    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Applied on Ubisoft website. First had a phone interview with university relations manager. Three weeks later went into office for in person interview. Was interviewed by the entire public relations team in five groups of two for half an hour each so I was there for two and a half hours. All pretty much asked the same questions. Got back to me two weeks later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ubisoft in April 2014.

    Interview

    HR was friendly and professional
    The requirements sounded like a perfect match for my skillset, so I applied. They answered, but sent an art-test. Unfortunanenly, it required a skillset which was clearly not listed in the requirements. Thus, it was a bit difficult.

    Anyways, not complaining. probably just a small communication issue - can happen with thousands of applicants and openings.

    Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    There were about 3 to 4 rounds of interviews meeting with several people above and at the same level to your applied position.

    Initially you communicate with a recruiter through email to coordinate a telephone interview. The phone interview starts with an extensive overview on how Ubisoft is structured then proceeds to your typical Q&A. Please make note the overview is a long-winded speech.

    If invited back you meet with HR and everyone else . It's mostly conversational mixed with Q&A as opposed to situational or behavorial. The people seemed nice, easy to speak with, and has worked there for a very long time. Average 5+ years.

    The crowd isn't diverse at all and it's a tight knitted group. You guys can do the math on this as some might approve but others might not.

    It'll be interesting to see the stats on diversity: gender, ethnicity, openly LGBT, and also income disparity at this company. From my memory, there was only one person of color in the office.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ubisoft (San Francisco, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I was initially impressed with how quickly I was contacted after applying. I applied online and received an email from a recruiter less than two weeks later, scheduling a phone interview on the next business day. The interview was a pretty standard first round interview - Why are you interested in this company and this position, tell me about your experience, strengths and weaknesses, etc. I was told there were four other candidates being interviewed, and that I would know if I moved forward by the end of the week. I did (what I perceived to be) very well and was confident that I would advance. I followed up with the recruiter four times over the next three weeks, hearing little other than that the decision was still with the hiring manager. After three weeks, I followed up again and was told there were other candidates with interests that better matched the position. After keeping me on the hook that long, I would have appreciated some more specific feedback.
