    Pros

    Volition is full of talented and friendly people. You’ll be given the opportunity to learn, try new things and contribute. Access to management is easy and discussions are encouraged. The studio offers lots of perks including a flexible work environment. Champaign itself is a very livable college town. The size is manageable, it’s inexpensive and there’s plenty to do.

    Cons

    It’s the only game in town…literally. Champaign is small, so those looking for a town with a lot of game developers and big city energy will be disappointed. Since Volition is a small company, there’s not a lot of room to move up, although structure and culture changes have made a difference.

    Advice to Management

    The studio feels like it's still in transition, but keep at it. You're on a good path.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Volition (Champaign, IL).

    Interview

    Job posting on their company website, hiring for temp gig for 1-2 years. Submitted resume and cover letter, got a response asking to write answers to a questionnaire- things like briefly review a game and talk about its strengths and weaknesses, how do you approach challenges, how much do you game, how would you troubleshoot a technical issue. Called back to set up interview, met with two QA Supervisors; pretty straight-forward conversation about previous experience and interests. Played a buggy build of an old project while they watched, and was expected to call-out bugs as they came up.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were sealed in this room, with no form of communication with the outside, how would you attempt to get out?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They said they couldn't pay more than their flat starting rate for temp testers.
