Senior Interactive Designer Interview

Senior Interactive Designer
Seattle, WA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at NCsoft.

Interview Details Their recruiter found me via LinkedIn and gave me a call. After speaking for a short period of time I stated I was interested and I believe we set up a time for an in-person team interview and I came in for about a 3hr long interview (i.e. typical portfolio review and hours of talking to the team) and afterwords I left. On my way out of the building I got a call with an offer and accepted. Pretty simple.

Negotiation Details – I told them what I wanted and they said, "okay".

Customer Support Interview

Customer Support
Brighton, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at NCsoft in May 2009.

Interview Details After a positive application response, the process consisted of a phone interview then lead to an on-site interview. Only one interview was conducted on-site and lasted for a couple of hours, with a couple of written tests.

Interview Question – None of the questions were particularly difficult, but a fair amount had subtle meanings to detect a personality profile.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation was required as the contract was pretty standard and the pay corresponded to the average salary for the position at the time.
