Interview Details They ask the kinda of questions that we see in any best-seller interview books.

Interview Details The hiring and interview process went smoothly and professionally. It involved two interviews with both interviews involving a current Leads/Managers in QC as well as a Producer. Questions were typical for the role. General feel was reassuring and fun. Had good conversations.

Interview Question – None of them were difficult or unexpected for the role. If you have successful previous experience then there should be no issue with questions.   Answer Question

Level Designer Interview

Level Designer
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Ubisoft in September 2013.

Interview Details Their Talent Acquisition staff reached out to me via email and invited me for an interview. First round of interview involved mainly behavioural questions as well as design/problem questions. Presented with a level design test at the end of the interview for a platformer game in the vein of their more popular franchises with a week to work on it.
Invited in for a second round of interviews by more senior staff with more challenging questions related to specific design and production challenges.
HR personnel got back to me within 2 weeks of the last interview with an offer. Total process took slightly more than a month. The people involved were all very nice and friendly and made the effort to make you feel relaxed and treat you like a candidate they would seriously consider.

Interview Question – Given two important features/tasks with a looming deadline that only you can handle, how would you decide which would be more important?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotiation as they mentioned that the conditions set were pretty standardised for the company.

Manager Interview

Manager
San Francisco, CA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Ubisoft.

Interview Details There were about 3 to 4 rounds of interviews meeting with several people above and at the same level to your applied position.

Initially you communicate with a recruiter through email to coordinate a telephone interview. The phone interview starts with an extensive overview on how Ubisoft is structured then proceeds to your typical Q&A. Please make note the overview is a long-winded speech.

If invited back you meet with HR and everyone else . It's mostly conversational mixed with Q&A as opposed to situational or behavorial. The people seemed nice, easy to speak with, and has worked there for a very long time. Average 5+ years.

The crowd isn't diverse at all and it's a tight knitted group. You guys can do the math on this as some might approve but others might not.

It'll be interesting to see the stats on diversity: gender, ethnicity, openly LGBT, and also income disparity at this company. From my memory, there was only one person of color in the office.

Interview Question – There wasn't any.   Answer Question
