    I worked at Nintendo of America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Positive Outlook
    Positive Outlook


    Everyone loves the product. There is true passion behind the company.


    Career advancement is slow. Some processes are outdated and inefficient. People don't leave the company so new ways of thinking are rarely implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward talent. Get rid of dead weight on teams. Too many people get comfortable at Nintendo and stop trying.

    User Experience Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redmond, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nintendo of America (Redmond, WA).


    1 phone screen, 1 in-person interview, relatively straight-forward, but not as systematic/planned as you would expect from other tech companies. The role title is completely misleading as it is a support/PM role (Not a role that one from the UX industry would expect to be). The interviewer said I'll hear back and asked me to wait, but next thing, I got a template reply in a few weeks saying the position is closed. The recruiter in contact didn't call nor send any personal email. This is rude as interviewees invested the time to come meet with you. I'm left with a bad impression of the company and can't imagine who would want to work there.
