    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlottesville, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Video Gaming Technologies (Charlottesville, VA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Lengthy interview with two people at a time for 5 sets of people. Overall not a bad experience but made a long day. Lunch was decent enough although the interview continued on the way, during, and on the way back from lunch. I did manage to eat something though. Most people were decent however I felt one was a little persistent regarding the use of some tools. Once the interview was done, the turn around to an offer was fairly quick.

    Interview Questions

    • The main one wasn't a real question but more of a disagreement where one person thought a certain toolset was GCC based and I disagreed. They tried to get me to say it was one way or the other however I didn't honestly know as it was a tool I used and not one I maintained.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was out of work at the time and had been for a month. Money = good, no job = bad.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Video Gaming Technologies in April 2016.

    Interview

    Two phones interviews, one on site. Interview on site was very relaxed setting with basic questions about education, experience, and personality. Both types of interviews were casual in nature and I felt very prepared for both with minor preparations.

    Interview Questions

    Counsel Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Video Gaming Technologies.

    Interview

    If I recall correctly, I had a phone interview and then a panel with two attorneys. The (phone) panel interview went very well. it was a pleasure speaking with the attorneys. However, in the rejection, it came to my attention that I did not have the M&A experience they were looking for. M&A experience is not on my resume and I never indicated I had such. What is more, at the time that I applied, it was not indicated that this was an absolute requisite. It was presented as a more corporate generalist role. In the year since I interviewed, the position has been listed about 2 additional times. What is most unfortunate is that VGT, along with many others, are not looking to grow a candidate. They seem to be looking for a very specific type of candidate.

    Skills can be taught and subject matter can be learned, focus on the candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • No incredibly difficult questions other than asking me about M&A experience that I clearly did not have.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Video Gaming Technologies (Tulsa, OK) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Phone screening 3 times, followed by in person interview at local office with video conference of upper management from TN. It was a group interview though and I'm not sure if it was intentional or not but they positioned me next to the video screens which means you're constantly looking left and right and start to feel like you're on a firing range.

    Interview Questions

    • Fairly standard history questions, asking for examples and situations in my field, a few light scenario questions, etc.   Answer Question

    Scrum Master Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Video Gaming Technologies in November 2017.

    Interview

    Both HR and the department manager ghosted me. Met some of the team at a conference and was given the manager posted his email address to submit a resume directly. He forwarded it to HR. HR reached out asking for my salary range on a Thursday via email. I was not contacted on Friday. The next Monday I was left a voicemail stating it was a final attempt to reach me after several tries. I tried calling back immediately but the phones were not working on their end. I sent an email right away stating I had not received any communication since Thursday but that I was indeed interested in interviewing. HR sent me an email apologizing and scheduled a 30 minute phone interview with no description or expectations for the call besides who it would be with. The call was with the scrum manager and agile coach. To my surprise it was a technical interview not a typical first interview to discuss the actual role. I was scheduled for a second interview which was onsite but it took two weeks due to the manager and agile coach being out of town. Onsite interview was about two hours long. First panel was with a scrum master, dev manager, Product Owner, and agile coach. The second panel immediately following was with the scrum manager and another scrum master. I was told I would hear from HR within a few days and the decision would be made within a week. I followed up with proper etiquette after the interview. I never heard anything back even after reaching out to both HR and the manager.
