    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Zynga (Bangalore (India)) in April 2015.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Zynga (Bangalore (India)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Employee Referrals work with Zynga India. After waiting for a long time, I got an interview call. There was a copy test before that which tested content writing. Be imaginative with your answers. Don't bore the reader with safe answers. Interview itself was fun. Spoke about games. When it came to money, I asked for a figure you want confidently. Zynga cares about talent and will compensate you well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Zynga (Bangalore (India)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview involves solving a case given by Zynga and 4 1 on 1 interviews. It is silly that out of all these interviews, 1 interviewer's personal disliking can reject a candidate. The interviewer can give you additional assignments to check if you can write specs or not. I personally found it annpying because it is only a time waste and they are not open to accept suggestions.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I had 5 interviews at Zynga to be hired as a product manager from industry. 3 of the interviews were with product mangers at Zynga and the remaining with senior management at the company.

    The interviews with the product managers were focused entirely on specific games -- breaking down core mechanics, monetization and feature sets. Each lasted 30-40 minutes.

    The interviews with the senior management were broader and encompassed a range of topics around the games industry overall.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Zynga (Bangalore (India)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The company came to our University for hiring. I had 2 interviews overall. The first interview consisted of mostly simple algorithmic questions. In the second interview, I was asked about designing a game in which players will predict scores for upcoming cricket games and the game will score the player based on the result. I answered that it could be done by using a structure somewhat like a segment tree in which right guesses for initial matches are awarded less than those for the later ones(semi finals,etc).
