    I worked at Square Enix UK (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was such a great environment to work in. Everyone was pretty amiable and understanding. The onus of responsibility is up to each individual person; this means that if you're late, you won't be getting money for the time you didn't show up but you won't be berated for it. Great bosses as well.

    Cons

    This is more of a downside of QA rather than Square Enix, but the downtime between builds is really lame. The worst thing here is being given nothing to do because they do not give you access to the internet unless you're of a senior position.

    Advice to Management

    Have clearer ways to advance in the company.

    QA Tester Interview

    Anonymous Employee in El Segundo, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Square Enix UK (El Segundo, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It was broken into 3 steps; Hiring Manager, Proficiency test, and then a final interview with the QA managers. The proficiency test was low pressure and the interview was actually very fun.

    Interview Questions

    • A series of grammatical and spelling tests were part of the test. The interview was mainly to see if you were a good fit for the job and the team.   Answer Question
