    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bucharest (Romania)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bucharest (Romania)
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Ubisoft in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by phone, by the HR department after having applied online. An interview regarding HR and technical questions was setup. The questions was easy and common in any interview for this position. The next steps included 3 more interviews: one with the HR department, and 2 technical interviews.
    I did not like the fact that the initial technical interview was with a person from the HR department, not with a technical person. I find that disrespectful for any candidate applying for a technical position.

    Production Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Ubisoft in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received an email around three months later that they wanted to set up a phone interview. This was on a Friday morning. The interaction was fast and an interview was scheduled for the following Monday afternoon. I received another email about fifteen minutes before the scheduled interview time telling me that another member of the hiring team had put out an offer to someone else without consulting the rest of the team and it was accepted over the weekend, so my interview was cancelled. Incredibly unprofessional.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Montreuil, Ile-de-France (France)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreuil, Ile-de-France (France)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ubisoft in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Smooth, quick process.
    2 rounds of interviews (one with HR, one with the team lead).
    The HR interview was short (20-30 minutes) with the usual background and experience questions
    The lead interview was mostly about past experience, with a quick technical test (2 pages of open source code to read, analyse and comment).

    A lot of emphasis is put during the interview process on the fact that the temporary contract will likely be turned in a permanent one, eventually. After checking it's actually a rare occurrence, so get in only if a 18 months employment contract is acceptable to you.

    Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bucharest (Romania)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bucharest (Romania)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Ubisoft.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed a long time ago - things surely changed in the meantime.
    There are now tests involved and what they are after is a very trained, logical, structured person.
    Make sure you built some mods, built some levels and understand the basics of game design - rules, sign&feedback, etc.
    Search the internet for the Ubisoft Design Academy courses. I remember a Gamasutra article - that might help.

    Interview Questions
    • You will be asked to design something - so make sure your design patterns are clear and progressive.
      If I might seem like i talk nonsense - welcome to the design world :)
