  1. Intermediate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Turkey
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Big Viking Games (Turkey)

    Interview

    I applied online for the fully remote position.
    The interviews consisted of 4 stages:
    - An email with a case study (Duration: 5 days, questions: fair)
    - Short screening with an HR person.
    - Technical screening on the case study.
    - Final round with VP Engineering.

    1 nice thing:
    Two people who attended the 1st technical interview were extremely nice.
    ------------
    4 unpleasant situations I've faced:
    1) I was able to learn the all interview process after few emails. I mean isn't it something fixed, why not putting it on the website?

    2) My current salary was asked. This led me to think that the position doesn't have a salary range, It will be defined during the process and my previous salary is a variable in the equation.

    3) If you have issues with accents, the final round might not go well.
    4) I did not receive any mail after the final round. If that is the common attitude, then that can damage the company's reputation. If someone has made it to the final round, at least send a template email, shouldn't be that hard.

    To be honest, I didn't learn anything during the process, but at least BVG can benefit from my feedback if they have any intentions of improving their process.
    Interview

    I don't think sharing the interview questions is ethical.
