    Informational Interview- Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience

    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!

    The interview process was very well organized and effective. Recruiter is really nice and works on scheduling very well. One thing is for sure, get to know the company before going into the interview. Received valuable feedback that helped me on future interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Had three interviews with riot. The last was with a girl who was rude, unprofessional, and seemed to be angry. At the end of the interview when she asked if I had questions for her I tried to be friendly and asked why she liked working at riot. She said, "that's a leading question, you shouldn't assume that I do like working here." Well based on her attitude during the whole call, I wouldn't want to be working near someone like her or someone who would act so unprofessional to a potential hire. And based on her words, not sure if I would want to work at a company with unhappy employees.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Riot Games in September 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me on linkedin and after a long chat told me he will forward my profile to the teams.

    Then 1 week later he reached out and I got in contact with the team interested in me.

    1st interview - Behavorial - 2 people just asked questions judging personality, giving scenarios and what challenges in face. After the interview I got a go ahead for the tech interview

    2nd interview - Tech - I got an interview with a software developer and a senior member. The 1st 45 mins were just questions anything which comes to the mind, about hashmap, how data centres work, what i think happens when we put a URL in the browser, about HTTP requests.
    2nd 45 mins was a technical question, I solved it and covered the edge cases and the developer was satisfied.
    A day later, the manager told me I am not selected because I missed something in the tech interview.

    It is a lot of excitement for software engineers because if you are passionate about games you will be excited but the process is a true time waste. You can invest your time and energy at any other and much better place IMO. Interview at a place where people hiring you know what they are doing.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Riot Games in September 2017.

    Interview

    Was initially reached out for my application in Software Engineer. After a few weeks of communicating back and forth, I was sent to another recruiter for a more suitable role. I later found out that I was to be interviewing for a QA role. Ultimately I would have rather they given me notice through email instead of calling me with the expectation of interviewing for a SDE role.

    They said that in order to be part of the software engineer roles there, a minimum of 5 years of experience was needed or having experience at the top 4 tech companies or other gaming companies. It was a let down cause it brought my hopes up but also because I rescheduled other interviews for this "opportunity".

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Riot Games.

    Interview

    Interviewed for an international role. 6 months, 9 skype interviews, a full day interview panel in person, flew me out for a 8 1-hour back to back interviews with no breaks- not even lunch or the bathroom. They did a background check, contacted 4 references... and after being told yes at every single turn in the process, and assured this was the final step and good news coming- a process change. Now a committee in HQ would be making all final hiring decisions. So, after 17 Riot employees, in 4 regions, including the hiring manager and VP, gave me the green light- a faceless committee who had never spoken to me decided unilaterally that I wasn't qualified. This speaks volumes to a top-down corporate culture that undermines its own people, has zero consideration for candidates. I invested countless hours preparing, playing the game and in transit, worrying and waiting, only to be told that the hiring manager wants to hire you, but he's not allowed to.
