    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    20 minute phone interview, asking about work experience, personality traits, and games that you play in your free time (you better have a nice list before going to the interview). They said they were going to schedule a technical interview, but they chose not to go along with our university, and cancelled all their interviews with students. First interview was not difficult at all though.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts in October 2016.

    Interview

    I completed the initial phone interview with a Talent Acquisition rep. It was scheduled for 30 minutes but only lasted about 20mins. The questions coming from the recruiter were standard screening interview and half the time was spent with me asking her questions. It felt a bit too short to really get an initial impression but, as I didn't get a follow up interview then maybe it was enough for them to decide.

    Front-end Team Lead Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an EA recruiter to check if I would be interested in the role. I've decided to move forward with the process. After the HR phone interview, I was told I will hear shortly what is the next step (if any). After few weeks and multiple emails on my part, I was invited for an on-site interview. Initially was told I will be interviewed by the manager and be given a code task, later on top of that it was also added that the entire team will be interviewing me.
    When I finally did meet the interviewer, after a short introduction, we basically jumped right away to the coding task and was asked if I brought my own laptop (which was never mentioned to me). The task itself was mostly HTML and CSS with little to no JS (it would be possible to get away without writing a single line of it actually).
    Interviewer raised few flags on the state of the development which I am not comfortable sharing due to the signed NDA. While the campus certainly is impressive, during my interaction I did not get a sense of a strong engineering culture which is something that is very important for me.
    Ultimately, they were not satisfied with my solution of the task and decided not to move forward with the process. I will not be seeking a position at EA in the future.

    Production Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred by an internal employee, I applied for the job and in 2 days they called me back for an interview. I went for an interview and they wanted me to start as soon as possible. Seeing that I wanted to get into the industry I quit my job with no notice and started at EA a week later. They were not very flexible with my salary but I decided that it was still worth it. The interview process was a really easy and low key, we chatted casually about my previous work and life experience.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter first contacts you to do the initial phone screening, if that goes well and additional phone call is scheduled with the hiring manager to determine if you'd be a good candidate for the role. After that has happened, the recruiter will reach out to you again to find a full day in your schedule for an on site interview. You meet several panels of interviewers throughout the day and are provided with a team member to have lunch with in the cafeteria. Depending on the level of seniority of the role, you'll be required to put together a presentation beforehand.
