    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Average interview. The interviewer is very friendly and the interview process is rather educational. I had a screening interview in the campus. I would recommend reviewing data structure before the interview. HR would also ask behavioral questions after the tech interview. They get a long technical question in just the first round.

    one phone screening interview, then on campus interview. The problem is not difficult. It includes some white board coding and design problems. But the attitude of some interviewer is very bad!

    Software Engineer III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Electronic Arts in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Can't really speak to most of the process. I was contacted by an in-house recruiter via LinkedIn. I replied, but he did not get back in touch for over a week. He said something about his LinkedIn messages not showing up in his email. Anyway, after a brief introductory phone call, we decided to proceed. I had two technical phone interviews scheduled which were to include an online programming exercise. However, the EA engineer scheduled to do the interview was a no-show both times. I decided if that was any indication of how they run the business, I wasn't really interested.

    Interview Questions
    • I never got to the point of being asked questions since the interviewer was a no-show.   Answer Question

    Applied in Jan. Was interviewed a month and a half after. Received an email for interview set-up and there was an on sight interview. I was supposed to be interviewed by 2 people but only 1 showed up. The person who interviewed me kept on yawning while I was explaining my previous work (which was rude and caught me off guard).

    Mobile Software Engineer Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Electronic Arts in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and HR reached me to schedule an phone interview after three weeks. The first interview went on quite well. The hiring manager first asked about some questions about iOS technology, which are quite simple. Then he assigned a coding problem. It was the first technical interview that I took, so it took some time for me to get used to it. Anyway, it was not a hard problem, and I think I passed it.

    One day later, I got the call from the HR to schedule the second round of phone interview. The second interview was not a pleasant experience though. The hiring manager was not guiding, and in the whole process, he kept asking 'Are your happy with your code?' and was not patient enough to listen to my explanation of my code.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Electronic Arts.

    Interview Details

    One short phone interview, one in-person interview. On-site interview was fairly long and detailed, mostly asking for elaboration of items on my resume. I have many years of experience in the industry, and the general feel of the office was good. Open spaces, professional yet casual, personal decorations seemed to be encouraged.
