    3D Artist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winter Springs, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Keen Software House (Winter Springs, FL) in December 2019.

    Interview

    3d artist candidates beware!!! Okay, so I didn’t get a call or interview of any kind. Instead they just sent me a test. They sent me a low poly object with some really rough concept art with the following instructions: do not deviate from the model. Textures should show edge wear. Create 1 LOD. Submit the .fbx with 2048x2048 textures in metalness. Include render and in game screen shot and clay render. Pretty simple right? So I do as They ask and here is their feedback:

    - geo is too simple
    - no design documentation
    - no reference material provided
    - parts don’t make sense as to how they attach to each other. don’t “synergize”

    I was confused by this feedback as it contradicted the test that was given. I asked for clarification, and basically I was suppose to know that they actually DID want me to deviate from the model and was to use the model provided as scale reference. The reviewer clearly had no idea what the guidelines were, and expectations for the deliverable were made hidden. I would urge anyone applying here to be careful, this was a waste of time. Highly disrespectful.
