    Interview

    Everything was really professional. I was flown out to Irvine and they comped me in a nice hotel. They also give out lots of awesome swag! The process itself is very thorough, they put you through a gauntlet of interviews as well as a final project case study.

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Activision Blizzard (Torrance, CA).

    Interview

    Interview process was disorganized and can’t believe that one of the principal engineers was asking me technical questions i.e tech architecture of the project I led. Will never interview in this company ever!!!

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Activision Blizzard in August 2019.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me after applying through LinkedIn. They asked for me to select a time that works best for a phone interview, and to provide my cell phone number. After confirming through the site provided by the recruiter, I followed up via email as well to confirm my selected time frame. Time comes for my phone interview, I do not receive a call, so I call with a number I was provided with as well by the recruiter. I get the recruiters voicemail and leave a very pleasant message letting them know I’m available as scheduled. I do not receive a call. I follow up via email to check in on when I will receive a call back. Nothing back. Follow up at the end of the day asking if they wanted to reschedule. Once again, nothing back. Overall, I am completely shocked at the complete lack of professionalism I have experienced.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Activision Blizzard.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out for a screening on LinkedIn. It was a phone screen and he seemed super interested in me and asked questions on my joining date, salary expectation etc. Within a day, he set up an interview with the hiring manager. After the HM interview, the HM sent me a bunch of case questions to solve that focused on that role. I spent ~50 hours solving the case questions and wrote a blog article to outlining my research. The HM gave me no timeline for next steps but instead asked me to inform when I was ready for the next rounds. I informed the HM that I want to do the next round and he asked me to schedule the interview with the recruiter. The recruiter did not respond a few times even though he started the whole interview process. When he did respond, he asked me to send my availability for the interview. I sent immediately and after that I never heard from him. I followed up a few more times afterwards, but he completely ghosted me. He did not even inform me that they are not moving forward with me. It was an absolute worst experience as I spent nearly ~70 hours preparing for the interviews and countless hours waiting for them to get back. Utterly disrespectful to candidate's time. I lost all the respect for the company even though I am a big fan of their games.
