    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.

    Software Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at International Game Technology.

    Interview Details

    Hiring from the outside was easy. I had one interview and was immediately hired the next day, even though there was a holiday weekend coming up and they said I probably would not know until after the holiday weekend.
    Being interviewed as a current employee sucks. I've been through dozens of interviews. Usually there is an initial interview, then a follow-up interview, and sometimes a third interview. Most of the time it is all for show, as most of the managers I interviewed with already had someone in mind that they were going to promote, but they need to "go through the motions" per HR rules. One manager consistently refused to give me an interview for a supervisor position, instead setting up "meetings" with me to tell me why I was not good enough to be a supervisor. I applied four times in five years for the job, every time it became open, and each time it was a different reason why I was not qualified. Every time I made note of the reason and worked on those reasons to make myself qualified for the next time the opportunity came around....and each time there was a new "reason". I actually had to train one of the people that was hired for the supervisor position at one point. Bottom line, once you are in IGT, if you don't know anyone or don't suck up, you won't go anywhere. Hard work, consistency, perfect attendance, good ideas for improving IGT, these things don't matter. In five years I worked my way from a bottom feeder to a "lead" position and was constantly told how the managers could sleep at night knowing I was "running the ship" - but I wasn't good enough for a supervisor position, even though I had previous supervisor experience and had demonstrated excellent teamwork and motivation skills. What matters is who you know, who you sleep with, who you go drinking with.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reno, NV
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reno, NV
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at International Game Technology in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for several positions with this company and have barely received the courtesy of a "thanks but no thanks" email. With auto-respond the norm these days, I fail to see why companies can't send some kind of acknowledgement. I did get one interview, but I believe the position was already filled internally, and they were going through the motions.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected thing about the interview was the two people interviewing me lifted the questions verbatim from the Yahoo Project Manager interview questions! Seriously, word for word. I was stunned.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at International Game Technology in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a staffing company which was very professional in their approach which actually got me interested in applying at IGT. A technical phone interview was then scheduled within a couple of weeks with the pertaining project manager and technical architect. I was asked questions only about core java, but the questions were apt for evaluate the clarity of fundamental concepts. Interview lasted for half an hour. I was called the next day to schedule a F2F interview which was a nice experience. I was interviewed by a panel of 3. Although the questions were not that easy I was impressed with the tech architect who was very knowledgeable and articulate.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at International Game Technology in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Worked with a recruiter who got me a phone interview with one manager for a position I wasn't really interested in but that one recommended me to another who had a position more suitable for my skill set. The questions asked by the first manager were mostly technical. The second manager I spoke to on the phone asked mostly personality questions. This was followed by an in person technical interview with a group of 3 employees, followed by a face to face with the manager. Each session lasted around an hour.
