    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Emeryville, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Wargaming (Emeryville, CA).

    Interview

    Very unprofessional. Not only did HR fail to deliver meetings at the set times but was all over the place with planning. Office was nice but the employee presentation was awful. Scantly clad pj's seemed to be the norm. Interview room was booked and when we finally went in after 30 minute wait where I sat alone...the place was left with trash and rank body odor. If that was not a deal killer the openness of team trash talking is a kicker. Not worth the drama.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty straight forward questions. Nothing too over the top. But it is strange when they ask your age and down you if you did not play NES games.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wargaming in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with one of the lead developers. The interview lasted 30 minutes and covered data structures and knowledge about general programming concepts. I had completely forgot about heaps (the data structure, not the memory space), but I talked through the process of creating a performant data structure for sorting number.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Wargaming (Emeryville, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Met with several members of the team and got a strong sense of what opportunities existed in the company as a whole. The interview process was either one on one or done as a group. It was very casual where members of the group I would be joining asked questions about my qualifications as well as some "blue sky" sessions on what I would like to do, change, or implement in their games.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wargaming.

    Interview

    First phase is a phone interview. Just to make sure you aren't unstable.

    Second phase is an in-person interview. Initially I thought I had to be interviewed by six different people, but by the time I showed up only two people interviewed me. Not a big deal, but that confusion could have been avoided.

    During the interview they didn't ask obnoxious questions. Nice and straight forward people. I was asked to "reply" (not actually responding as this was done on paper) to real examples of emails that CSR's get. I was also asked to rate my knowledge on various computer tech ranging from the easy (BSOD) and stuff that was beyond normal knowledge. However, they stressed that the tech. knowledge didn't disqualify me, and they just wanted to know how much I knew.

    Interview Questions

    • Computer technical issues/problems that are beyond a normal layman's knowledge.   Answer Question
