    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Redwood City, CA (US)) in September 2020.

    Interview

    Interviewed with recruiter, then team member peer, then department Director, then Head of Department, then VP of business unit. All of the interviews were 1 hour, except with the VP for 30 minutes. Each interviewer started with their own background and experience at the company, then asked for an overview of my background, then specific questions about my expertise. They allowed about 10-15 minutes for my questions at the end.

    Transformations Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Electronic Arts.

    Interview

    Multiple reschedules. The first question was kind of a trick question. The interviewer didn't like my answer so gave me 24 hrs to come back with a better answer, I came back with two alternate answers only to be told my original answer from previous day was correct. Frustrating, but it was a worthy test.

    Was called back a few days later for peer interview. Peer interview was mostly standard questions.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Electronic Arts.

    Interview

    Overall a smooth process as HR was quick and responsive. I applied online and the entire process took roughly 2-3 weeks. The interviews themselves place an emphasis on problem solving and culture fit, as one of the rounds asked to walk through a data science project from beginning to end

    Global Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Electronic Arts.

    Interview

    Very disorganized interview process. Applied in November 2019 for Global Audit internship, did not hear any response until late March 2020. No confirmation, no follow up. Almost 5 months of total silence from EA's part.

     I was given a phone screen the following day where the recruiter was very excited about how they have made the internship remote as a result of COVID-19 concerns. She assured me that the future of the internship was safe and the remote internship had already been approved and they were planning on spending the coming months ensuring that it would be a success.

    Not even 20 minutes after I completed the phone screen, I received another email from the same recruiter informing me that the internship was not approved and it was simply not practical for it to have been remote in the first place.

    EA wasted my time and no doubt wasted other candidates' time. These are details that seem fairly simple to iron out before you contact candidates, especially since they had 5 months to figure it out. Poor planning reflects poor management and poor tone at the top down.

    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts.

    Interview

    Had 3 rounds of interview, 1 pre-screening 15 min round, 2 Technical rounds.
    My interview experience was very bad, in both the technical rounds they just asked me some questions from my resume, nothing technical at all and above that in one of the interviews they didnt even knew what I was there for, they assumed me to be there for a full time role and asked me some questions about security which were not relevant to this position, soon the interviewers admitted they were out of questions and they had not prepared as they did not know I was interviewing for intern role. Horrible experience.
