    I have been working at Gaming Laboratories International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and work life balance. If you are interested in pursuing a career in the slot gaming industry, this would be a good place to start.

    Cons

    Starting compensation is very low. Makes you wonder why you even went for Engineering in college but overall the company treats it's employees well.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should should connect with employees on a regular basis and let them know how the company is doing. This means don't just say it is doing good/bad but back it up with statistics.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gaming Laboratories International (Wheat Ridge, CO) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a phone call the next day to come in for an interview. There is a personality questionnaire (DISC profile) that needs to be filled and sent to the recruiter prior to the interview along with a transcript. I got to my interview which was divided into 3 parts:
    1. Interview with the recruiter/hr.
    2. An hour test with various probability, C++ and SQL questions.
    3. Interview with an Engineer and a manager.

    Overall very easy questions and I'm sure I aced the test. I also know I passed the HR interview which means that I probably failed the later interview. I graduated with a 3.6 GPA (electrical engineering) from a good University and have relevant experience and agreed to take the measly 45k salary that they were offering what leads me to believe that they were rejecting me due to being from a different country (racism) or just bringing in someone they know personally because they're friends. I'm not trying to be cocky or anything but there is no way they found someone more qualified than me at this salary point (and they had more than one opening). Obviously I can't prove it but that's the only thing that makes sense.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. You roll two dice. What is the probability of getting a sum of 6 (and then a few more variations of the same question).
      2. There are 3 hats with 3 balls each (blue, red, white) what is the probability of drawing one ball from each hat and getting at least 2 blue balls? (no pun intended).
      3. You have a standard deck of cards. You draw two cards, what is the probability of drawing a pair of Aces?
      4. Some really easy C++ output questions (know what passing by reference means).
      5. Another question about object oriented design so study that before the test.
      6. What does SQL stand for?

      Those are the ones I can remember
