    Former Employee - Administrative/Facilities Manager in Novato, CA

    I worked at 2K Games full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed the day to day interactions with such a diverse group of people. No day ever mirrored the day before.

    Cons

    At the end of the day "business is business; nothing personal"; those are the words that linger in my ears when I was laid-off. And it's far from "not personal" when your lively-hood has been completely changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide true open door policy; more leadership training and have someone monitor the leader - clicks.

    Marketing Department Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at 2K Games.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted via a recruiter via email which led to a phone interview. We discussed my previous work experience and career goals. This lead to another phone interview, this time with members from the marketing department that I would be joining. Many of the same questions were asked, though they focused more on why one would choose to work at 2K versus any other game company. Then a third phone interview, this one with the head of the department. The one on one call had many questions about experience, management techniques, etc. Finally an in- person interview with the department and tangential department staff, this was less of an interview and more of an introduction to the team members, it was not overly formal and the last one on one was replaced with a lunch with many people from the team.

    Interview Questions
    • The position was not clearly defined and so questions ranged from typical to bizarre. There were many questions about the current games released by the publisher. Toughest question: Why work at 2K versus any other game company?   View Answer
