    Interview

    I met with the group of engineers I would be working with, my supervisor, and his immediate boss. I was shown the facilities by an hr person, which were very impressive. The campus is very spread out so make sure to get very detailed directions on where to report, otherwise you may end up being late.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at WMS Gaming (Waukegan, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The phone interview had to be rescheduled due to illness, but they never sent me a new interview date until I reminded them to do so. The actual interview was roughly 5 minutes long after I drove 3 hours to get there, and they never sent me an email regarding my being denied the position. I sent a follow up email and got no response. Completely unorganized and ridiculous process.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at WMS Gaming (Cedar Falls, IA).

    Interview

    Process took a lot longer than it should have due to so many levels of people who have to approve everything. The interview was laid-back with some simple technological questions.

    interviewed at WMS Gaming (Chicago, IL) in May 2013.

    The interview consisted of a number of behavioral type questions including greatest strengths and weaknesses. They were mainly concerned with creativity level and approach to analytical problems. Clearly they were looking for previous work experience in the gaming industry, or an industrial type setting. A high GPA (>3.0) was key for getting the initial interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at WMS Gaming (Chicago, IL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Got the hiring manager's contact from school project. First interview is with HR on site while visiting the company. Later on received a phone inter view with a panel of two. Questions are engineering questions, and the project I did before. Since it's a internship offer, I feel like it really depends on the hiring manager's preference so it could vary.

    Interview Questions

    • I had a little bit hard time when questioned about technical details about computer graphics, so definitely warm up yourselves before taking the phone.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation because it's an internship.
