    Senior Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Activision Blizzard (Santa Monica, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied via a referral and the process took about 10 weeks - to be fair it fell during the holiday season so the time line was actually quite quick considering the seniority level and the fact that this was a newly created role for the team. I found all my interviewers to be well prepared with some really insightful questions. They wanted to know more than what was on the resume and I was impressed by how diverse their backgrounds were as well. My recruiter Richard and coordinator Victor were amazing. They went out of their way to make sure I was well prepared for my meetings and were quick to gather my impressions of the conversations and address any questions or concerns. I felt valued and like part of the family in the best way. The little things matter to me and they took care of every need before I knew I had them!

    Overall such a great experience. Activision Biizzard is the best kept secret in tech, more people should be talking about this place!

    The salary was lower than I asked, but they offered a sign-in bonus and performance based bonuses, that usually you never get, as much of your work depends on factors beyond your control. After the interview I waited for almost two months before I was contacted again for an offer.

    QA Tester Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Activision Blizzard (Santa Monica, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    After being approved for their interview process, me and maybe 40 other people all went into a screening process where we were tested on what we would do in certain situations. Along with an actual video game testing test (heh), where the interviewees had to write down what they found wrong with the video game. The test is not difficult. If you've played some games over the years, you generally know how things are supposed to look like. There are many obvious glitches and imperfections on the test they give you.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Activision Blizzard (Eden Prairie, MN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was set up around 2 weeks after I applied. They host job interviews in large groups and I was one of around 30-40 people to interview for around 15 -20 available positions. Frankly the process felt high pressure because of the volume of applicants. One week after the interview I received a job offer. They were mostly interested in finding out if interviewees weren't just gamers looking to get paid at an easy job.
