Getting an Interview
Very Easy Interview
Game Designer Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Sony Online Entertainment in January 2012.
Interview Details – I knew a friend who worked there who basically got me the job. It was a done deal. Interview was rather unnecessary; Just a formality.
Interview Question – It almost seemed like they were asking me if I would be able to work here based on how poor the quality tools and games are. It was more-less exposing the flaws of the company as to not hire someone who they knew would quit after a month of finding it out for themselves. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was not much negotiation. I was given my first offer.
Game Designer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 2 days - interviewed at Sony Online Entertainment in January 2011.
Interview Details – The people were all very cordial and nice. The interview process was a little regimented and programmed. I felt like they were not open to real creativity and were more interested in filling an empty seat. While that may fit with what they are trying to achieve it did not suit my professional goals.
