Vorstellungsgespräch

In the past I've avoided applying at Epic games due to many horror stories from people in my network. In early September of last year though I happened to met someone in leadership at the company who upon hearing about my background began encouraging me to apply for an open management role for which they thought I'd be a great fit. When I mentioned the horror stories I've heard this leader assured me that the company had turned a new leaf. Since I was considering a change I took a look at the job posting that evening and since it was a strong match I decided to apply. Two months later, in mid-November, I got an email from an Epic Recruiter wanting to do a phone call. We scheduled for the week after Thanksgiving. Less than an hour before the scheduled time the recruiter emailed me saying that the company was freezing any hiring until the new year. I asked when I could expect to hear back and was assured the recruiter would contact me in the first full week of the new year. The first full week of the new year came and went with no word from the recruiter so I sent them an email. This was now four months from the time I submitted my original application. The recruiter responded the following week with a vague mention of a delay but they assured me they would reach out again by the upcoming Friday to schedule a call. That Friday came and went along with another full week with no word so once again I sent a followup. The recruiter took another week to respond at which point they said the company was cancelling the position but that if or when it ever opened up again I'd be among the first to know. That makes nearly five months of getting bounced around for nothing. Two months later, now seven months from my application date, I got an email from a different recruiter at Epic wanting to talk. I saw on the website that the management role was relisted so naturally I figured this was the position they wanted to talk about. We scheduled a call and this time they actually followed through only instead of talking about the management role they wanted to talk about a lower level developer position. When I mentioned that I was already a manager and had only applied for the management position the recruiter said that the listed manager and developer roles were the same. Apparently Epic sometimes posts a single role at multiple levels to cast a wide net then determines who to hire as they go. At best that's misleading and indecisive and at worst it's a bait and switch. I'll also add that the recruiter wasn't friendly at all and while they pressed hard for very specific answers to their questions they refused to answer any questions I asked in return. After asking for my desired salary for example I gave a range but they insisted I had to give a specific number so I did. When I then asked what the budget was for the role they said that information was confidential and wouldn't even tell me if we were in the same ballpark. I did well enough though to move to the second round which was a call with the hiring manager. This person was clearly full of themselves and half the interview was spent listening to them brag. Much like the recruiter they also didn't answer any of my questions. When I asked for example how they as a manager ensured that their teams weren't getting burned out they gave a very HR-approved response that team members are responsible for their own hours. When I pressed for more they kept repeating the same line. Two weeks after this call I was asked to attend a panel with some engineers in the company. These people were very nice and actually did answer a few questions that I had though I could tell from their answers that burnout and churn are still major problems at Epic. A week after this call I was asked to do yet another interview and was also told that I would have to complete a coding exercise. The email I received stated that the exercise should only take an hour but after opening the assignment and reading other interview reviews on Glassdoor it was clear that there was no way this homework could be finished in less than 4-8 hours. I emailed the recruiter to see if they could share any details on compensation or the prospects of this role being management instead of a lowball but they refused to provide any clarity. At that point I decided to drop out. As soon as I sent my rejection email the recruiter emailed me back and tried calling me asking why I would turn down the role and telling me that I was doing so good. I nicely explained that I didn't want to waste anyone's time interviewing for a position that isn't at the right level or right pay scale for me. The recruiter had a bit of an attitude and seemed perplexed that anyone would dare turn down Epic but I knew it was the right decision. After spending nearly eight months from my original application date getting jerked around I think it's clear that the Epic of today is no better than the horror stories.

A technical coding interview with outside resources allowed and sent back in in a word document when completed. This was after applying to the position on their website. They were accommodating for my reasons for responding later than I would have liked.

Got contacted by an initial screener, it was a Zoom interview. Easy questions: Tell me about yourself and why do you want to work for us. Interview lasted about 15 minutes, very nice and conversational. Here is the important detail: The camera was off for both me and the nice lady. I moved to the second round of interviews, this time the camera was on for the interviewer, so I had to turn mine on (courtesy). Her face when she saw me... was a poem, she just couldn't hide the mixed surprise with disgust when she looked at me (and yes, I was on interview attire). I don't know if it was implicit bias, but from that moment on, her questions were the kind you can only answer if you are already working from inside the studio. Needless to say, I could only answer with more questions: What is your capacity? who are your subject matter experts? what is my influential scope? etcetera. I am a project manager and advanced scrum master, this is the first time I felt like my knowledge, experience and personality had little to do with the interview decision. My advice, keep your camera off. Implicit bias runs deep in the game industry (just look at the studio photos and try to find diversity).

Very smooth, I had two interviews, one with the recruiter and one with the team. I heard from the recruiter who basically vetted if I could do the job then the meeting with the team was more about if I would be a fit. The interview process took about three weeks.

Had a take home assignment that took about 6 hours. Then had a 15 minute chat with the recruiter to tell more more about the internship and give me a chance to ask questions. Later had a casual interview with members of the team about my experiences. Overall the entire process was pleasant and I felt that Epic Games valued my time. They placed a lot of importance on the personality of the interviewee.

I applied for a position through a referral. I immediately connected with the HR who was super nice. I had a great fit for the position since I was already doing the same for another company. Had 5 online interviews. 4 went great, however, the last one was one of the worst experiences I have ever had on an interview. Interviewer arrived super late, spoke for 15 min, lectured me that all I knew about the position was wrong, and then started looking at his/her cellphone for the rest of the interview. At one point I almost decided to withdraw my application on the spot. My guess is that the company was not aligned in the position and he/she was just trying to ditch me to later send me a rejection. Complete waste of my time.

Was interviewed in multiple rounds. A recruiter at first, then a member of the team, and then a long series of interviews with many more team members. Was very expedient and there was great communication all around.
