  1. Quality Assurance Tester Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Naughty Dog (United States) in Oct 2022

    Interview

    The first two interviews consisted of generic interview questions about video games and work history. The 3rd interview had applicants play a video game while the interview team watched. I was initially contacted one month after applying, and each interview happened roughly 3 weeks apart, so it was a long process. The staff who conducted the interview were really nice! I did not receive an offer though, and I was fairly overqualified for the position. It seemed like there were a ton of applicants, so it's probably pretty competitive.
