I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Ubisoft (Morrisville, NC).
Applied online got a response in minutes. Had a phone interview the next day and a person to person interview a few days after that. Said I would know within a week if I got the job or if I didn't. Took two and a half weeks and I didn't get the job.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Ubisoft.
I received a phone interview for the Game Designer position that was available. The interview in general was very easy and laid back. The questions were basic and standard, from asking what projects I have worked on, to what my interests would be in the project and what skills can I bring onto the team.
- None honestly, they were all straight forward, and all expected questions for a design interview. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA) in June 2014.
Applied on Ubisoft website. First had a phone interview with university relations manager. Three weeks later went into office for in person interview. Was interviewed by the entire public relations team in five groups of two for half an hour each so I was there for two and a half hours. All pretty much asked the same questions. Got back to me two weeks later.
- What does public relations mean to you? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Ubisoft in April 2014.
HR was friendly and professional The requirements sounded like a perfect match for my skillset, so I applied. They answered, but sent an art-test. Unfortunanenly, it required a skillset which was clearly not listed in the requirements. Thus, it was a bit difficult. Anyways, not complaining. probably just a small communication issue - can happen with thousands of applicants and openings.
- art test deviated strongly from the requirements of the job title. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks – interviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA).
There were about 3 to 4 rounds of interviews meeting with several people above and at the same level to your applied position. Initially you communicate with a recruiter through email to coordinate a telephone interview. The phone interview starts with an extensive overview on how Ubisoft is structured then proceeds to your typical Q&A. Please make note the overview is a long-winded speech. If invited back you meet with HR and everyone else . It's mostly conversational mixed with Q&A as opposed to situational or behavorial. The people seemed nice, easy to speak with, and has worked there for a very long time. Average 5+ years. The crowd isn't diverse at all and it's a tight knitted group. You guys can do the math on this as some might approve but others might not. It'll be interesting to see the stats on diversity: gender, ethnicity, openly LGBT, and also income disparity at this company. From my memory, there was only one person of color in the office.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA) in February 2013.
I was initially impressed with how quickly I was contacted after applying. I applied online and received an email from a recruiter less than two weeks later, scheduling a phone interview on the next business day. The interview was a pretty standard first round interview - Why are you interested in this company and this position, tell me about your experience, strengths and weaknesses, etc. I was told there were four other candidates being interviewed, and that I would know if I moved forward by the end of the week. I did (what I perceived to be) very well and was confident that I would advance. I followed up with the recruiter four times over the next three weeks, hearing little other than that the decision was still with the hiring manager. After three weeks, I followed up again and was told there were other candidates with interests that better matched the position. After keeping me on the hook that long, I would have appreciated some more specific feedback.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA) in May 2010.
Applied online and received an email around three months later that they wanted to set up a phone interview. This was on a Friday morning. The interaction was fast and an interview was scheduled for the following Monday afternoon. I received another email about fifteen minutes before the scheduled interview time telling me that another member of the hiring team had put out an offer to someone else without consulting the rest of the team and it was accepted over the weekend, so my interview was cancelled. Incredibly unprofessional.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA) in May 2009.
The HR guy told me right off the bat he was interviewing 7 other people for the same position that day, he would be asking questions & taking notes, taking those notes to his hiring manager, and following up early the week after to let me know if I would be moving forward. He essentially asked 3 things: 1. Why are you leaving your company/why work at ours? 2. Walk me through your resume - tell me why you're qualified. 3. How much did your previous employer pay/how much do you want us to pay you?
- Walk me through your resume - tell me why you're qualified. 1 Answer
