    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Ubisoft.

    Interview

    Applied through a recruitment company. Took two weeks to get an interview call from the recruitment company. Technical interview was scheduled with the lead developer in Abu Dhabi. But on the interview day, it was again with HR person in Abu Dhabi. Again technical interview was scheduled after two days. First time, I observed a 1 person interviewer in a big company. Usually it is a panel. And the interview lasted for 10 minutes, only 3 questions. Looks like the interviewer did not want to process the interview. And its been two weeks and no update yet.

    I applied online – interviewed at Ubisoft.

    Interview

    Hiring process is rather fast for a big company. A few hours after sending my cover letter and resume, I was invited to a phone interview. After that, I was scheduled for a 24-hour questionnaire, which involved critically assessing a game I have played before. Less than a week after that I was contacted for an interview with lead designers at the studio.

    At the point of writing this I am scheduled for a second interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself.
      After this question the interview kind of turned into an enjoyable conversation regarding game history, game components, life as a game designer and life at Ubisoft.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ubisoft (Sakai, Osaka (Japan)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Was contacted by email which then progressed into a Skype interview/talk. From there they set me and art test which was based on two 8 hour sessions. After the art test I was then invited to the studio which they nicely offered to pay for travel. At the studio I was expecting to have a tour but instead it was an actual interview, they put right into a meeting room and then asked me a series of questions about my experience, my future and what games I play. All together I was interviewed by a total of 9 people in three different sessions, one after the other. I asked my prepared questions and then was shown out without seeing the studio at all. A week later I was offered the position. All very smooth and they were very welcoming. I was just very unsure about the environment before I actually started.

The technical questions are mostly to test your ability as a programmer as well as your experiences in game programming.

    Interview

    Very standard job interview procedure. You get interviewed by three to five people to see if you are a good fit. If you’re assuming that a tight job market means that an employer doesn’t have to exert much effort to fill its open positions, think again.

    Knowing how to “hire smart” is a must for any employer, no matter what the economy looks like. A company that does not think strategically about recruiting could miss out on the best candidates, fail to hire a diverse workforce or worse - expose itself to liability for discriminatory hiring practices.

    Now is the time to take a critical look at your hiring process to make sure it is efficient and effective. Remember: A little bit of common sense goes a long way toward hiring the best employees.

    What Do You Need in a New Employee?

    The first step in your recruiting process should be to prepare a well thought-out job description that can be used for both hiring and employment purposes. When creating a job description, keep the following in mind:
