    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Video Gaming Technologies (Reno, NV) in July 2017.

    Interview

    They sent me some problems to work on, calculate probabilities, and write a bit of code to verify the probabilities. I did this, then they asked me to rewrite the code in another language. I did that. Then I heard nothing at all for a month and a half. Finally I received an email just saying they'd gone with another candidate, that was it, no other feedback or anything. This was, in my opinion, a bit rude after the amount of time and effort I put into the process.

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Video Gaming Technologies (Franklin, TN).

    Interview

    Phone screen by hiring managers.
    Absolutely terrible 30 minutes. It was a quiz about agile scrum mostly.
    Never learned a thing about the position.
    They even misquoted me during the interview. 30min mark precisely they said thanks and someone would be in touch with next steps. Instead, I recieved an email next day informing me that I am not going forward.
    Worst phone screen Ive ever experienced. Try it for yourself if you dont believe me.
