    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GREE International Entertainment.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted within the next day or two to set up a phone interview. The phone interview took place maybe 4-5 days after I had initially applied.

    The interviewer jumped right into coding questions immediately. It started with two very simple questions but make sure you use very efficient methods (I didn't which I think hurt me). These questions can be solved in about 5 or less lines of code. The third question was harder but I was not required to write out the code for it. I was only required to discuss a method and its runtime. I'd say for the third question be prepared for questions you'd expect from companies like twitter except you won't have to actually code it.

    After the initial phone screen I didn't hear back for a while (5-7 days) so I emailed the recruiter to see if there had been any updates to my application. It's been weeks now and I still haven't heard anything. Even though I didn't feel good about GREE after reading the reviews here on glassdoor, it would be nice to at least have been told that I wasn't a good fit instead of leaving me in suspense for so long. Many companies that I only applied to an did not get an interview even had the curtsey to let me know I was not a good fit.
