    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Very rare that this level position is looked for outside the company since it would likely be a VP position in other companies. At this level expect the entire senior management team to interview you. Expect multiple rounds and expect to go up against national candidates from outside the industry.

    Interview Questions

    • Honestly it is a very straight forward interview process, in fact one might argue they need to be more diligent in their interviews. Do not worry too much about 'zinger' questions. There are no Google like questions or cases to solve. Expect "are you a gamer" but know that the answer does not need to be yes if you are functionally solid.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Responsible negotiation for senior positions though there are policies in place that will preclude wholesale "open checkbook" discussions.

    Production Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email around three months later that they wanted to set up a phone interview. This was on a Friday morning. The interaction was fast and an interview was scheduled for the following Monday afternoon. I received another email about fifteen minutes before the scheduled interview time telling me that another member of the hiring team had put out an offer to someone else without consulting the rest of the team and it was accepted over the weekend, so my interview was cancelled. Incredibly unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Hiring takes place after numerous phone calls with HR. Once interview is established, no one is prepared, many of the same questions and salary negotiations were long and drawn out.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    The HR guy told me right off the bat he was interviewing 7 other people for the same position that day, he would be asking questions & taking notes, taking those notes to his hiring manager, and following up early the week after to let me know if I would be moving forward.

    He essentially asked 3 things:

    1. Why are you leaving your company/why work at ours?
    2. Walk me through your resume - tell me why you're qualified.
    3. How much did your previous employer pay/how much do you want us to pay you?

    Game Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Ubisoft in June 2015.

    Interview

    I contacted on LinkedIn the manager of Ubisoft Osaka after he announced the studio was looking for Game Designers. After sending him my resume on his request, I got a Skype interview the same week with a Game Designer, a Programmer and a Producer. We spoke, in English and Japanese, about my past experiences and aspirations.

    One week later, I got a second interview, with the manager himself. The interview went smoothly, and we talked about the studio and its projects. However, I was not offered a position at this time because of my lack of ability in Japanese (JLPT 3 minimum), without excluding any future opportunity if I improve this weakness.
