    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 1 Woche. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Insomniac Games.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online after inquiring at GDC and received a test almost immediately. The test required to program, in C++, a memory pool manager. From recollection, the test provided a small setup and requirements which entailed a char array that required manual malloc to store information to. It was necessary to resize the array and make sure that everything stayed allign. If allocation to the array was too big for one space, it needs to be resized or when deallocated shrunk. There was very specific requirements regarding byte size management and such.

    A collection of short answer questions about general programming knowledge was also attached.

    I submitted my best effort within a week, and was told my code did not pass their test harness well enough to move on. I'm not sure if my short answers were even looked at. I also was not able to get feedback.

    Pretty standard interview. My initial interview was with one of the Art Directors on Sunset Overdrive. We talked about my work, process, why I was interested in the company, etc. I later found out that I wasn't eligible for the position because I was a graduating student.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online with resume and cover letter. Was emailed a game design test. Questions were all over the board. A good number on Free-to-play monetization strategy questions, many on how to monetize single-player games. There was more open-ended tower defense game design question. They asked me to draw maps for the game, design pieces, and monetization strategies.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte eine Woche. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im März 2017 bei Insomniac Games.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was offered an interview for a game designer position and was very excited about the prospect of working at Insomniac Games. However, the interview was canceled a few days later. I felt that Insomniac handled the situation unprofessionally; if you offer an interview to a candidate that has worked hard to apply and to build their experience and credentials, I believe you owe it to the candidate to at least conduct the interview before rejecting them offhand. Overall, a very disappointing experience.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online, got a quick response. They sent me a test and said I had one week to finish it. It was a C++ game programming test requiring knowledge of numerical methods and 3d math. It took me at least 5 hours to finish, but I passed it.

    When they told me I passed, they asked me what days I was available for a phone interview. I gave them my availability, but HR never responded. I follow up a couple times and they never called me, eventually told me position was filled. I like this company but HR seems lame.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    A programming test was sent to me. The test is about writing a memory pool manager. The test has no mandatory time limit and I spent one day to finish it. After submitting it, I got to the next round which is a phone interview. In the interview I was asked a mathematical problem about linear algebra: Giving the positions of a plane and a point, how do you judge if the point is above of below the plane. I was not allowed to go on the internet for any reference. I didn't answer very well since I am an international student and was not familiar with English words about maths. Next day I received an email about declination.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I got a set of general questions and one programming test after i applied through their website. The general questions are mostly about the gaming industry, such as the difference between pc games and console games. There are also questions like how to program in a team setting, and the difference between assembly, c, c++, java, etc. The programming test is essentially implementing a memory manager(malloc, free, etc).

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • To implement a bug-free malloc is quite hard. I didn't have time to test it thoroughly so I failed this test.   Frage beantworten
