    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Big Fish Games (Seattle, WA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was a 30 minute phone call with someone from recruiting. Nothing unusual to report during this phase. I was then scheduled for an on site round of interviews with some of my potential coworkers.

    I arrive at reception, and the two people behind the desk ignored me until I spoke to them. Maybe they didn't see me standing in front of them, but it still seemed a bit odd. I was told that unfortunately, the person whom I would be reporting to wasn't in the office that day. But I still ended up interviewing with 4 people individually, for about a 30 minutes each. After that, a second recruiter spoke to me for about 5 minutes to recap. This person told me I should hear something by early next week.

    An hour later, the second recruiter sent me an email asking me to take a survey, rating my experience during the application and interview process. They informed me that the link to the survey was only valid for 24 hours. That means they wanted me to take the survey before I've found out if I'm hired. How can I rate the process, when it isn't over yet? Red flag.

    When the recruiter's quoted time frame (early next week) had passed, I wrote to them and asked for an update on my status, and never received a response. It's not a problem if they wanted to choose another person. But, to never respond after I was asked to take a survey, and spent that much time interviewing, is extremely unprofessional. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Big Fish Games.

    Interview

    The interview was pleasant, and questions weren't so hard. First, he told you about what you were gonna be doing for the position and asked if you had any questions regarding the information he just gave you. The rest of time was you talking mainly, he would step in to ask one or two questions, but no tricky questions, mainly just for clarification.

    Interview

    7 interview back to back with no warning, told to just pop in for a quick chat by recruiter. Interview where 30-45mins long watch no break in-between. Some questions where to big to even answer unless I had experience in the company and role. Would of really of liked feedback on interview questions. Never heard back . Also design challenge or brief to have a chance to showcase my designs, instead of just speak about them.

    Android Software SDK Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Big Fish Games.

    Interview

    First was a phone interview, then was a coding interview. I had a good experience during both of those things, as both people I interviewed with gave me positive feedback and were friendly. The reason I rate this experience as being negative overall is because when they rejected me they gave the reason of me not having enough experience. If they didn't feel I had enough experience then they never should have given me a single phone call much less a phone call and then a code interview. I feel I was used to give those 2 employees practice for interviewing actual candidates. This was possibly even done by big fish to try and get H1B1 visa candidates by saying there are no qualified Americans.

    Phone screen with Recruiter: simple weeding questions.
    Phone screen with BI Manager: Half soft skill questions, half technical SQL questions via a code sharing site.
    Interview: four or five 45-minute one-on-one interviews. All of them were focused on a different aspect of the job. Interpersonal questions, general analytical ability questions, specific technical/language questions.

    Product Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Big Fish Games (Oakland, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter reached out to me, and I had a standard phone screening with her. After that, I had a 30 minute phone call with their head of Product, where he asked me general questions about my experience.

    The onsite process was fantastic- their recruiter obviously put a lot of time into structuring the interviews. First, I met with head of Product, then two of his other PMs. Each of them had a specific problem they wanted me to talk to them about. They would present me with an issue, and then asked me to walk through my thought process, challenging me and asking questions along the way. They also had me have lunch with several other employees, who talked to me about culture and got to know me personally.

    The recruiter made sure I understood what was happening between each meeting, so I always felt like I knew who I was talking to.

    It seems like a great company, and I was really disappointed to not get an offer.
