    Software Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burnaby, BC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Burnaby, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Had a recruiter bring me a position at EA and presented me for it. The process was very quick, which may have been down to them being very desperate to fill this position.

    Started off with a ~30 minute phone interview with the manager. Mostly discussing technical background and soft skill type stuff as well as what the role involved. Seemed pretty much like just to check if I actually wanted this position and would be ok with what it entailed.

    Very quickly set up an in-person interview within the next couple days. It was scheduled to be about 4 hours long. Started off with a 2-hour long coding task to evaluate skill/knowledge with html/css/js. Had a short break while the 2 interviewers reviewed the task and then came back for about 45 minutes of technical and background questions.

    Was supposed to meet with the manager again for 30 minutes of in-person but this was cancelled as he was satisfied with just the phone conversation.

    Overall, fairly easy as long as you're keeping up with what current technologies and concepts are in the front-end world.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I got called in for 3 interviews, all with 2 people each in them. It really depends on the individuals. I had 2 amazing interviews, and the third one was really awful. The third interview was held by a man who had his arms crossed the entire time, and was very negative and abrupt. He reacted to every answer as if it was completely incorrect, and wanted me to fail. The other 2 interviews went extremely well, and the interviewers seemed to ask intelligent questions and were very friendly. They were all standard interview questions. Nothing super technical (depends on the job).

    Interview Questions

    • Can you recall a time when you were in disagreement with a superior, and how did you deal with it? How do you deal with conflict between co-workers in general?   1 Answer
