    Software Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    It was really close to be a great interview, the main reason I didn't like the experience was because I didn't get a feedback. I mean, I loved the environment and the place and I want to know what I need to improve to go and try again. I'm still planning to apply, but I don't know what to improve to make it better next time.
    It was 2 interviews, 1 hour each.
    First interview with the directors. We spoke about the project and was more about soft skills and task management stuff, how you deal with problems and situations, etc.
    Second interview was technical with a lot of questions and a whiteboard.
    It was the best interview I've ever had and I felt like I did really great, but I they decided to move forward with someone else.
    People there are great and the environment made me feel like that's the place I want to work.

    Interview Questions

    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.

    Overall, it was kept low-pressure and conversational
