    Content Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Orlando, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was very skeptical about EA after reading reviews how they seem to lead people on in an unprofessional way, never contacting again or acting as if the position never existed. Shortly after applying I was contacted to set up time for a phone call. The HR Rep was calm, polite, and explained she would be typing out my answers so she wouldn't be responding to my answers much. She asked about myself and experience. Asked typical stress questions, what environments have I been in before. She went through a questionnaire. This was a contract position and she was honest about how that would affect the process, pay, etc. The exact campaign this position related to was explained in detail. She said the reporting manager would actually be in my area and would contact me but never did.

    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.

    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.
