May be a dumb question, but a food truck I want to try is going to be at Warner Bros in Burbank.

Do you know if it will be INSIDE the studio lot? Or outside where I (not a WB employee) can get to it?

Thx!

Hmmm, I would think that it means it will actually be ON the lot, but I don't remember any food trucks when I worked at Warner Bros. I don't think there is any street parking around the Warner Bros. lot so I doubt it would park outside. Maybe one of the nice guards will get you something from the truck if you give him money, lol.

This post reminded me that the Warner Bros. cafeteria had really good food and I miss it. I swear, I hated working at the studios but walking around the lots is something I still miss so much.

Cool, thanks. I'll probably go check it out myself, just in case, and report back.

Yeah, I can imagine that walking around the lots was super fun. I picture it like that scene in Peewee's Big Adventure, heh.

I went. I saw. I ate.

It was outside the lot on Warner Ave. A bunch of food trucks. Delicious!

How much was the food and what did they serve?

Also, anyone know how hard is it to land a job at one of the studios? Even it's something entry level like administrative work?

The upscale food truck is a newer trend in the last few years. They move around the city and pick pre-designated spots on certain days and post it on their sites/blog so people can find them. Search the net and you'll find their sites and the prices should be posted.

I'll defer the studio job to an insider.

I'm glad you got to eat! Getting a studio job is part insane persistence and part luck. Temping is the best way to get in.

I've been stalking the Cousins Maine Lobster truck for about 2 weeks now, and I finally got to go.

I got the lobster roll for $13 (which sounds like a lot, but actually it's cheaper than the lobster rolls I used to get back on the East Coast. And it's the only place that I know of in LA that has lobster rolls. It was DELICIOUS! Definitely worth it)

I also went to the "After School Special" food truck and got my daughter a PB&J sandwich for $4. It had potato chips in it, which was interesting. There was also a burger truck and I think a sushi truck. My husband got a turkey burger at the burger truck (don't know how much it was. $4 I think) and ended up waiting 30 minutes for it. That was a bit much, but everyone hanging around (waiting for their food) was pretty friendly and we ended up chatting with a bunch of them while we waited. My lobster roll took less than 5 minutes. PB&J took, like, 15-20 minutes (which I felt was kind of too long)

As for landing a job at the studios, you could always go hang out by the Warner Bros food trucks and hope to be discovered. There were a ton of employees there. At the very least, you'll eat well.
