    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gameloft (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied via LinkedIn for the Community Manager role, which I only noticed was posted 2 months earlier after I had applied. After such a long time, I wondered why the job had not been filled & taken down?

    I received an e-mail from HR asking me to complete a 4-page assignment, with a 2-day deadline...prior to even speaking to the company on the phone.

    Wanting the job badly, I completed the assignment against my better judgment. The assignment was very labour-intensive, and took me one night and one full day to complete.

    After I submitted the assignment, I never heard back from the HR person if it was received. I tried to connect via e-mail and by phone, but no reply.

    I finally made contact with the recruiter and was invited for a face-to-face with 3 team members. The interview was pleasant, but wait for the punch line...they were looking to hire within 6 months. That would mean had I applied when they initially posted the position, it would have taken 8 months until I was hired!

    About 3 weeks after my interview, they reposted the job on LinkedIn that I had been interviewed for. Not sure what they are actively recruiting for a job that they won't be hiring for for another 6 months. A head's up for other candidates.

    3D Animator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gameloft (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    After applying I was contacted by someone through HR saying they were interested in taking me to the next step within a week or so. I had to complete a test where you have to rig and animate a character in 2 weeks. All in 3DS Max (if you don't use 3DS Max I highly recommend you have a computer that can run it and you learn the basics because the studio uses only this. Especially the Biped system).

    After some miscommunication and struggling with an old computer I got the test sent in a bit later. Since then, I haven't heard back and followed up to more radio silence.

    During this time, the original job posting was taken down and replaced with something similar with a slight change.

    It seemed a bit unprofessional by the company to not receive a follow up email after the test or at least explaining to candidates what they could improve on. Especially from a company at a global scale . I hope that for any future or current applicants, they don't receive this type of treatment and that they will improve their policy.

    R&D Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Gameloft.

    Interview

    During the whole process, I didn't have the chance to talk to someone other than their HR representative.

    On the first contact, they asked me point blank how much I wanted to earn, without giving me a chance to know more about the job responsibilities. When I asked questions regarding the job and the position, the HR rep just told me I would have to wait to get a chance to talk to their developers. Their HR rep asked me lots of things that were clearly stated in my CV (they didn't even seem to have looked at it!).

    They then sent me a 12-page test (22 questions, most with subquestions, no multiple choices!) that I was supposed to hand in within 2,5 hours after downloading it. Granted, they explained that I was "not expected to finish the exam in time," but just reading the questions takes a long time!

    Obviously, I didn't get too far. To add insult to injury, they sent me a canned response in French (before that, the whole process was in English) that basically said "We're sorry you didn't make it. Don't bother knocking on our door again."

    Game Programmer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gameloft (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviews consisting of three hours each: A written exam and an in-person interview. The written exam had two sections, one hour of answering technical questions and two hours of writing code. The questions were mainly about game development and 3D graphics programming but nothing too advanced. The live coding question consisted of writing a simple C++ console application using MSVC. The tests were unsupervised and internet access was available for both sections.

    The in-person interview had two sections, one to meet with the HR person who asked you personal questions like what you know about the company, why you wanted to work there, etc. The second section was to meet with two developers who reviewed your test results and asked you questions about your technical background.
