    Animator Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (London, England) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I sent an e-mail to HR (address obtained from a friend who was already working there) and was sent an art test, which took about one day to do. I sent it back, and was offered and interview promptly. Interview itself was relaxed; probably mind was already made up on the art skills side, and the interview was used as a measure of cultural fit. Interview lasted maybe 30-45 minutes. About an hour after the interview I was given a call by HR and asked for my salary expectation. Then either that same day or a day later, I was e-mailed an offer with my salary request. Extremely efficient process, though I know that was highly dependent on the Art Director at the time (he apparently had a lengthy/inefficient process when hired).
