    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Glu (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Brief, and there was no test. Met with members of the team I would be working with. 3-4 hours. I felt the group was made of excellent individuals who I could trust. The project also seemed interesting.

    Interview Questions

    • The only important question was "What excited me about games". Every other question was pretty standard - my experiences, how I would solve problems, etc.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Glu (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was thrilled with the ease and level of professionalsism of the Glu interview process. I had originally submitted my application to a different position but was kindly turned around by the recruiter to suggest a different position more aligned with my qualifications. The interviews followed a 3 step process: phone screening, on-site, and final video call. Everyone on the panel was prompt for their interviews, kind, and well versed to explain their role and the needs for his role. This positive experience and understanding of impactful work lead me to accept an offer. I'm glad I did!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Glu.

    Interview

    The Glu interview was a mix of 1-on-1 meetings, group interviews, and problem solving. Discussions were friendly and enjoyable, and the overall process was very smooth. I genuinely liked everyone I met.

    The problem solving portion consisted of monetization design discussions and some brief, on-the-spot analysis work.

    Discussions about Glu mostly centered around the strengths of that particular studio, their history, and their outlook in the coming year.

    Discussions on my experience were broad, with conversations on what I've pioneered in the past, ownership and successes, design philosophy, and data philosophy.

    Interview Questions

    • I was shown an exhibit related to a particular monetization feature that was in design, and I was asked to share logic on how I would progress/complete that design.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glu (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I came in and the coordinator met me up front, she was very nice to me. I was brought around the office and was able to see where each department was located. I saw a lot of the posters of the games they have published. I was offered a snack but didn't not take one because it would have been odd to eat during an interview.

    I was able to meet with a few people where they all asked my background so i kept repeating the background to each. Everyone seemed very cool and had a pretty good interview experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glu (San Mateo, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn and got a response maybe a little more than a week later. It was weird because I applied to LinkedIn using my resume, but I was still asked to provide a resume. Anyway, after the initial phone screening, I was invited to the studio for another interview around seven people (first two, then one, then another two, and then two again) -- I don't know if it was appropriate to have that many people interview me since this was a lot of carry over, but I'm assuming they were just feeling the vibes to see if I would fit in the with the team since that's really important in the industry. I eventually got another e-mail from the recruiter saying the decision of bringing me on was unanimous.

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Glu (San Francisco, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiting coordinator to schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager. After that they reached out to me again, and I went for an onsite interview. The process was fairly quick. Onsite I had 4 20-30 minute interviews with 4 different team members. One of the members just spent the entire time asking me if I had any questions and asking me if I was interviewing with other companies and such.

    The atmosphere onsite was a little uncomfortable. The onsite process was pretty unstructured. I waited a long time in the waiting area because the room they booked for interviews was overbooked, and there didn't seem like there was much coordinator or communication between the team members who were interviewing me.
