  1. Human Resources Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Naughty Dog (United States)

    Interview

    Naughty Dog interviewed me, told me they definitely wanted to move me on in the process, then ghosted me. I followed up and told them I had another offer so I preferred to move quickly and they basically told me they *might* want to move forward, but they can’t tell me for sure yet so maybe I should just take the other job - are you kidding? I told them I was interested enough that I would try to hold on my other offer as long as I could. They booked me another interview and then they cancelled one hour before! They knew I had another offer and they told me I’d have to wait another 3 weeks to interview. Terrible candidate experience and disrespectful. I was really interested in this position and the experience with TA alone was so off-putting that I think I should just pass.
    Interview

    Nothing. They basically just conversed with me.
