    Like getting run over by a drunk driver and then stabbed by a thug!

    White-board tech interview: I aced!
    Written test: I aced!
    Upper mgt. tech and personality Interviews: I felt very good about!

    The process was generally amiable with many rounds and requirements placed on the candidate (me). I believe this is NOT a quality employer who respects your time, knowledge, and professionalism but, IMO, an exploitative employer looking for SW newbs to wring them out for everything they have. They totally wasted my time and , in the end, made an arbitrary hiring decision.
    Take note of the statistics for how few offers are extended in glassdoor interviews.
    Obviously, I am not happy with Rockstar for this.

    Advice: Don't waste your time with Rockstar. Don't apply, and blow them off. They will do it to you!

    (If they respond they will probably say something like, "We are sorry about your experience .... We are highly selective ... " and other such patronizations.)

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • E.g., this questions was asked more than once: Can you handle stress / crunch time ("I am often under stress here, so much that I woke up and threw-up!" [no lie!])?

      Also, Classic OO / C++ questions: inheritance, structure, factoring, bit-shifting, algorithms, etc. No problems here.   1 Antwort

    I came as a referral and was contacted within a week. The interview process had two rounds. A short 20 minute phone interview and a four hour onsite interview. The interviews were split between talking about my experience and the industry in general. I thought it went well but as I received no offer, obviously not.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im August 2014 bei Rockstar Games (New York, NY (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Took 3 weeks total. First interview was over the phone. The lead was late so the recruiter rescheduled. He was nice, imformative, and I didn't feel pressured. I asked for a critique even and he said theres nothing wrong and he liked my work and that I was qualified. A week later, had a second interview with 2 directors. They too were both late so the recruiter had to reschedule again. This time it was over a fuzzy conference line and I had a hard time hearing them. They seemed stressed. One didnt talk much but tried to be funny when actually he was insulting about why I hadnt been working in 2 years and gave sarcastic remarks making fun of people being laid off. Whatever dude. The other guy was flat out rude and tainted the air with negativity after I exuded positive praise about their most recent successful project and in reply he said, "What? Its terrible! I see everything wrong with what we made. I don't see anything great about it" Wow. Ok. So that is how you regard your team? Excuse me while I go throw up. That would be the response I'd get if I were to work there which doesnt show great leadership. Thanks, but no thanks. Maybe all the rumors ARE true then.

    A week later, the recruiter emailed me saying they already chose another candidate that is more qualified for the position. Normal denial response. The recruiter was nice at least.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • So tell us a little about yourself, why did you choose Rockstar, and what initially led you to want to work here, and why you think you can make an impact?   Frage beantworten
    • So...your past project was in....2012...so it's been...what ...2 years since you haven't found work? Why not? Why did your last project only last a year? Did the leads just walk in one day and say, "Everyone get out!" Hahaha.

      In my mind I was thinking "...not...funny..."   Frage beantworten

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 4 Tage. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Rockstar Games (Boston, MA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied online through a job seeking portal. The next day I was contacted and ask to complete a technical design test in 24 hours. The technical part of the test was exceedingly easy for anyone with even a basic knowledge of game programming, while the design part was a lot more subjective. A few days after I completed the test and sent it back, with a request for feedback on the test regardless of whether I passed, I was contacted again and told that they thought I "would not make a good fit". I e-mailed them back and thanked them and again asked for feedback, but never got a response.

    • The most difficult question on the test was to write a simple Finite State Machine for a door control AI.   1 Antwort

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Pretty standard. Kicked them a resume, got a design test, then a phone interview. The phone interview was relatively quick, just running down the resume and making sure I wasn't a complete fraud essentially.

    After that was an on-site interview, which had a design and a tech section on a whiteboard. Also pretty standard. The whole thing lasted maybe three hours.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • All the technical stuff was psuedocode, and most of the problems were gameplay related, programming interactions that pretty directly impacted gameplay.   Frage beantworten
