    Positive Outlook

    I worked at CCP Games full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Company and great people.

    Cons

    Ok compensation for a students' summer job. In a big American city...? Not so much...

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees. Really. Sit down and REALLY talk to them, exchange ideas for improvement, issues...

    Game Master Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stone Mountain, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CCP Games (Stone Mountain, GA).

    Interview

    The interview process generally involved an at-home, timed, written test evaluating basic literacy and critical thinking skills. Following that, at least one live, on-site interview took place featuring standard Q&A. That interview potentially featured a trans-Atlantic video conference.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your experience within our game? What areas of the game did you tend to focus on? The interview focused quite extensively on ensuring that the candidate had made the company's product a regular part of his or her daily life.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was offered. An offer of employment was made, and the terms were dictated beforehand.
