    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 5 Tage. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2014 bei Naughty Dog (Santa Monica, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Naughty Dog had been advertising for multiple positions for nearly a year. My impression is that they are either very picky or are using their postings to perpetually troll for new recruits. Either way, despite my many years experience, I was asked to perform a "technical interview" as my first interview. They had a Junior Engineer call me and basically give me a pop quiz over the phone on subject matter and minutiae that I have rarely had a practical use for nor did it overlap with the requirements for the job I thought I was interviewing for. At best, my experience with them was cold and confusing. At worst, I would consider them incompetent and generally unable to truly assess the abilities of those they interview.

    I applied online, and then they sent an animation test within a day (which I was very excited about). The animation test was not easy- it was long enough that they knew I couldn't get to a polish stage, so I had to push as quickly as I could to get in the basics. A couple days after I sent my animation test back, I got an email asking for a phone interview for the next day. The phone interview covered my resume and my animation test; they asked for my own critique on my animation test, and what I would finish or improve given more time. It was pretty straightforward and I appreciated their timeliness.

    • They asked me to describe how I got to where I am today; essentially they wanted to hear me tell the story of what was on my resume.   1 Antwort

    Went well, first interview and went in for a second interview. The first interview was over the phone with a recruiter and quick-fire questions, the second interview is in person and longer (roughly 30-45 minutes).

    Emailed to setup a technical phone interview 2 days after being called.

    An hour before beginning, I got a phone call from them to remind me. It threw me into a bit of a panic at first and though I had timezones confused, it was unexpected.

    Hour later, I got the interviewer phone call. He immediately jumped into technical questions, really fast, back to back for about 15-30 minutes.

    I froze during some of the questions. Really badly on the EASIEST questions. I nailed the harder ones, but in my opinion (and I think they agreed), if you can't get the easy ones right it doesn't matter. It wasn't that I didn't know them - I definitely knew the answers any other time you could ask me, but I just babbled like a goof without thinking. Worst performance in an interview ever, and I'm not sure why I had such an issue that day. Still haunts me at nights how rediculous I probably sounded.

    The harder questions are the vector math questions. They expect you to know how to do vector math on the spot, or at least describe how to do some common operations and game tricks. There are some surprisingly obvious/easy questions in regards to general programming, but if you're like me and sometimes speak off the top of you're head like a goofball having a bad day, these questions will burn you.

    Got an email back the following week saying they decided to move on.

    The interview was very hard. The first question was -> what is 2^4 and I'm like WTF. All questions were related to vector and algebra math. They even mocked me by saying "please look at your notes and answer from there" .. they knew I had my notes on me. WTF again. Very hard interview. Good luck!

    Well first of all, awesome interview process, straight forward, to the point no BS.
    I applied online, after one of our college alumni told about the opening, got a call next day to setup an interview. I selected a date 2 weeks ahead and recruiter was fine with it.

    First round
    They said it could last upto an hour, this one took only about 20 mins, the interviewer called an jumped directly to questions, pretty basic questions about vector math and some basic questions about C++ and inheritance. Every programmer can pass this first round super easy. I got a call half an hour after the interview telling me that I passed the interview.
    And I scheduled the next one 2 weeks after that, now the scary part of this next round was that it was with Jason Gregory himself.

    Second Round
    This lasted for about 1 hours 15 mins, some of the questions were repeated from first round, but this one went about 45 mins into vector math. You need to know each and every application of cross and dot product, thoroughly. Next half an hour was programming part, this was basic inheritance to pretty low level programming questions related to cache and memory allocation. I couldnt answer those questions properly and for vector math Jason helped me multiple times, and according to him, I should have been able to breeze through those questions.
    Will definitely apply again next year.

    They sent out a test edit(albeit filled with errors).
    They responded really quickly and setup a phone call and then a relaxed phone call lead to a very intense in-person interview. During my in-person interview I was impressed by half the team and discouraged by the other half. While on the tour of their studio I saw my resume and website on the computers for a few of the guys that would later interview me. Thought it was rather late in the game for them to just now be reviewing my stuff but whatever. The interview related a lot to my test which was rather awhile ago at this point. I think they produce great quality work here however I think this place suffers from production hell. They tried to sell me on the idea that "we encourage overtime" as if that's a selling point? If you're good at your job you shouldn't stay let just to prove your worth; you should be able to finish your work in 8 hour day.

    Got a phone call from HR to set up a first round technical phone interview, saying I would only need a paper and a pen. During the phone interview, the interviewer was clearly rushing to finish as fast as possible. He dove into questions right away without much of an introduction. The HR recruiter estimated the call to last between 30-60 minutes. It lasted 15 minutes, since there was no pause and he was rushing for the answers. Overall it left me with a negative impression of this company, since they clearly wanted to get the interviews done as fast as possible.

    I got another call from HR saying I passed the first round. She didn't sound happy and it was clear she didn't want to be bothered to schedule another interview. She said the same thing as before, "The interview will range from 45min-1hr. Have a paper and pen". When I got the second phone call, the interviewer again dove right into the questions. This was probably the worst interview I've had to date. After answering a few questions, I got stuck on a question about 3D math. The interviewer was clearly frustrated that I didn't know the answer, and tried to get me to go in the right direction. I could tell he was getting more impatient and I tried to guess how to approach it. After about a minute he abruptly interrupted and said "All right, that's all the questions I have for you". Keep in mind that this was only 8 minutes into the interview, so apparently he was so annoyed that I couldn't answer one question that he didn't want to waste his breath to ask me any other questions. Afterwards he hung up without even saying 'bye', so I was just left shocked that he was only willing to give me 8 unfriendly minutes of his time.

    Overall, worst phone interviews I've had. I don't think I would ever recommend applying to this company, since the employees I've talked to have attitude issues and are extremely impatient. Good luck to anyone who still wants to work here, I'll put questions below since I definitely will not be applying again to this company. I would highly recommend reading others' reviews of this company since they appear to be behave very unprofessionally.
