Bewerbung

Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 7 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im März 2015 bei Goodgame Studios.

Vorstellungsgespräch

Week 0: Applied through their company website for lead game designer role.

Week 1: Given an online activated design test. This test runs for 8 hours non-stop and will more or less take that amount of time to complete. You'll need a full day to do it. You're given a week to give it back to them.

Week 3: E-mail Told that a restructuring was happening within the studio and told to wait.

Week 4: Got a response asking for an interview to be lined up in 1 1/2 weeks.

Week 5 1/2: 1 hour long Interview over Skype. 4 people on their end. 1 HR rep, 2 producers and 1 designer. Will predominately ask monetisation and free-to-play focused questions. Referenced my resume and not the design test.

Week 7 1/2: Given a rejection e-mail. Prying for further feedback indicated they had more experienced candidates on the table for the role.

Overall thoughts:
Good:
- Studio is polite and well mannered. HR in particular was well communicated and kept in touch when asked.
- The design test is stressful but well made. Will test your abilities to write detailed documentation and think of ideas under time pressure.
- Gave general feedback when asked. Although don't expect any specifics in relation to your application or interview.

Bad:
- The process took far too long to come to a rejection decision. More so when considering the next bad point:
- It was apparent during the interview that the producer that was in charge of the project being hired for was more or less uninterested in the interview and playing on his phone for the majority of the time. The vibe was given that while process and procedure was being followed for applicants, the producer probably had his candidate already decided and that my interview was just due diligence.

Summary:
- Expect the process to take a while. 2-3 months more then likely.
- Expect for process to follow a lot of procedure and time gaps.
- You might be part of a bureaucratic process. You might not be. This shouldn't discourage you from applying. Just understand the nature of hiring in these large companies.
