    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2015 bei Capital Games (Sacramento, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied to Capital Games through EA’s web site. A recruiter that worked for EA Mobile contacted me to setup a phone interview. My experience with this recruiter was good. He was nice and quick to respond to my emails.

    I then had a 20 minute phone interview with the Capital Games art director and they invited to do an in person interview at their studio in Sacramento. The interview was scheduled to be 4 and a half hours long and included around 13 people total.

    I don’t live in Sacramento, so I had to drive there from San Francisco. Once I got there I talked to the Capital Games recruiter for 15-20 minutes, then I had a 40 minute phone interview with their tech artist that worked remotely. Shortly after that a different person came in the room to tell me they’re ending the interview early because I don’t have enough programming experience.

    The people I talked to were nice, but overall it was a very frustrating experience because I spent half a day commuting to/from Sacramento and paid $45 for gas/tolls just to do a phone interview with someone in one of their remote offices and then leave. Capital Games should have a technical person conduct the initial phone interview for technical roles to avoid this kind of situation happening in the future.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    itial phone screen was with a recruiter at the parent company Electronic Arts. Basic questions about experience with systems, virtual system management and AWS.

    Second interview was with the hiring manager. A little more technical but not heavily so.

    Third interview was on site and consisted of four back-to-back one-on-one interviews. Team members, hiring manager and technical director. Some technical questions but mostly problem solving hypothetical situations and questions to determine what level of maturity I was at as an engineer.

    My overall sense of the studio that it's a positive place to work and that the technology and support processes are up-to-date or advanced. AWS knowledge is pretty critical. Work-life balance seems to be ok which was a concern of mine since EA has a reputation for overworking people. The studio is in a good location, work atmosphere seems fun and the people seem pretty likable and good at what they do.

    The one negative is that there was no follow-up. I emailed the following day thanking them and expressing my strong interest. 2 weeks later I hadn't heard anything so I enquired by email to the recruiter and one other. No response until I asked again almost a week later.

    The recruiter finally replied that I wasn't the fit they were looking for. That's fine but four hours is a pretty big investment of my time not to receive some sort of decision or feedback. I suspect that the recruiter being with EA instead of with the studio caused them to drop the ball.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im September 2017 bei Capital Games.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    It was a phone screen that lasted about 30 minutes. I was interviewed by two of the team leads. There were a lot of technical questions about their game's mechanics to see how familiar I was. Prior to the interview, I had to submit a screenshot of my progress in their game and answer some questions about my interest in video games. These questions were repeated during the phone screen.
    Throughout the interview, they were quite "clinical" and not very warm. I could tell the interviewers were very serious about what this job can be and were possibly tired of interviewing people. Be upbeat, but stay focused on their questions. Be specific as possible. They didn't seem responsive to humor at all. Two things that stood out as important to them was finding someone with a good personality fit and someone that is inherently competitive. If brought on, I don't believe there will be much hand-holding, so you have to be prepared to get up to speed on your own.
