    Interview

    J'étais un débutant et après cela j'ai été embauché en tant que webmestre. Deux ans plus tard, j'ai été promu producteur web. C'est un travail génial, très précis (les profiles sont rares) mais difficile à dégoter.

    Software Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I went through a phone screening, then a single behavioral interview, followed by a single technical interview. Overall, the process kept me pretty well informed and I had a good idea of my standing and what to expect.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical behavioral stuff, and there were 2 technical questions. The first one was a simple classic, the FzzBuzz problem. Second one was to make a function that would take in a list of strings and one long string, then tell you if you could make the long string from the list of strings (like a ransom note from a magazine).   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Electronic Arts.

    Interview

    When I applied for this position on October, it was located in Los Angeles, not in Texas as they said in their rejection email, which was sent December.

    But most importantly, how come my application arrived BEFORE they hired someone? If they hired someone, why did not remove the posting? So unprofessional.

    "Thank you for applying to the 161571 - Talent Acquisition Operations Program Manager position in Offsite - Texas. We appreciate your interest in the role, however, this position had a candidate identified for hire prior to your application arriving."

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Emailed by recruiter, scheduled an interview the following week. Met with interviewer for an hour. 15 minutes of getting to know, rest of the time on coding challenge. A bit impersonal, but decent experience overall. Good company impression and environment based on the interview. To schedule, they also sent me an invitation to their online portal with all of my interview's information/preparation.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Electronic Arts.

    Interview

    TLDR: Make sure to keep your options open even if you make it to the final stage of interviews. They could always fill the spot with an internal person.

    I got to the point where I did a full day of interviews with an executive, several people from different teams, and lunch with the hiring manager. Everyone was very nice and professional and even after speaking with the executive, they offered to answer any of my questions post-interview, which sounded promising. Ultimately they went with an internal person. Just keep your feet on the ground while interviewing even if they make it seem like you're a shoe-in. It was an insightful process but keep in mind they always have someone in the wings. This is great news if you're already in there but not so great when you're trying to get in. Keep in mind the whole process (including constant back and forth/rescheduling with the recruiter) was about 10-12 weeks. Do not hold your breath but enjoy the process if the opportunity presents itself.
