Easy Interview


The process took 1 dayinterviewed at THQ (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2010.


THQ normally chooses to hire from the local art schools or through using a temporary staffing agency. All hires have some computer or media arts background along with an interest in video games but not necessarily experience in playing them. THQ does not immediately hire someone for permanent game testing positions, everyone starts off as a temp and receives training. As a temp as permanent positions become available a separate interview process is required for consideration. Everyone is very friendly and fun loving. You MUST have a sense of humor to work here and be able be a team player. Fun office wide activities and contests are always going on to participate in during free time. It is a fun generally laid back atmosphere but they do watch how much work you accomplish.
