    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NCSOFT (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Their recruiter found me via LinkedIn and gave me a call. After speaking for a short period of time I stated I was interested and I believe we set up a time for an in-person team interview and I came in for about a 3hr long interview (i.e. typical portfolio review and hours of talking to the team) and afterwords I left. On my way out of the building I got a call with an offer and accepted. Pretty simple.

    Negotiation

    I told them what I wanted and they said, "okay".

    Producer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NCSOFT (Orange, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of an initial 20 minute call with the HR Recruiter. A few days later a phone interview was setup with the Sr. Producer. This second phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and consisted of the standard questions you'd expect from an interview.

    For example:
    Do you play NCSoft titles? Do you play competitive titles of ours?
    What is your Producer Methodology?
    Why do you want to work at NCSoft?
    What is a standard day in the life of you at your current position?

    Both interviewers did a great job explaining what NCSoft is about, what the direction of the company currently is and the expectations and responsibilities of the Producer at this company.

    I found both interviewers very easy to talk to and forthcoming with answers to the various questions I had. Unfortunately, the stage 2 phone interview was the last for me, more than likely due to my inexperience working on MMOs and lack of knowledge of NCSoft products. However, I found the experience to be a solid, professional one. The fact that they took a second to provide me a clear resolution, that I was not moving on to the next round of interviews, is much appreciated.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from HR to discuss the job, the studio, and my interest in coming in for an on-site interview. I was able to do the onsite interview just days after the initial phone call. The onsite consisted of lunch with the team, and multiple 30-45 min interviews with different disciplines on the team. Everyone was very friendly, so it made it for a more comfortable interview process.

    Product Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NCSOFT.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted for phone screen shortly after. The recruiter was very monotone probably one of the most awkward phone screens I've had with lots of silent moments and long pauses. The position has been open for several months without anyone being hired which makes you wonder if it is the low pay they are offering for a PMM position $100k or is the company not as great as we think it is for a gaming company.
