    I worked at Toys for Bob full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some friendly and skilled people. Dog friendly casual work enviroment.

    Cons

    Many of the people that made Skylanders have left. Paul Reiche is no longer managing the company. New management seems inexperienced in game production. Housing in the area is very expensive.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Toys for Bob (Novato, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and one on-site interview. I spoke with the HR Manager and the Head of Talent Acquisition on the phone. During the on-site I met with several members from the business, including senior leadership. The process was fairly quick and the only delays were to be expected with the end of the year holidays and office closures.
