    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Orlando, FL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and knew someone in the company who also helped me in getting noticed. I received a phone interview about a week or two later. The Phone interview was casual. The recruiter asked me some generic questions ("tell me about yourself") and explained some of the job details. After he and I were finished asking questions, he asked me what I would expect in pay. A week later, I receive another call from the recruiter asking for an in-person interview at the company with two seniors members. That interview was also very casual and they asked very few, non-technical questions. About two days later I received an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Orlando, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through the company website and within a month I got the interview call. The interview was a telephonic one. They asked me what all I had in my resume and it was kind of rapid fire. Some of the answers which I was saying to him was stopped and the interviewer continued to the next set of questions. He was just looking for key words and once I said those key words for any question he would just continue with the next question.The interview was short and it lasted for less than 30 min. Then in couple of days i was scheduled for another interview with the hiring manager. It was a behavioral type of interview. Then the next week i got the offer.

    Technical Director Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    The interview process was very organized and quickly implemented for each phase. I very much liked their process and questioning with all of the big wigs. The peer to peer interview with other technical directors was, let's say, interesting. In my opinion they could have been a little more organized and professional in their line of questioning, and the picture they painted of Tiburon was not favorable imo (which only confirmed stores I've heard from other former employees and recruiters). From the peer interview alone you could tell there were some big egos at Tiburon, but if you can navigate the politics, a potentially fun place to work.

    Cowboy coding at it's best, it's just a disorganized free for all of young coders working almost criminally long hours, hot shot egos, virtually no quality assurance or oversight, and lower pay compared to similar opportunities in the Orlando area. You HAVE to love gaming to put up with it, not have a life or family, and be prepared to burn yourself out of the place within a few years JUST so you can say you've worked at EA. Tiburon felt more like a career stepping stone than a place people call home for decades, which may or may not be what you're looking for.

    Every single person I've met that have worked at Tiburon, or have placed contractors there, all say the same things to me about it:
    - If you're looking for money, this isn't your destination
    - If you want to have a normal work schedule, look elsewhere. Expect to work crazy hours, and be a glorified technical slave during crunch times
    - QA, what's that? If you like a cowboy coding free for all with poor technical oversight, big egos, and last minute disorganized decision making... hey, you'll love this place. Most professionals, however, will not.

    Overall, I think the interview process was enjoyable and very easy. Compared to other places, where you are grilled technically and white boarded for up to 6 hours (yes, an entire day), this place is a breeze. But at the end of the day, you need to understand clearly what you're signing up for, and why you want to be there, otherwise you'll be like so many other EA employees... moving on.

    Interview Questions

    • I honestly didn't find any question they asked difficult, however, they did discuss some topics that didn't seem at all related to the position for some strange reason. Perhaps they were confused for which position I was actually interviewing for. If you have a handle on project management, quality assurance techniques, architectural software design patterns, and a love for gaming, you'll be fine.   Answer Question
