    Interview Details

    They ask the kinda of questions that we see in any best-seller interview books. They also use the kinda of techniques described in these books such as you said one thing and they noted it and waited half an hour to ask another question related to this detail just try to mix you and totally disturb the interview logical progression.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Francisco, CA (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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.
