    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Blizzard Entertainment (Irvine, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    There were 3 parts to the interview process. First was with the recruiter to know my background and prep me for the second interview. The second interview was a technical interview with the tech lead of the team. That interview was roughly an hour phone call touching across common back-end interview questions. After that, they decide whether to bring you on campus for a final round interview. It was roughly 6.5 hour interview, separated into individual sections that included lunch.

    I went through a recruiter. I had a conversation with the recruiter, then a phone interview with the team. After the phone interview I was offered an on-site interview. The process included a take home exam, a written exam on-site, and a panel of people interviewing with a couple of questions on the whiteboard.

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Januar 2020 bei Blizzard Entertainment (Irvine, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Everyone was friendly and professional throughout the process. Recruiters did a great job communicating with me. Blizzard places a strong emphasis on culture fit and passion for games, so be prepared to talk about both.

    My process started with a 1 hour phone call with a recruiter, which was mainly walking through my past experience. Afterwards, I had a 1 hour technical phone call with the leads of the team I would be joining, which was more in-depth to make sure that my skills matched the job description. Then, I took a short programming test at home, which tested basic programming knowledge in game development. Finally, I visited Irvine for a full day onsite interview with multiple rounds, which covered a wide variety of skill and culture fit questions.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online and spoke to their recruiter after a few days. She was very informative about the whole process and very responsive. Did an initial phone interview with the hiring manager for an hour and was able to convey my experience and expectations for the role. After a few weeks, went onto the Blizzard campus for the onsite interview. The campus is sprawling, with many artifacts of Blizzard games. You can definitely feel the excitement and culture of the company just walking around the space.

    The onsite interview consisted of several 1 on 1 and group panels, taking up around 6 hours. It was a fair interview with a broad range of topics, some technical, others cultural. I came away with it impressed at everyone's professionalism and their overall goal to improve the company's core values.

    After the interview panel, I was shown around the campus and was provided a goodie bag as well. The offer came in after a few days and I accepted. Everything was well informed and transparent. I want to provide a special shoutout to the recruiting team that made this smooth.

    From me applying to getting an offer letter took about 2 months. In this time I had a screener interview with the recruiter, a technical phone screen with the hiring manager (team lead), 75-minute online assessment, and then a half-day onsite interview.

    Everyone in the process was super nice and friendly.

    The entire process seemed organized and was scheduled well.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Dezember 2019 bei Blizzard Entertainment (Irvine, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The entire process took just over 2 months to complete. This was delayed a bit due to Thanksgiving break and Blizzcon occurring during my interview process.

    I applied on linkedIn after seeing a job posting and then was reached out to by the in house recruiter a few days later. We had a 30 minute phone call going over what the roll would entail. At the end of the call the recruiter told me the next step would be a technical phone interview.

    A few days later I had the technical phone interview. I was interviewed by the hiring manager on the team and a developer that I would potentially be working with. This lasted 70 minutes and the questions consisted of material related to the job I was applying for and cultural fit questions.

    Following the phone interview, the next step was having an in person interview with members of the team. Before coming in I was asked to complete a small project that would take no longer than 3 hours that they could look over before I came into the office.

    The in person interview consisted of 4 sets of 1-1.5 hour meetings with differing members of the team and took most of the day. The first interview was a technical interview with 2 members of the team I would be working directly with. They asked me questions related to the language we code in, and had me do a whiteboard problem with them. Second was a lunch interview with 3 members of the team. This was a chance to see my cultural fit with the team and also gave them and myself a chance to ask questions to each other. Third was a coding challenge where I was given a task and a laptop and asked to code in front of the hiring manager and a fellow developer. Lastly was with a director and senior engineer asking architecture related questions, which included whiteboard drawing out a mock application.

    A week after the in person interview I received a call from the recruiter with an offer.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was contacted by a recruiter who set up the whole interview process for me, she was lovely! After that, I interviewed with a group of people that were in the department I was applying for. The entire interview was conducted over the phone, and they were all really good about not interrupting each other, keeping the interview on track and making sure all their questions got asked while leaving me room to ask my own questions at the end of the call. I felt really comfortable talking to everyone, and definitely felt like my answers were heard and understood completely.

    It was a little slow, they contacted me first and I answered immediately, but then they contacted me back again like 2 weeks after. The HR person was very nice and tried to help me in everything she could to speed up the process.

     In the end they "turned me down", since I was applying for a temporary job and the visa process would not payoff, so they told me I would get a chance for a longer term position in the future.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im November 2019 bei Blizzard Entertainment (Irvine, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online for backend server position. First phone call was standard HR phone call with recruiter. Second was call with lead/senior engineers about experience and standard C++/objectoriented questions. After that I completed a hackerrank challenge. Then onsite interview with a tour around their facility (extremely cool), system design, coding, lunch and culture fit interview. Questions were standard and not unnecessarily difficult like at other tech companies. It pretty much served as a real indicator for them if you have the experience that they are looking for or not. Heard a couple of business days later that they would not move forward with me.

    While I was very disappointed not to get the offer I was very appreciative of the team for being super friendly, very communicative throughout the process and being kind enough to explain things that I didn't know / help me get to the solution they were looking for as well as providing sufficient feedback on what I could improve on in the future as many companies don't provide any specific feedback and you are left wondering. They did show that they understand that interviewing is stressful for candidates and that they care to make it a great experience for them regardless of the outcome.

    Easily the best interviewing experience I have ever had with any company.
