Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at WMS Gaming in November 2013.

Interview Details I met this group through a job fair and discussed the position and my qualifications at length.
The phone interview was with 2 people who worked on the team and involved standard interview questions and a few questions about creativity.
The second step was a skill test that involved creativity questions about various games and a probability question that involved some basic programming.

Interview Question – They said I got the Probability question wrong so double check your work.   View Answer

Engineering Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Chicago, IL (US)

I interviewed at WMS Gaming in May 2013.

Interview Details The interview consisted of a number of behavioral type questions including greatest strengths and weaknesses. They were mainly concerned with creativity level and approach to analytical problems. Clearly they were looking for previous work experience in the gaming industry, or an industrial type setting. A high GPA (>3.0) was key for getting the initial interview.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had to use your leadership skills to overcome a problem in a team setting? What was the problem, what actions did you take, and what was the result.   Answer Question

Associate Software Engineer Interview

Associate Software Engineer
Chicago, IL (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at WMS Gaming in March 2013.

Interview Details Got the hiring manager's contact from school project. First interview is with HR on site while visiting the company. Later on received a phone inter view with a panel of two. Questions are engineering questions, and the project I did before. Since it's a internship offer, I feel like it really depends on the hiring manager's preference so it could vary.

Interview Question – I had a little bit hard time when questioned about technical details about computer graphics, so definitely warm up yourselves before taking the phone.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation because it's an internship.
