Intern Reviews

  • “I feel very fulfilled and content working here at DreamWorks. The company culture is one that prioritizes kindness and learning for all their employees, so as an intern, we greatly benefit from that. We have plenty of time to be hands-on with the work we do while also attending company celebrations or having spare time for coffee chats. As summer interns, we work 40 hours a week, but every intern's work schedule is adjusted on a case-by-case basis since some are in school or have other time obligations.”
  • “Work/Life balance is fantastic at DreamWorks; it feels like you are treated respectfully and as part of the team rather than just another intern. My supervisors and mentors were very mindful of my workload and were receptive to my requests for more or less work, depending on the situation. Company culture and environment is an absolute pleasure to be a part of. Everyone is friendly and welcoming, it's genuinely exciting to come to work. The company events are a mix of learning opportunities and also chances to socialize with other people at the company. It truly is a wonderful place to work!”
  • “There is an amazing balance working here, and the company culture fosters solid values that I can relate to. The work environment is great because we have a lovely walkable garden and beautiful campus overall.”
  • “The culture at DreamWorks revolves around the shared passion for developing stories from diverse communities and shining the spotlight on unconventional heroes. My voice feels heard and respected as an intern. [Summer] interns work 40 hours a week, 9 a.m.–6 p.m. My team strives to maintain a healthy work-life balance and constantly reminds me not to take work home, which has been a hard, but positive, rhythm to adjust to compared to my college work-life balance.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “Interviews were very easygoing and felt more like conversations, and communication with recruitment was very solid.”
  • “I think the selective standards are high, you definitely get the sense that these are very competitive positions. Overall, though, the process was very easy to navigate, and the recruiter team is fantastic. All interviewers I got to interact with were incredibly professional as well as engaging.”
  • “My recruiter and interviewers were extremely kind and supportive throughout the process. I felt comfortable and clear about every step in the process. The interviews were not difficult if you did your research on the position and interviewers. I was able to be myself in every interaction with my recruiter and during my final interview, which I really appreciated.”
  • “After applying, I had an informal phone interview with a recruiter. Then, I interviewed with the producers of the show I worked on. The interview was very relaxed. There were no super hard questions, it felt like a conversation where they were trying to get to know me and my interests.”
