    Runescape Content Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Jagex in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The pre-interview is handled entirely by Jagex's HR department through emails. The first step is submit your CV and if it passes a review you are asked to complete a timed, online test covering subjects such as pseudocode, game design and general attitude. Those who pass this test are invited to a full day trial at Jagex's Cambridge office. The trial is divided into 2 parts - a coding section and a design section, with interviews thrown in at various points along the course of the day.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions are standard interview questions probing the applicants strengths and weaknesses, nothing really tricky.   Answer Question

    Animator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Jagex.

    Interview Details

    A long wait followed by a somewhat unusual psudo-phone interview.
    A couple of months later after hearing nothing...
    Interview over 2 day practical test, using proprietary in-house software (this software has since been dropped for new projects). Several other applicants did not return after lunch of the first day or on the second morning due to the weirdness of the software.
    Interview its self was fairly standard - nothing hugely unexpected.

    The HR side of this was very sloppy, and the internal recruiter did not inspire confidence. Generally a poor experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Alot of questions about what I thought of the company, after working their for a few weeks the reasons for these became clear (see the reviews of this employer).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation over pay appears non-existent for development roles but stick to your guns, they have deep pockets and if they want you they will pay out.
    It is much easier to get money at this point than later on.
