    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Riot Games.

    Interview

    Unprofessional and occasionally disrespectful of candidate time/experience. Multiple times I've set interview meetings over a week in advance and less than 30 minutes before, I received a calendar update for another time slot. I did not get an email explaining why or asking for what other times work, just the assumption that my schedule and work day was not as important as the recruiter or interviewer's convenience.

    Most questions were read off a list. Despite going so hard on looking for the right cultural fit, there was little to no personality during a majority of my interviews. I didn't get a feel for what kind of people or attitude the teams were trying to cultivate, or even the character or attitudes of Rioters individually.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Riot Games (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2020.

    Interview

    LinkedIn post under the recruiting managers, advertising anyone that meet the qualifications to add them and reach out with any questions. Reach out, no response. Tried following up since I assumed they accepted my request because they’re interested - still nothing. A little bit disheartening and certainly eye opening, often hear about recruiters ghosting candidates but it hits a little closer to home as someone else in the TA profession

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Riot Games (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2020.

    Interview

    First was a call from HR, then they sent me a HackerRank link with a test which asked some 2 Python questions and 2 SQL questions. The first question was fairly simple, the 2nd was only slightly trickier. The Python portion was very basic.

    Next was a call with the manager. It was more informal, he had me walk through a case study along the lines of "A non-expert at Riot asks you what they can do to use Big Data to improve their product". This was alright, but I felt like my interviewer did not prepare well enough to administer the interview. There were several times when he had to pause and rephrase questions that were either confusingly worded or did not get at the intended concept. In other words, I'd answer the question and he would realize that, while it was a correct answer, it wasn't the direction he wanted.

    They had me take a hackerrank test. Unfortunately, I didn't make it past that stage. The hackerrank itself wasn't too bad, I just kinda flubbed it on the last question.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Riot Games (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online and did an easy hackerrank challenge about building a game. Had a phone screen with a recruiter about the position, interests, and past experiences.

    The whole process was alright until the recruiter asked if I had any competing deadlines/offers. I let them know in hopes of speeding up the process, but they seemed insulted and I was rejected shortly thereafter. Overall, it caught me off-guard and seemed unprofessional.
