    CEO David Baszucki speaks to Press:Here about ROBLOX and the future of user generated gaming! http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIWkA

    Is ROBLOX the Next Minecraft?

    If you haven't heart of ROBLOX, you're not alone. Most of the users on the "clunky" gaming platform are 8 to 14, and its developers aren't much older, according to the startup. "I think the reason these clunky games are really interesting is that the next generation of games is based on how these things work," David Baszucki, chief executive of ROBLOX, told Press:Here.

    Pros

    You're surrounded by highly intelligent people, no matter where you work. There's an attitude of work hard, play hard. Hard work pays off here. A lot of heads down, hard at work during work hours, but people relax and have good time at social events and during catered lunches.

    Cons

    There are high expectations of everyone. You have to keep performing, and performing at a high rate. You can get burned out easily here if you're not up to it.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation for things more often. It doesn't have to be a big announcement at an all hands meeting, but recognize the hard work and small successes more often than you do.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Roblox in June 2015.

    Interview

    Short version: Very unorganized and unprofessional.

    Full version:
    First contacted by recruiter A via email for a general phone call; but since I was on vacation, I postponed the call for about a month.

    Once I got back, recruiter A scheduled a phone call for me with recruiter B. This recruiter B stood me up the first time, and the recruiter A had to schedule the second phone call.

    After the phone call with recruiter B, recruiter A checked back in and scheduled a technical phone screen for me with recruiter C (yes, this is the third recruiter, not someone that's in engineering in Roblox).

    The recruiter C stood me up twice this time, and I've never heard from them after that.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: how much did your previous company pay you?   Answer Question
    • Q: You are overpaid for your current position, what makes you think you worth that much (paraphrased by me)?   Answer Question
