    The interview process generally involved an at-home, timed, written test evaluating basic literacy and critical thinking skills. Following that, at least one live, on-site interview took place featuring standard Q&A. That interview potentially featured a trans-Atlantic video conference.

    Interview Questions

    2D Artist Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Savannah, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Savannah, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at CCP in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Get email from HR to set up the time for interview. Call made by HR and artist. Mainly talked by the artist. Talk about your former experience and career plan for the future. Also talked about my interest and how does it match with the position and the industry. They introduced what would be specific job for the internship, how long it gonna last, but I probably missed some information like it's not a full-time one, or maybe they didn't say it.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    No salary. Only compensation. And the job is not full time. So spending a lot of money for relocating for a part-time internship seems not worthy enough.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at CCP in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Firstly, you've got to play the game. Knowing the product and its mechanics is crucial; you won't get a call-back without it. Being a volunteer for a time gives you bonus points towards a call-back, as does attending FanFest and being sociable with the employees, and the employees do love to party during FanFest. The interview is less an interview and more an explanation of what would be required of you; if you don't put yourself forward and show off what you know and what you're capable of, you won't be called back afterwards. For CS/Game Master positions, there's an English test (it's written by an Icelander, though, so some of the test itself is wrong). After that, either you get a call back or they'll email you to say you're not what they're looking for. CCP is one of the few companies that WILL let you know you haven't made the cut, and the longer they take to respond, the better the chance you'll be hired.

    Interview Questions
    • Not really a question, more of a warning: Customer service for CCP is intended to be a shadow compared to the rest of the company. Even at events like FanFest, GMs are mysterious and might have different names on their tags. Social media, I was told, shouldn't connect you to the company at all.   Answer Question

    Web Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at CCP.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process consisted of several Skype interviews, mostly to assess personality fit with teams and some technical experience. Very general stuff. I was then given a practical skills test later on. This was again fairly straightforward, mostly just to make sure you know what you're doing. The test took a couple hours to complete and afterward we moved onto employment negotiations and relocation discussions.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing in particular stands out during the interview process, but definitely do your research before relocating to one of the various offices.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reykjavík (Iceland)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CCP in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Answered job offer posted on Linkedin. Got contacted a couple of days later for a HR interview. I got the feeling that first interview was mainly to remind candidates that the position was based in Iceland, a small, cold island in the middle of the Atlantic :-).
    Next step was interview with the department boss, with field-related questions on tools and processes.
    Following step was a written test.
    Then, interview with the team.
    And, last interview with Division boss and someone from HR.

    Overall, everybody was professional and cordial. All questions were relevant, whether related to my CV and career or practices and tools of the trade.

    The main issue, i was told, about my application was that was overqualified (true and mentioned at every step of the process :-p), and though i was in the last round of candidates, I did not get an offer.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at CCP in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications was decent, the planning was well thought out, and there was only one interview. The actual interview would have been better if the Lync video conferencing application had a lite version that could be downloaded beforehand without waiting for the exact time of the interview to download. Otherwise the interview itself was carried in a respectful and challenging manner.
