    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Redwood City, CA (US)) in January-2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy (one panel and two phone screens) but the job was vastly misrepresented in all hiring steps and it was not a very cohesive team. What was once a very good Community/Social team within the Web Dev department is now homed within PR and is very corporate-glossy and not a pleasant team to interact within.

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not like the team and they did not represent the job accurately

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Electronic Arts in September-2010.

    Interview

    Interview went great. it took them a long time to respond to me sadly. Dropped off my portfolio at gencon in July or so. Didnt hear back from them until late September. Once i did hear from them the interview process went smoothly. obviously there was some nervousness on my part, but in the end i got the job. I was happy to get it, their offered salary, while low, i didnt know it was low, and was about 4 times more than i was making at the time. HOLY CRAP. I immediately bought a concertina. never learned to play it, but i often scared my roommates/cats with it. It worked well in that role. I still have the concertina, but i often think i should sell it.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Orlando, FL (US)) in July-2011.

    Interview

    I got a phone call in July after applying in May for a position that I didn't even apply to but worked well with my skill set. The recruiter tells me that someone will contact me the next day to set up an interview time. I do get a call to come in the next week and a confirmation email the next day.

    So I visited for an onsite interview and meet the team, which were a really great set of people. A team of 5 I think with the development manager. Each of them asked me questions and it looks as if they had a set agenda of what they planned to accomplish in the interview.

    First I was asked about my education and employment experience, then technical questions (C#, SQL, Concurrency, OO Principles etc.), then questions about teamwork, constant changes in requirements, and time management. Next they asked if I had any specific questions. And that was the whole interview and it only took an hour, which is was the whole time allotted.

    Finally I needed to take the skills test (which apparently takes 3 hours) but apparently IT was having computer issues so HR said they would email it to me. I sent everyone thank you notes the next day and asked the talent coordinator when I would expect to get an email for the test. I asked once a week for a month and then two weeks later I asked if I was still being considered for the position because I haven't received anything yet and the position is still posted... No reply so I called, and was told someone should be getting in touch with me the next day and she gave me a number just in case...no call so I called and left a message. I sent her an email, no reply. I called again (a week after my message and email) and it now goes straight to voicemail. How crummy! After some research I now know that EA is pretty notorious for leaving people in the dark, it's like they never applied for a job before!

    The position is stil posted, so maybe they just haven't updated the site yet.
