    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Gameloft.

    Interview Details

    Begin with a standard phone interview after applied online, asking why you interest in this program and some background in your resume, after the interview they send me online test with limited time (C++, 3D algorithms and OpenGL).

    After a few weeks they told me I passed the online test and arranged a Skype interview with their local developer and technical leader, and the interview questions are still very standard behavior questions and it took about one hour. But after a month later I got rejected.

    I think I didn't being well prepared for those questions because I thought it will a technical interview somehow, and they really want you fit in their position.

    Interview Questions
    • Some OpenGL optimization questions in the online test.   Answer Question
    • After these years you learned C++, what do you think can C++ bring to game development?   Answer Question

    Application Details

    interviewed at Gameloft in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the Concept Artist position in New Orleans, and 3 days later I received a friendly e-mail about setting up an interview date. The interviewer/recruiter was very professional, and the questions were pretty typical in my opinion. I immediately got the art test, and worked on it for a couple of weeks. The directions were clear and very descriptive. After I submitted it, I got an e-mail saying that they reviewed my test very carefully and their decision was to not move forward with me.

    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Gameloft in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    First applied on the Gameloft website back in late Fall of 2012. Heard back in late March of 2013. Had 4 phone/Skype interviews over a period of 2 months. After the 4th and final Skype interview I was flown out to San Francisco and put up in a hotel for the night. The in person interview was about 2.5 hours long and consisted of talking to the same 4 people I spoke with previously and also meeting other key members of the North American team in SF. These conversations talked about the role in more depth, how I would handle a variety of situations and what I thought I'd bring to the Community Manager role that makes me the right fit. Overall it was a great experience, everyone was very friendly, open and honest about their experiences with Gameloft and what to expect.

    If you are interviewed by Gameloft don't be overly worried if a phone call is very short. Two of my 4 phone calls/Skype calls were under 10 minutes, they are just very focused and get to the point! Answer to the best of your ability and you should be good!

    Gameplay Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Orleans, LA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Orleans, LA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Gameloft in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied on Gameloft's career site and was contacted within two weeks. After an HR interview with Gameloft New Orleans they determined I was "good to go" for a technical test, which I got emailed to me a week later. At this point I told them I was interested in graphics so I got the graphics test, and it was a doozy. I'm not a good test-taker but I did my best. It was four hours for about 100 questions, including some longer ones worth more points.

    They got back to me and said I wasn't moving on, but it was very cordial and friendly. I had no hard feelings.

    Imagine my surprise when I got a call a few months later saying that I was considered again! I was pleased that they remembered me. Because it was so close to the summer things moved along pretty quickly, and I got a technical interview in a few days. It was tough as well but I did better with it. It consisted of me talking to one guy about two or three open-ended questions and then what kind of work would be expected of me. I sensed that they were going to extend an offer at this point, so maybe they don't always go over the anticipated work.

    I was offered the position but sadly I couldn't take it. I was anticipating a housing stipend to help my poor intern self out but it never came. With Louisiana minimum wage at 7 an hour, it just was too expensive of a move. Everybody was wonderful and the company looks like a blast but, well, I guess these things just happen.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked by my technical interviewer about game design ideas, which is not my forte really. I think it was a good question to ask, but I wasn't ready for it.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The distance (New Jersey to New Orleans) with no housing stipend was too great.
