Zynga

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON

Negative Experience
Average Interview
Application

The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Zynga (Toronto, ON)

Interview

CoderPad exercise with hiring manager simple SQL questions followed by a 5-hour onsite meeting with data scientists, leads and managers. During the onsite was also asked to whiteboard a programming problem and did another SQL test using coderpad. The only negative thing about the process is not that I didn’t get the job but the fact that no one had reached out to me to tell me they decided to move forward with other candidates. I don’t mind this when it’s usually a phone screen or even first interview but when you take a day off work to interview for 5 hours, it’s disrespectful to the candidate to not even send them an email to let them know they didn’t get the job.

1 phone (zoom) screen and then 3 "on-site" (also zoom) rounds. Mostly leet code easy, one OO design question. Mostly tested my fundamentals and really spot checked me to make sure I didn't lie about any of the skills/experiences I listed on my resume. Behavioural was quite easy, mostly about your future goals.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zynga (London, England, England) in Mar 2021

Interview

Applied online for the role on NaturalMotion's website and 3 weeks later I received an email from HR to schedule an online interview with Tech Director. During the interview there were questions asked about past experience and related work/skills. After that I never got any reply from Zynga at all and no one followed up (it's been more than 6 weeks since then).

Interview

The recruiter reached out after applying for job in Linkedin. This was followed by a 45mins Zoom interview with the hiring manager. The interview had 2 parts: coding and basic ML questions. Both went very well but didn't got the call for next interview for unknown reasons. It's very unethical and sad to see this attitude.

Interview Questions
  • 1. Find if a string has balanced paranthesis 2. Basic ML questions (ML algos, evaluation etc)

Interview

I had two separate interviews scheduled and cancelled. The first one I got an email 10 minutes before the interview was due to start saying that they would have to cancel. They then rescheduled for the following day. I moved around some meetings in order to make it for the rescheduled interview. They never showed up for the second attempt at an interview. No emails or anything, they just didn't show up.... I don't know how they can be so disrespectful and have no regard for someone else's time. I had to rearrange my day and spent time preparing for an interview TWICE only to be stood up TWICE. Seriously, don't bother wasting your time applying for a job here.
