I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Activision Blizzard (Surry Hills) in September 2009.
Interviewed with Marketing Director. Was asked about experience briefing agencies and design. Asked about my background and how it might apply to the position.
Very quick, talked monetary expectation and remained in line with theirs.
“Activision Blizzard had another strong quarter, growing year-over-year, setting top and bottom line records, and over-performing guidance. Our continued ability to set new records speaks to the quality of our teams and the breadth and enduring nature of our portfolio of franchises against the backdrop of a large and growing interactive market,” said Bobby Kotick, Chief Executive Officer of Activision Blizzard. “As we look ahead, our innovative core gaming pipeline, as well as initiatives like mobile, esports, and advertising, will continue to drive growth for our business.”
Paul Yan began working at the Toys For Bob studio as a character animator and technical director right at the end of Madagascar’s production. Before he joined Toys For Bob, Yan had worked in the web development industry and quickly learned the demands of making a video game, especially one that had to adjust quickly to a changing script and character list while the film was in development.
“I quickly found out that video games are harder than web development,” Yan said with a laugh. “It’s a different type of software, but still very fun. It takes an army."
