    Former Employee - QA Tester in El Segundo, CA

    I worked at Konami as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere that familiarizes you with the software development process while keeping a working environment that eases someone fresh out of college into the working world.

    Cons

    Chances of retaining extended employment as a QA Tester are not guaranteed. Check with your supervisor how long your contract will last so that you can have another job lined up if it does not look like they will extend your contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront with QA contractors and let them know if their chances of acquiring an extended contract are low so that they can work lined up. Other than that it was a pleasure working with you all and I hope things are going well.

    Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  San Mateo, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Mateo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Konami in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was probably one of the fastest I have ever had. I sat down in front of two programmers and a producer and went down every point of my resume from games I had worked on in the past. Occasionally someone would ask me how I implemented X or Y for a feature, but otherwise it was just me talking. Within 30 minutes the interview was over.

    Interview Questions
    • Given a game X that would play out in a certain way, how would you make the class structure to make this game run.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Insultingly low offer for the Bay Area, especially for one that was going to move into the city. Among all the companies I have been to from SF to San Jose their office seemed to be the most dead and uninteresting.
