    Junior Animator Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mainframe Studios.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR, and then had video interviews. They were pretty standard interviews. The people I spoke with were super nice and easy to talk to. I was actually interviewed by two different teams, and they had different approaches to it, but both went well and I felt comfortable talking with everyone.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mainframe Studios in November 2020.

    Interview

    Before my interview I was given a storyboard test that had to be done in only 48 hours. They didnt give me any references at all so I had to do all my own research and they didnt pay me either. So most of my interview they were just going over my test about the strengths and weaknesses

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mainframe Studios (Guadalajara, Jalisco (Mexico)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Animator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Mainframe Studios (Vancouver, BC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I went in to their studio where I was interviewed by a supervisor. My reel was played and it was paused at each section for discussion. The project they were hiring for was touched on briefly but no details were given. No details like start dates or contract duration were shared. It was pleasant but it was noncommittal. I got the impression they weren't hiring now or in the near future. I didn't hear back.
