    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at International Game Technology in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went through five interviews, which included an initial phone screening through their HR group in Las Vegas. After approximately 2.5 weeks of interviewing with the company, I was told by the HR representative that an offer was to be extended to me, benefit paperwork was emailed to me and a potential start date and salary amount was negotiated. I was told that the offer had missed the deadline for submission the first week but would be initiated the next week. When I called the HR representative the next week to follow up on the status of the offer, I was told the position had been cancelled.

    Negotiation Details

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at International Game Technology.

    Interview Details

    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.

    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

    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.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate a salary 10% higher than their initial offer. I declined their first two offers on the basis of being too low.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at International Game Technology in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied via linkedin and received a phone call 3 days later to set up a phone interview (which is weird, because I live 15 minutes from the facility). Interviewer was 15 minutes late calling, and had a very thick English accent. He was very personable, and acknowledged all my answers. Seems like a nice enough guy, but because of his accent, his questions were hard to understand.
