    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at International Game Technology.

    Interview

    I had one friendly interview with a few software engineers from the department that was hiring. They asked me about my working style, had me spot errors in a bit of code and asked me a few programming questions. Later HR called to offer me a position. After that I just had to qualify for a gaming card.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at International Game Technology.

    Interview

    They flew me out to interview and I had four interviews in one day. They were pretty typical questions for the engineering field; given these problems, how would you solve them; how do you do this task with these limitations.

    Interview Questions

    • There were also a couple OOP terms that I had forgotten the definition of, though I could demonstrate that I understood the concept of proper OOP, so that helped.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Interview took about 1 hour in a room with 4-5 individuals from the team you would prospectively be working with. Some were managers others were members on the team that had openings for interviews that day. Interview questions were not hard, some basic questions about SQL, testing, etc. Most questions were behavioral asking how well you worked in a team, what your weaknesses are, etc.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at International Game Technology (Reno, NV).

    Interview

    Overall very smooth. HR is very effective there and follows up with your questions. You have to go through a screening online and then "IF" your resume is forwarded to the Manager (recruiting makes that decision) they schedule the appointments. I am not aware of a confirmation if you are not selected for the position.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your flaws? Really?? How are you supposed to answer that?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation what so ever. Take it or leave it.

    Software Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at International Game Technology.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly standard for corporate environments. I submitted my resume, was contacted to schedule a phone interview which included a brief technical screening process, and roughly a week later I was asked to come into the work place for a formal interview. The interview material was precisely what you would expect if you do any research on engineering interviews or have interviewed for a position as a Software Engineer in the past. Nothing beats being grilled with technical questions with nothing to aid you but a white board and dry erase marker. The interview questions covered everything from how you work with others, what you would do in a given situation, and how you would solve a specific technical problem. The team of interviewers were mostly encouraging and clearly indicated that they were more interested in hearing your thought process to solving a problem than arriving at the final answer correctly.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't honestly remember the specifics, but there seems to be a propensity for at least one good logic question or puzzle to see how you think and work through difficult problems.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at International Game Technology (Reno, NV) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Fast paced interview covering a variety technical topic. They key to getting to this point will be networking. The HR aspect of hiring here is broken so you have to get to someone who can get your resume in front of a hiring manager.
