    Interview

    Was late/forgot about the interview, and had to reschedule the interview with me for a later date. Ended up sitting at my computer waiting for a google hangout call for 30 minutes or so.

    Interview

    After Online Assessment a recruiter called me. A short culture-fit phone interview. He asked me about what games I am playing and other stuffs about games. No tech questions. Maybe they only what to hire LOL players...

    Interview

    The interview process is long and tedious. Questions are easy brainteasers and mini case studies similar to Google's. Lot's of questions about what you would do if you had the job. They seemed to not be interested in my previous and current experience and were more concerned with my ideas and solutions for their business without providing any data or information that would allow me to provide a more constructive answer or solution. They were looking for very specific answers for very vague questions.
    One of the interviewers (the longest tenured one) was dropping F-bombs during the interview. I felt like the interview was more of an opportunity for the tenured employees to pick people's brains with no intention of hiring so they can get relevant knowledge and perspective on a specific topic. The interview was an interesting experience if you want to practice your interviewing skill and test your self on how much you are skilled and knowledgeable.
    Recommendation for Riot hiring managers: Don’t be scared to hire someone who is experienced. It’s the best way for you to grow the business, as well as yourself. This place definitely seems complacent regarding the critical thinking of some people that interviewed me.

    Additional comments: Booking system is clunky and not functional (tech company should have this one figured out), agenda of the interviews were never followed, and job description is extremely vague.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Riot Games.

    Interview

    Every part of the Riot Games interview process feels like they interview hundreds of candidates to appear to be selective. It's pretty clear this process is putting a strain on their own employees and seems that it would be pretty indicative of systemic problems throughout the organization.

    Let's start with the job descriptions that are left intentionally vague, without even a basic inclination of work/project area. Let's follow that up with absolutely nothing for experience requirements to have a baseline of their expectations.

    Now we'll move on to scheduling: It's done by a bot (why!?!?) of my three interviews, they were rescheduled 8 times, 3 of which with <24hrs notice. Half of the interviews had the interviewers switched last minute due to availability. This leads me to believe that the bot simply looks for open calendar space and assigns the interview in round robin fashion, thus giving the interviewers minimal time if any, to review candidate backgrounds.

    The interviews: My interviews generally consisted of an agenda that was never followed. My interviewers all showed up fairly late due to "this interview being tacked onto their schedule last minute" and they were attempting to multitask during the interview. This became a little bit more frustrating when interviewers were actively texting on their phones on the video interview. Expect to be asked a ton of hypothetical questions while still having no understanding of what area of the company you'd potentially be working in or what you would be working on. You should also expect to be familiar with the 'Riot Manfiesto' even though in my particular case no HR people ever mentioned it's existence to me.

    After your investment of ten or so hours you can expect to receive a generic rejection via a 'no reply' email.

    When your employees actively boast that they interview 200 candidates to hire one, it seems a bit in poor taste to provide absolutely zero feedback. Beyond that, I've interviewed at many places and I'd have to say Riot's process is one of the worst, both for their own interviewers and for the interviewees as it seems to put an necessary strain on both. I'm solely providing feedback in hopes that they are able to inspect it a bit and look for some improvements.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Riot Games (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I had the very lucky opportunity to interview a Rioter about the culture of Riot games and how they stay true to their company's mission. I can not thank this Rioter enough for taking the time out of his busy schedule to grab coffee and chat. This interview has confirmed with me the desire to apply for this great company. I hope the Recruiting Operations Specialist I interviewed knows that he is an amazing person that captures the true identity of the company. I was truly moved by unique stories of Riot's Legendary requests and how the entire company tries to give someone a legendary experience. I will use the information provided to me to help me apply in the near future. Thank you for the experience!
