Very Easy Interview
Software Quality Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Electronic Arts in March 2011.
Interview Details – I answered an ad in the newspaper, by mailing my resume. I recieved a phone call, a sort of preliminary interview...to discuss the job and the pay. The actual interview was in a group setting, it was actually quite entertaining. EA is not a difficult company to get on with if you are beta testing or handling quality assurance, however they only hire through a staffing agency and only offer one year contracts.
Interview Question – Questions about your background. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Very laid back, the job is a take it or leave it, no negotiation on wage or benefits, etc.
Software Quality Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Electronic Arts in December 2011.
Interview Details – Consisted of 3 phone interviews, of which one was behavioral and remaining 2 were technical. I did not like the software quality engineering position but wanted an interview practice, so attended it. I was not offered an onsite interview, since I was not very interested in the position in the first place. The interviewers were cordial and work with you to get the answer they need.
