    User Researcher Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ubisoft (Halifax, NS (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Both interviews were over Skype. The first one is with HR and second is with a tech guy. The experience was pleasant, no hard questions. I found the the tech guy had a complete different perspective and understanding of user testing from what i envisioned, so the communication did not go well. I also did not anticipate the questions that I encounter as I do not have that kind of an direct experience. I think there's certainly element of luck involved in terms of whether the person interviewing you had a good rapport with you and had a similar mindset.

    Generalist Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ubisoft (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for a generalist programmer position, I got a call with a recruiter who then sent me a Node.js test (really specific questions). Really weird. Then I had a group call with 4 people, with varied technical questions. No code. Then they made me an offer, with a short reflection delay (5 days). I finally nicely told them I would not accept the offer at that salary, and would also need few more days to think about other aspects if my salary requirements were met. I have been told in a very cold way, that the offer was final and was not meant to be a comparison for other offers. I genuinely would have considered that offer if they made an effort on the salary, I don't understand this reaction. Very rude and clumsy.

    Interview

    At that time, I had just got out of school and this was my first interview ever for an animator position. I had the recruiter and 3 other people in front of me.

I didn't feel This whole interview made me very uncomfortable, even though I felt confident at first and was prepared.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ubisoft (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    A screening with the recruiter took place first. He explained the role and gave a lot of information about the studio. This was followed by a call with art leads who asked a series of questions and allowed me to ask some questions that I had. It lasted about one hour and was pretty laid-back. The interviewers were friendly and easy to have a conversation with.
