A few days later, I started adding a ton of Ubisoft Montreal office employees and one of the kindly forwarded my CV to HR. and Yes I happily got an assignment to solve in one week. I solved in the best way and I put it in my GitHub account, and then I send the link to the HR. No answer. Pure Silence until yesterday, that I sent an email that I have offer from YP I got a response back that
    Apologies for not getting back to you sooner.
    Unfortunately, we will not be moving forward with your candidacy as we have recently filled the position.

    Generalist Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ubisoft (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Just an hour after applying for this position I already heard back from the recruiter via an email, asking me if I had some time for a quick phone conversation. After confirming my availability, he called me immediately. The conversation went very well, professional, very friendly, and light-hearted. It did not feel like an interrogation, a process he goes through 30 times a day, but a very personal experience. We set the date of the interview at the Montreal office, which was about a week after our conversation. His words were: “This gives you plenty of time to prepare”. Five stars to the recruiter!

    At my actual interview, I met with two ladies, the lead of the department and an analyst. We talked at great length, even going over the scheduled time to cover everything. They wanted me to walk through the process of some of my previous work, which I had prepared in a portfolio on my iPad. The questions very professional, and they also revealed the goal of the position. It was a very pleasant experience from beginning to end. Unfortunately, the position was canceled at Ubisoft.

    Senior Systems Administrator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ubisoft (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Took a long time: initial phone interview to filter out bogus candidates. Then a technical interview, then interview with immediate superior + HR drone. Process took about 4 weeks. It did not help that it was during summer, I understand that.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe all processes involved during initial boot of a server   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negociated my holydays more than my pay itself. I did get what I wanted but it took some talking; they were initialy not inclined to give me what I wanted until I walked out of the negociation; they then came back with an agreement on what I've asked.

    Tools Audio Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ubisoft (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    initial short call from HR to know expected salary, why interested, etc. Then 2 programming tests, one on audio programming and one on general c++ programming. I think I took too long on the general test, I took like 3hrs when it was limited to 2hrs... in any case my performance on that test wasn't good enough to get an interview

    Interview Questions

    • audio programming was quite basic, e.g., what is an audio sequencer, what is pro tools. Not really any programming questions in that one. For the general tests, assembly questions (which I ignored), some c#, and some general math/3d questions, like how many vertices are required to be rendered when a game is streaming with a given refresh rate and the player is moving at a speed of X m/s yadayada (pretty sure I bombed that one lol).   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ubisoft (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    One general over the phone interview and then another face to face interview. Wasn't called after. However they were very polite. Many places don't even call you if they don't want to meet you for a second interview, they called and said it was a pleasure to meet you, however we won't be moving forward with you (something in those lines)

    Generalist Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Ubisoft (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Phone interview of about 20 minutes with recruiter to know the reason why I applied, my expected salary range and when I would be available. I answered I'd give three weeks notice to my current employer.

    Interview on site with recruiter, team lead and director. Technical and non-technical questions. Their intention was to know my personnality, my strengths and weaknesses, how I would fit in the team. They kindly answered my questions, really honest answers. Interview lasted about one hour. They said I'd get an technical interview online that I'd be able to answer from home, needed to plan for 100 minutes.

    Got the technical questions, took about 120 minutes to complete at my own pace. Very broad range of subjects as it was intended for a generalist programmer.

    A phone about one week after the technical questions to plan for a small phone interview. This interview was with recruiter, two team leads and the director and they wanted to know more about my long term goals, had questions about my personal career path up to that point.

    Got a phone call 3-4 days after the last phone interview, saying they wanted to give me an offer but needed to verify some professional references before, which I gave them the next day.

    The verification of references took about one week and I got an offer.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, the offer was fine for me.
