    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Zynga in January 2017.

    Interview

    The process consisted of a case study as a screening followed by a phone interview with a PM and then onsite at Super day with other recruits. Case Study was no big deal but the phone interview was a struggle, the PM I spoke with was not very interested in guiding me along the PM questions.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Zynga.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Zynga about three months ago. I talked with a recruiter for a phone screen first, she is very friendly and easy to speak with. I mentioned my visa status during the phone screen (never do that), she said she need to check if they are able to hire me before we get too excited.

    I still got into another round of interview after a week, another phone interview. I talked with a designer in the team. They want somebody to fill the position as soon as possible. It was a hard interview, and the interviewer went really deep with some design questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zynga (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email request for a phone interview fairly quickly. The phone interview was about 30 minutes, in which the recruiter gave me a great description of what the job was like, and what the people are like in that department. This was followed up with a call with the hiring manager, in which she gave further details about the role, and she asked me a few general questions. About a week later, I was asked to come in for an interview. (the recruiter let me know that it would be that long, because the hiring manager was out) I went in and met with 6 different people at half an hour a meeting. The all were very friendly, and told me all about the department, and what their contribution was. They also gave me a little gift bag! The people there seemed like a family, and they really make the interview process a comfortable, even fun situation. Great job Zynga HR!! I have been interviewing at a lot of entertainment companies, and you were by far the best! They followed up with a really nice phone call, even though I didn't get an offer. Very professional.
