    Senior Communications Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at 2K (Novato, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Four phone interviews followed by an all-day on-site with the 2K communications team.

    Very accessible and informative interviews with the entire team. Everyone I talked to was very smart, personable, and asked questions based on a behavioral interview style. It's important that you know and are passionate about gaming.

    I wasn't offered the job because of a basic qualification that should have (in my opinion) been vetted in the first or second phone interview. Spent a lot of time and effort preparing for interviews, so it was a pretty big time suck that could've been prevented pretty early on.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at 2K (Novato, CA).

    Interview

    This review is for Visual Concepts, the 2K studio that works on NBA 2K.
    The communication with the recruiter went well, she was very nice and helpful.
    On the interview day, the Art Directors didn't seem to be ready to interview me, 3 of them who introduced themselves as art directors were all looking down at my resume. Awkward silent moment to start.
    Everyone is busy, but if you are scheduling time and expect candidates to be prepared, don't you think the interviewers should be prepared too? An interview is a 2-way interview, you also need to convince the candidates to want to work with you. This was not the case at all. I had to show my work but none of the work was presented to me.
    I am thankful I got to have the interview and meet the directors.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at 2K (Novato, CA).

    Interview

    Process took 5 weeks. 1 week after applying for a phone interview, 1 week after for an in-person interview, and lastly 3 weeks to get a response. I thought I did well during the interview actually. I thought I meshed well with the team, and I really liked the environment. I guess they thought otherwise. That's ok, on to the next one.

    Contract UI Artist to Senior UI Artist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at 2K (Novato, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Got contacted by recruiter and went through interviewing process that spanned over 2 months. Interviewed with recruiter, art director, and UI art lead over the phone for a contract position. All went fine. The position changes through the interview process to full time.

    Show up for onsite interview and first person wasn't in the office that day. Next had a longer interview with UI lead and engineer that ended up in small talk due to no more real questions regarding the position. Lastly spent time with art director and got the gist of what duties would be. Figure that things went well, look forward to hearing back from them.

    Week later contact HR recruiter since no word was given and was told that the duties of the position changed from something art heavy to a more technical need.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at 2K (San Francisco, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by 3rd party recruiter. A day later (these guys move fast, recruiter says) got email from 2K Executive VP to set up a call. The phone call was set up within a day.

    The VP was 15 minutes late to call for the pre-arranged phone screen appointment.

    After briefly exchanging pleasantries and intros, and each spending a couple minutes about "tell me what you do", the VP clearly expressed disinterest and we mutually ended the call.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing specific, just the usual "tell me about yourself".   Answer Question
