Online Programmer Interview

Online Programmer
Montreal, QC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Gameloft.

Interview Details – I was contacted by email 2 weeks after sending in my application. They asked if I could take an online test in the field, then three days later I was sent a 3-hour test pertaining to the job I was applying for. The test itself was a bit lengthy and difficult if you weren't actually skilled for the job. I still haven't heard back!

Game Designer Interview

Game Designer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Gameloft in September 2012.

Interview Details – Hiring process went well. Did a test, they brought me in to talk. Typical quick interview.

Interview Question – I don't remember.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They offered 55k, I asked for 60, and they had to request 57k approval from Paris HQ. Seems weird that headqurters would have time approving a 3k difference and I've heard this story from other sources as well.

Senior 3D Animator Interview

Senior 3D Animator
Montreal, QC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Gameloft in December 2012.

Interview Details – Stage One: HR Recruiter responded to my application within 3 days and asked me to complete a technical test which consist of rigging a quadruped and a series of looped animation within 7 days.

Stage Two: Wait - The recruiter asked me to wait because it is coming to Christmas holidays and the art directors and producers will be away from work.

Well, fair enough but he NEVER replied after 1 month. I sent the recruiter an email only to get a response only 2 weeks later informing that the position had been filled. HOW UNPROFESSIONAL. At least correspond with me earlier if they decide to close the position and not keep me in suspense for a month. TERRIBLE.

Interview Question – Technical Animation Test. Applicants are required to complete RIGGING and ANIMATION problems. If you are not much of a rigger, you might have serious problem with this test.   Answer Question

Technical Game Analyst Interview

Technical Game Analyst
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Gameloft in January 2012.

Interview Details – Shortly after sending in my application, I was asked to come in for an interview. Before the interview, I was asked to perform an Aptitude Test. This involved giving me a copy of a game made by the company with bugs and errors put into it. I was to find these errors, and fill out the report provided. After this was completed, an interview was conducted with 2 persons: The HR representative and the Studio Technical Director. They asked me what kind of software I was familiar with, as well as what I knew about the company and if I had tried any of their games. After having finished this process, I was surprised to get a phone call the next day with an offer for a job.

Interview Question – The most unexpected question was "How many kilobytes are in a megabyte?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not do any sort of negotiation, since I was applying for an entry-level position with little experience to use as leverage.
