    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Treyarch.

    Interview

    First step was a video questionnaire about your design methodology, who I was and what not. Step 2 was a moderately lengthy (finished was about 7 pages) design test involving many level/balance/systems design questions. I assume step 3 was a phone interview then on site interview.

    Interview Questions

    • One question was to draw a rectangular level layout with certain dimensions given.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Treyarch in April 2017.

    Interview

    All interviews I had were over Skype due to my non-local presence.

    Firstly there was an interview asking basic questions, mostly about linear algebra, C/C++ language features, small programming challenges (also in C++), and finally some more specialized questions about my interests specifically.

    Afterwards the second set of interviews involved a programming/general knowledge "written" exam, an actual programming test (writing actual code to be compiled based on specifications provided), and finally a series of additional in-depth interviews about programming, my specific interests, and general soft skills.

    Everything in the process went rather smoothly in my opinion other than it taking a good amount of time overall (which isn't necessarily a problem), and while local presence would likely have been better due to the moderate quality of the Skype call, the convenience of doing it remotely balances it out.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Treyarch (Santa Monica, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and around 2 weeks~ later I received an email. I spoke with the recruiter and she let me know about the position and the company. As I was fairly local they gave me the opportunity to come in and speak with the team.

    Most places have you interview over the phone or complete a test first. This was an awesome experience to meet with the team face to face. +1 for that.

    After the initial meet a test was given and then a follow up interview if all went well. E3 added a small delay to the whole process, but nothing major.

    Overall it was a positive experience, the recruiter and team were professional and anyone would be lucky to work with those awesome people!

    Interview Questions

    • Typical, what have you done in the past? What they do there.

      I met with the whole team I would be working with as well as upper management. They were all really relaxed and easy to talk to.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Treyarch (Santa Monica, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Start with I received a email from Senior Recruiter Jennifer. She is very efficient. Very quickly, I had a phone interview arrangement with Technical Art Director Murad and Technical Artist Stev. A week after the phone interview, I went to a onsite interview to meet Murad and the team in person. It was a very fun interview. People there are very talented, and they are very passionate about what they do, which is to make great games.
    Although, I did not receive a offer, recalling what I had experienced through the entire interview process, I have to say, it was a very positive and fruitful journey. And I am very thankful for it.

    I submitted an application through Glass Door, and received an e-mail within a few weeks asking if I was interested in interviewing. Before setting up an interview, I was required to film myself answering a few questions. I was encouraged to have fun with it and took the chance to be creative and show my personality. After this was submitted I was asked to participate in a formal interview with four animators. Over Skype I was able to speak with and answer questions from who would ultimately be my supervisors during the internship.
