I worked at Aeria Games full-time
Team was fun and engaging, good work life balance, fun parties, really smart group of people, the vending machines, the community couch
not always a transparent culture and management not connecting with all their employees, the decor of the santa clara office was hideous for a while
Advice to Management
well you already sold this part of the business off so not much advice to give if there is no management anymore
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aeria Games.
After applying online, I was contacted by a HR manager in order to schedule a Skype interview with the direct manager I would depend on if offered the position.
The interview was really pleasant. First of all, my interviewer told me all about the company, which was really useful since Aeria Games Europe has gone over quite a huge change of direction in the past year. After that, he went over the job description and he asked me some of the typical questions (what do you currently do, etc)
Afterwards, we moved into the real point. His questions were focused on trying to catch me with my guard off, and to test my capacities to be in a management position, ie: "Imagine you are offered the job and you must get access to the project, and you don't have the password, what would you do?" or "You start working on this and you find out thousands of tasks to be done, how would you priorize them?"
Some of those questions were though, since my interviewer wasn't just satisfied with the first answer. He demanded different approaches and complicated the situation progressively. I really enjoyed those questions, even though I get stucked in some of them. I had to be creative, and I assume my answers revealed my character very much.
After those questions, he asked me if I had any doubt or question for him. I did have some, and he was willing to answer me sincerely, which I highly appreciated. After that, the interview finished. It took about 45-50 mins.
A couple of days later the HR manager got in touch with me again in order to let me know the result. The whole process took about 3 weeks.
