    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waukegan, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at WMS Gaming in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview had to be rescheduled due to illness, but they never sent me a new interview date until I reminded them to do so. The actual interview was roughly 5 minutes long after I drove 3 hours to get there, and they never sent me an email regarding my being denied the position. I sent a follow up email and got no response. Completely unorganized and ridiculous process.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at WMS Gaming in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    The first contact was by a talent recruiter, who coordinates the interviews. He was also the first person to interview me. His interview was just getting to know me. Also, he did give me a heads up on what to expect in future interviews.

    The phone interview was a technical one, done by an engineer and a manager. It consisted mainly of C++ questions (what is [C++ Term]? What is the difference between [this term] and [this term]). The talent recruiter requested a debriefing afterwards.

    Some time after the phone interview, I was contacted for an in person interview. That consisted of a tour hosted by the talent recruiter, who then gave advice about the next interviews. Then there were three sets of half hour 2:1 interviews.

    *The first pair asked technical questions and about previous experience.
    *The second pair asked to design something on a whiteboard (to see how I think) and about previous experience.
    *The third pair mainly asked about previous experience.

    The in person interview lasted for two hours. Everyone I have spoken with were nice. The overall tone was very conversational and there was never a single instance when it seemed like an inquisition.

    I was contacted one last time by the talent recruiter saying that no offer was to be made, along with some notes gathered from the interviewers. It was still a positive experience.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at WMS Gaming in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied via the company website and was contacted by telephone by the recruiter. The interview was scheduled for two days later. The phone interview only lasted about 10 minutes, with the recruiter taking up most of that time detailing the position. She only asked a few questions, seemed rushed, and ended the interview. I felt I had many more questions that went unanswered. Ultimately, I did not receive another call about the position.
