- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Multimedia Games.Interview Details
Applied online, after some time had past I got a call from a recruiter saying they were interesting in offering me an interview and asked if a few different times would work for me. They were all weekday/during work hours but I was able to set an hour aside due to my employer at the time already being fully aware I was looking for another job 100% due to location and a move. Phone interview had many questions about experience and resume, they had taken the time to read my previous work experience over which I respect. Questions were normal for what you would expect a hybrid IT/Customer Service job to include. A lot of the "questions" in the interview were actually direct questions from them about past experience, what you would do in sticky situations, what you've learned from various aspects of your life. I was then given a chance to ask questions about the company for ten minutes or so to make sure, after they knew I would fit in, that the company would fit me and what I was looking for. They also asked about what my long term plans and goals were, which is refreshing to see a tech company looking for career minded people.
I was told at the end of my interview that they also had a few applicants they would be interviewing with direct experience in the casino gaming field, and while my interview went well (also another thing that's nice to hear) they were emphasizing that experience in this search and would notify me within a week if they were going to go another route. Within a few days I was told they would like to meet with me for a 1:1 in person. That interview in my case turned out to be more an introduction and a we will be extending you an offer than a secondary interview, but I was able to talk over a lot of the training and transitional questions at that time which was awesome going in to a job blind that you applied for online.
Direct questions were asked about technical aspects I had on my resume as skillsets, just to make sure I wasn't making them up. I was honest in those aspects I was rustier on than others, which played well.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsNo real negotiation, I was offered on the higher side of what my interviewer said my potential scale to begin could be due to past experience and qualifications. Medical/dental/vision was included from the start as well as PTO accumulation and 401kAccepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
- Asked for an explanation on managing CISCO configurations through a Serial connection which I didn't expect based on the job description. All background check questions were normal considering how regulated the industry is. View Answer
