    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Playa Vista, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online and a recruiter emailed me the next day. I had a brief phone interview with the recruiter and he scheduled me for another phone interview with the hiring manager. After a brief 30 min phone interview with the hiring manager, I was scheduled to come in for an in person. I came in 2 weeks later (due to holidays) and met with the hiring manager, another manager, vp, 2 analysts, and the recruiter. Process took about 4 hours. I felt the interview went well. Everyone was nice and very engaged. I felt confident about my answers. Did all the usual follow up procedures and NEVER heard back.

    QA Technical Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Playa Vista, CA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Took 2-3 weeks for initial contact after application,
    my first interview was with QA Director over the phone and was told technical background could not be verified so I was offered contract QA testing position instead, at that point my call was transferred to a QA Project manager and QA Project Lead,

    was called a week later for a in person interview with QA leadership team

    almost got charged $20 due to bad information on where to park, didn't end up having to pay it,

    i was met in the lobby by a contract hire representative, who led me to a HR recruiter, who then led me to the QA Leadership team, a QA Project Manager and two QA Project Leads

    interview was informal and short, and was then given a short tour to kill time while waiting for the recruiter to come and interview me, which only took 45 seconds, literally.
