I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Epic Games

Interview

Got contacted by an initial screener, it was a Zoom interview. Easy questions: Tell me about yourself and why do you want to work for us. Interview lasted about 15 minutes, very nice and conversational. Here is the important detail: The camera was off for both me and the nice lady. I moved to the second round of interviews, this time the camera was on for the interviewer, so I had to turn mine on (courtesy). Her face when she saw me... was a poem, she just couldn't hide the mixed surprise with disgust when she looked at me (and yes, I was on interview attire). I don't know if it was implicit bias, but from that moment on, her questions were the kind you can only answer if you are already working from inside the studio. Needless to say, I could only answer with more questions: What is your capacity? who are your subject matter experts? what is my influential scope? etcetera. I am a project manager and advanced scrum master, this is the first time I felt like my knowledge, experience and personality had little to do with the interview decision. My advice, keep your camera off. Implicit bias runs deep in the game industry (just look at the studio photos and try to find diversity).

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about yourself? Why Epic? How would you organized our schedule? What are the most important qualities of a Game Producer?

Interview

Had a take home assignment that took about 6 hours. Then had a 15 minute chat with the recruiter to tell more more about the internship and give me a chance to ask questions. Later had a casual interview with members of the team about my experiences. Overall the entire process was pleasant and I felt that Epic Games valued my time. They placed a lot of importance on the personality of the interviewee.

Interview

The interview process was pretty straightforward. First, I had a 30 min call with the HR for screening and it went well. The next interview was with the UX Lead and another designer. They asked about my previous job and other behavioral questions. They talked about the responsibilities and goals of the designer position. It went well but I never heard back from them.

I interviewed at Epic Games

Interview

It was a pretty simple interview process. Basic questions like how would you test this, why do you want to work here? The negative experience stemmed from the HR recruiter that I worked with. I had a phone screen and a two person panel interview. Each interview was pushed an hour before each meeting and made me feel as if I had never been a priority.
