their first candidate, which felt like they did not seem interested in interviewing me from the beginning.

    They asked me two questions (mentioned below) and then spent the rest of the interview talking about the position and warning me about how unexciting the job's function is. I made it clear I was very interested in the position and that I didn't mind doing exactly what the job entailed, but I find it odd that they were trying to test me and see if they could scare me away from the job. It made the interview awkward and it was clear that the two interviewers were not on the same page in terms of what they wanted to learn from a candidate.

    On the positive side, my half-hour went from an interview to a conversation - and I appreciated that aspect of the experience. It allowed me to understand who my potential bosses were and their leadership styles - and ultimately, how I would be valued in my position on their team.

    I highly doubt that anyone from DreamWorks will read this, but for anyone who will be hiring in the future, I highly encourage you to be thoughtful about the interview process and respect your candidates' time. Your interviewees want to be their best for you, so help them succeed. At the very least, prepare for the interview - know why you want to hire the candidate and touch base beforehand with the other interviewers. And finally, don't scare your interviewees - that's poor etiquette on the interviewers part. How well you conduct yourself in an interview reflects on your leadership style, how you are as a team member, and how the candidate may view the company.

    It was a good learning experience that taught me to be prepared for anything - your interviewers might be looking for a fun conversation or they might not know what they want at all! The best advice I can give other candidates is to expect the unexpected. You could be a great fit at DreamWorks, but not for that team. Keep going and good luck!

    Entretien de Desktop Support

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme
    Offre déclinée
    Expérience négative
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé un entretien à DreamWorks Animation.

    Entretien

    I was called at about 7 PM - 5PM their time. A man called me, said he was with NBC Universal to hire for Dreamworks. We had an interview a few days later. This was around December 2018, and he said he would reach out again in the new year.

    E-mailed, never received a response.

    I follow the animation industry as a hobby, and Dreamworks is constantly being sold from studio to studio, so people were probably let go and replaced with...who owns them now? Universal's staff probably happened, but a response would have been great.

    It involved talking to the recruiter first via a phone interview. Then after the responses were recorded, I was invited to interview for the role under the supervisor of that internship position.

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à DreamWorks Animation.

    Entretien

    Heard from a recruiter a few weeks after submitting my online application. Scheduled a phone interview, and the same day she offered me an in-person interview for the next day. The team was super nice and the questions were very straightforward. The recruiter told me it would be about 2 weeks. Emailed her to follow up, and she responded a week later to schedule a phone call, in which she told me I did not get the position. Up until this point, I had really enjoyed my experience interviewing with DreamWorks, but I thought it was very bizarre to schedule a one minute phone call to reject someone and not give any real feedback on their performance.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. J'ai passé un entretien à DreamWorks Animation.

    Entretien

    A recruiter contacted me out of the blue and asked if I would be interested in the position. We had a quick phone interview and then I went in the following week. The interview went well and was very relaxed.

    The recruiter and I had another phone call to touch base. She said they really liked me and that I would be contacted for the second round soon. Some time went by, so I sent her an email, no response. I called, but couldn't get ahold of her. I called the woman I interviewed with; she said they were still interviewing candidates and that I would be contacted the next week. The next week I emailed the recruiter again, no response. I never heard from them ever again! So weird considering they contacted me about the position and then told me they liked me.

    Fairly simple. I applied online and heard back about 3 weeks later. The HR recruiter was nice and let me know that she wanted me to come in for an interview. She advised me about what the position would entail and asked me what my favorite movie was.
