    Intern Interview

    Interview

    There was an office I walked into and promptly seated. Then I was invited into a managers office where the interview began. He asked basic questions about business strategy and case studies. I gave him my advice on the game and the direction of the future gaming market. Pretty easy interview.

    Strategy Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jagex (Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    A telephone interview initiated the process. The call consisted of some technical assessment questions and the typical work history/skills discussions.

    Following the telephone interview was a slightly eclectic day on-site. Interviewed by members of multiple teams and asked (old) Google-esque psychoanalysis questions, etc.

    The process was very casual (fitting for the environment) and as such, relatively stress-free.

    Artist Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Jagex in March 2018.

    Interview

    Contacted a senior figure to inquire about a role. After an initially positive interaction the contact said they'd arrange for an art test to be sent to me ASAP. After a week of silence they contacted again to say they hadn't forgotten me, but for various reasons the art test was delayed. After several more weeks I contacted them again and they seemed surprised I still hadn't received an art test and assured me they'd get right on it. At the time of writing it's been 3 months without hearing anything.

    Friendly staff but bad organisation and communication.

    IT Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Jagex.

    Interview

    Application involved submitting my CV and writing a covering letter. First interview was a phone interview in which I was asked about my experience and motivation for applying.
    Following this I was invited to a face to face interview. Genuinely had a lot of fun at the interview, very relaxed and informal. I was asked standard interview questions, not competency questions.

    Then got shown around the building and met the rest of the team. All really nice people.
    Got a call the next day saying they won't be moving forward with my application, that they wanted someone with more experience.

    Still had a great time! It was worth going there just to see the offices and meet the staff.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Jagex (Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I am located in Newcastle, but had a very positive experience once my application was picked up by the recruitment team.

    I actually ended up doing a variety of technical exercises, one “take home project”, and another that involved answering some of the shelf Java questions.

    The recruitment invited me down to Cambridge at the expense of the company, and I spent a half day on site interviewing with a handful of different personnel.

    All interviews were super polite, great to talk with and the brief introduction to the team I would be working with was great.

    I went home and took a trip to Italy, whilst out there I’d heard that I received an offer, after some negotiation I had a very impressive offer but due to financial concerns within my family, we had to unfortunately turn it down.

    Should circumstances change, I would love to approach Jagex again, I had a thoroughly positive experience and had I accepted I have no doubt the experience would have been positive.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Jagex (Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I first sent my cv in June 2018, and just got an answer a month after. They sent me in July a test which was the 1st stage of the application process. I had to make the rest in 4 hours. There were 2 translation exercises and 3 more related to customer service. Then, one month after they invited me for an assessment day. I spent a day in the company, did 4 tests and then the interview. By the time I went for the interview I was already knackered, my brain was just exploding. There were 3 people interviewing me in a small room. They literally "bombed" me with so many questions. I think there was around 50 questions in total but most of them very similar. They said they would get back to me in 3 weeks but it's been over a month and no feedback so far, which is so disrespectful.
