    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nintendo of America (Redwood City, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with an internal recruiter. Then another phone call with the hiring manager and lastly being invited to the office to meet and interview with the team. Overall process was simple and they were very fast at responding. However, after final 1:1 interviews there was never any input even after a follow-up email asking about the status. Left a bad taste that after going to meet with them and spending 4 hours in their office the HR team cannot even be bothered with a "thanks but no thanks" email letting me know that they are not interested. Very disappointing end to what seemed like a great company and working environment.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing particular or out of the ordinary. Everyone seemed intent on wanting to know "why Nintendo"?   Answer Question
