- Anonymous Employee in Helsinki, Southern FinlandNo OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult InterviewApplication
I applied online. I interviewed at Supercell (Helsinki, Southern Finland) in Apr 2023
InterviewLike many from the outside, I used to perceive Supercell as the ideal, 'Ivory Tower' sort of employer. A company at the top of its game, only hiring the very best. I applied several times without response and I attributed it to my lack of experience. On my Nth application, I did get a screener call with their outsourced hiring partner. The questions were quite standard and the interview itself was a typical screener that any serious professional breezes through with eyes closed to move on to at least the first interview round. The day following the screener, I received a two line email, mentioning that 'they are looking for candidates with more studio experience'. Out of genuine curiosity I asked them 'So you mean my seven years split between Major Studio A and Major Studio B?'. I received no further response. I took some time to research the company's hiring process through the experiences of colleagues. A pattern began to emerge. Hiring practices may be heavily biased with actual qualifications having very little to do with whether you succeed or not. My advice to interview candidates : Supercell is not the company you may believe it is. Keep an eye on the CV of the person who was hired in your place. If not at least comparable to yours, you may begin to understand. Advice to the company : Unless you take some time to review your hiring criteria, top talent will go elsewhere and the quality output of your work will suffer.Interview
Typical screener questions : -Verification of work history, main areas of focus, reasons for wanting to join Supercell, expected salary.1 Answers
