- Work/Life Balance
I worked at Electronic Arts full-time
Handled onboarding remotely very well.
Love the team I was on, and had a great experience.
Discussed events that happened over this summer in relation to diversity.
Didn't get any office specific swag.
I applied online. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Austin, TX (US)) in September 2019.
Phone call from internal recruiter. Reviews resume and attempts to reconcile with openings. Resume gets submitted to hiring manager, which, in my case expressed interest. Then I was notified of an EA assessment via codeingame.com for a 2-3 hr online test. The test covered both C++ and some rather non-trivial SQL. Not entirely sure who picks questions or if it was randomized. Some of questions were very esoteric and of little interview value. Each question individually timed, with some having excess time to complete, while others, not nearly enough. As I heard nothing else, it appeared that scoring well on this assessment was a requirement for further consideration.
