I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Rockstar Games.

Interview Details – I applied online through a job seeking portal. The next day I was contacted and ask to complete a technical design test in 24 hours. The technical part of the test was exceedingly easy for anyone with even a basic knowledge of game programming, while the design part was a lot more subjective. A few days after I completed the test and sent it back, with a request for feedback on the test regardless of whether I passed, I was contacted again and told that they thought I "would not make a good fit". I e-mailed them back and thanked them and again asked for feedback, but never got a response.

Interview Question – The most difficult question on the test was to write a simple Finite State Machine for a door control AI.   View Answer

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Rockstar Games in December 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and they responded by e-mail the very next day. Sent a skills test that I had 24 hours to complete. The test was fairly easy, very basic programming questions, it took two hours at most and I was confident in my answers. I sent it back and received a generic rejection the same day. When I asked if they had any feedback, I got no response. A little annoyed that I spent the time on their test for seemingly no reason.

Interview Question – Use pseudocode to write a state machine that opens/closes a door based on whether it's locked or not.   Answer Question
