I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at International Game Technology in January 2012.
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.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at International Game Technology in April 2012.
Interview Details – A person from HR contacts me to set up an on site interview. Did not mention there would be a group interview. On the way to the interview room, one guy led me through a maze of cubicles to get to an empty room where I had to wait for the others to get there. There was a group of 6 software developers and managers who interviewed me. They asked pretty basic questions on probability. I did not get my degree in computer science and so I wasn't able to answer those questions regarding product assurance, but I would imagine someone who majored in it could easily answer those questions. When it was my turn to ask questions, I got the feeling nobody in the room really enjoyed working there. Overall the interviews process took 1-2 hours
Interview Question – What is the probability of rolling two die summing to 6? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at International Game Technology in February 2011.
Interview Details –
Pretty standard interview process. Interviewed with 3-4 employees ranging from co-workers to superiors over two sessions. Nothing out of the ordinary. Typical "why do you want to work here" and answering questions about specific skill sets and similar previous work I'd done.
Two wierd things happened after that, though. 1. They asked for previous work product. I said I didn't feel comfortable furnishing work product from another company and they just said "oh don't worry about it, we're not going to use it against them [the other companies]. I said that I'd be happy to complete an assignment for them or something along those lines but they really wanted work product. 2. On what I thought was going to be my last round of interviews I interviewed with someone who was working their first day at the company and who told me "no one that I interviewed with is here anymore so I'm not entirely sure what we're supposed to be talking about".
I never heard back from them after that.
Interview Question – Tell us why you're a good fit for this position. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 months - interviewed at International Game Technology in May 2011.
Interview Details – The description of the job (responsibilities, requirements, territory, customer base, etc.) changed many times during the process. This made it difficult as it was impossible to know at any given time just exactly what you were interviewing for. They seemed confused.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at International Game Technology in March 2011.
Interview Details –
The IGT interview team is awful. They are unfocused and a few times pointed to things irrelevant to the conversation to deliberately distract you.
They ask really lame questions like "what are your favorite and least favorite classes when you were in school" and "What do you like and not like about the profession you are in"
The employees also argue with one another during the interview and are rude to one another and criticize each other.
They also ask vague questions, give you assurances that you are hired on the spot, only to reject you later on.
I would highly recommend NOT working for them.
Reason for Declining –
IGT is a dinosaur. They had a monopoly on the market and have been too fat, dumb and happy and have watched their market share erode. Employees are miserable wretches because of this and Patti Hart is a clone of Carol Bartz at Yahoo (ironically enough they both serve on each others' boards).
I would avoid working for this company until their transformation is complete, its complete chaos there right now.
I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at International Game Technology in February 2013.
Interview Details – Three separate interviews with management and Analysts I'd be working with. Was hired by IGT & worked there over eleven years before resigning.
Interview Question – Pretty laid-back, with no unexpected questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Flat rate w/no negotiation.
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at International Game Technology in April 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.
Interview Question – All questions were from core java and were expected. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I did not need to negotiate as I was offered a compensation package completely based upon industry standard and position offered and not on my previous compensation package.
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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.
Interview Question – What are your flaws? Really?? How are you supposed to answer that? View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiation what so ever. Take it or leave it.
