I worked at Capcom Vancouver full-time
Team is great, good atmosphere, leadership is solid, very proactive learning environment.
unhappy atmosphere in another team bring down the moral of the studio. excessive meetings..
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capcom Vancouver.
Applied online on their website and was contacted by a 3rd party recruiter who operated as the middleman with Capcom's HR/Recruitment team. (bit strange, but ok). Talked on the phone with 3rd party recruiter and filled out info form for them to submit to Capcom.
A couple of weeks later, an on-site half day interview was set-up. I did 4 different panel interviews over the course of the late morning and early afternoon. Lunch was provided.
I was surprised that the majority of interviewers came-off with a bit of an arrogant/unfriendly disposition during the interviews. An interview is 2 ways - do you want to hire and work with me and do I want to work with you for your company. The interviewers acted aloof and not very welcoming. I get it's a job interview, but I wouldn't want to work with or be in a meeting with you guys if this is how you guys operate. Are you unhappy or something or are you trained to come across as difficult people?
Get a call a week later saying that they would not be moving forward with my application as they had other candidates in the pipeline. No other feedback was provided on my interview when I asked for it. For about 6 months after that, I saw Sr.Producer position posting still up. Assumption is that these guys have a real hard time finding the right people and from reading the company reviews, they seem to have a serious culture issue at this studio.
Honestly glad that I didn't move any further with this application process.
On August 12, 2015, the CGSV Social Committee organized a pot luck to celebrate Capcom Vancouver’s multicultural workplace by inviting staff to bring home cooked food from either their mother land or food that they loved. Here are the names of the tasty dishes that were served up!
