    I worked at Double Helix Games (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Make video games. People were great. The time I was there involved a lot of canceled projects and moving personnel.

    Cons

    A lot of canceled projects and moving personnel. Two companies were smushed together to crank out what amounted to expensive marketing games for movie licenses on every platform we possibly could.

    Advice to Management

    I liked everyone it was just a weird set of circumstances. Company is now bought by Amazon and life is much better I hear.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Double Helix Games (Irvine, CA (US)) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I have applied this company at online. then Someone in HR called me one week later. We made an appointment phone interview next day. Supervisor asked me about how to create normal map, HOw much know about this company., and so on... actually I didn't know this company, so interview was pretty normal, and result is bad. They told me you will get a test soon, but they never called me back again. That's it.
