Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT

Average Interview

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blizzard Entertainment (Salt Lake City, UT) in Feb 2018


I applied towards the end of the internship open application period in November of 2017. After the open period ended at the end of December, I received a screening email on February 14th of 2018. The initial email just had a few simple questions that seemed to determine whether or not I was still a qualified candidate for the internship, such as whether I planned on enrolling in another semester of college post-internship period, whether I was still available to move for the duration of the internship, and what my experience with Blizzard games and had been thus far (the position I was contacted about was within After responding to the email, I received a follow-up email from a specific recruiter about 24-48 hours later. This email detailed the date and time of my first two interviews, for the following week (the initial emails occurred towards the end of a work week). Both interviews were perfectly punctual and professional. Both of the interviewers were eloquent, asked relevant questions about my experience, my interest in the role and Blizzard as a whole. The first half of both interviews seemed more focused on getting to know me as a candidate, and then they transitioned into asking situational questions where they were looking for specific answers or experience to fill the need their specific teams had (each interview was from a different team). The first two interviews were on Monday and Tuesday, and late Wednesday evening, I received another email from my recruiter stating that a third interview had been requested. We scheduled for Thursday, the following day. The third interview went extremely well. The interviewer was just as well-spoken and thorough as the first two, but he was much more open and easy-to-read about how I was performing throughout the interview. The third interview contained more specific situational questions, though it did feel more like a conversation - something I'm not sure whether it was a product of the interviewer himself or the set up of the interview process overall. At the end, he explained that I did very well and would likely be hearing back soon. Monday of the following week, I received a call with my offer. Overall, it was an extremely pleasant experience. Both recruiters that assisted me were friendly, communicative, and informative. All three interviewers were extremely professional and at no point in time showed any bias or dismissive behaviors. In fact, after describing their roles and listening to my experience and answers, they all confirmed with me whether or not I was still interested in the role in question. Interns are rarely, if ever, brought to HQ to be interviewed in person, so I have no input on how that process works.

Blizzard Entertainment

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA

Negative Experience
Average Interview

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Blizzard Entertainment (Irvine, CA) in Aug 2017


Two phone interviews that I did felt very positive about but then they waited about 6 weeks to get back to me with feedback. This place is too elitist and incestuous. They hire from within their ranks 99% of the time. So the job postings to external candidates are really just placeholders while they get the internal candidate going. I will not interview here again even though I got another call to interview for another position.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA

Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Blizzard Entertainment (Irvine, CA) in Aug 2016


Contacted by a Blizzard Recruiter on an ancient resume for a position from years ago. I can say that yes, they really do hold on to them. 1) HR screen decision made to move forward about a week later 2) Hiring manager phone screen set up another week later. Decision made to move forward for an all day on-site. 3) Went in for an all day on-site the following week Total process was around 3 weeks Tips if you get selected for an onsite: This is considered a stress interview. Make no doubt about it, it's all day with various people, lunch with even more people, Q&A all day. The people I talked to were all very cool, casual conversation, and knowledgeable. Don't like your guard down with the casualness of it all. You are (of course) in a competition with the next guy in the door. Blizzard is known as a SW company. So if your background is in SW and applications, you should be good. Show you have the vision and drive to get projects going for the need of the group and greater good. If you're in HW or infrastructure, ask what what you'll be doing day in and day out. See what side of the house it's on. I got the feedback that I was mostly on the core network (somewhat true) and I needed more application side. My fault for not seeing that and highlighting more application stuff during the interviews Hope my experiance helps you land a job with Blizzard. It does seem like a great place to work. Good luck!

When should I follow up? I had a second round interview that was supposed to wrap up today. The round included 4 behavioral interviews with 4 members of the team over two days. Due to some technical difficulties, I could not get onto the call with the fourth interviewer and was told to reach out to the recruiter to reschedule. I reached out to the recruiter at around noon and he told me that he would connect with me shortly. It is now almost 6pm and I have not received an invite.

Recruiter reached out to me for a role, let's say role A, which is great, but I'm more interested in a different role, role B, within the organization. Should I be upfront and tell the recruiter in interested in B before discussing role A? Or should I pretend I'm interested in role A, and if it doesn't peak my interest, mention I also noticed they're hiring for role B and would like to know more about that role...?


Communications Lead

Almost failed to send the test assignment in time prior to my second round interview. Getting stressed that I might have already created a bad impression. How to calm down?
