    I worked at Marvel Publishing as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The characters and visibility working with them can bring.

    Cons

    The editors, assistant editors, almost everyone had a snobby elitist attitude. All the talk of wanting "diversity," led to most decision makers, who were white, hiring other whites. The women meanwhile: many leaned to the far left and seemed a bit discriminatory in wanting to mainly work with other women.

    Advice to Management

    Cancel the entire line, fire everyone involved with the SJW Era, and hire people that have a true diversity of opinion.

    Graphic Design Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marvel Publishing (New York, NY (US)) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Since I applied to numerous paid positions with Marvel over the years and never even got so much as a reply back, I decided to do a little "experiment". I decided to apply to one of their hundreds of un-paid internships. And whaddya know?! I got an interview… sort of.

    This so-called interview was one of the most negative and stand-offish experiences I've had to endure… To make a long story short, the AD sat behind me and worked away while his clueless subordinate undermined my portfolio page by page. I had a book full of projects featuring Marvel characters from a now defunct comic book magazine. This fact was completely ignored. To top it all off, at the end of this ego-killing-sit-down, Mr. AD's subordinate mentioned "some future freelance work". I realized this was BS when I never heard back… from anyone.

    Have fun being under Mickey's rule Marvel… I hear "the Rat" is a Tyrant.

    Interview Questions

    • Got the message that this internship was already filled when Mr. AD asked me "Have you been told about internships in other departments?" Thanks for wasting my time Marvel.   Answer Question
