Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts in February 2015.

Interview

Online application, interviewed with phone. Asked a few questions about game design. They were pretty easy and really depended on your personality. They told me to wait for further decision. I thought I messed up because I was very nervous.

    Game Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in July 2007.

    Interview

    I applied through their online job application website, and through two connections; someone who work for them for years a long time ago, and someone who was working for them at the time.

    About two weeks later, they contacted me to schedule an interview for their mobile department.

    Everything went well, they scheduled a second interview with their console team the following week.

    During that interview, they asked which position I would like more -- as they had two different positions, one in mobile, one in console -- and I answered truthfully.

    I relocated and accepted their offer.

    Overall, I found them pretty fast and efficient, although I was not expecting the 2nd interview. Maybe I applied for both positions through their online job application website but I can't remember.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did not try to negotiate due to my lack of game development experience back then. Now I know better, a lot of websites give tips and I should have told them a range.

    A) I'm sure you are offering competitive salaries according to the industry's standards.

    B) I would accept anything between [x to y].

    I applied through their portal. I was contacted in about 20 days by the HR, asking me to fix a phone interview. After the phone interview I got an in person interview at the studios.
