    Community Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Epic Games (Cary, NC (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by email letting me know they were interested in speaking with me. A recruiter screen took place, followed by a hiring manager call. At the conclusion of the call, the hiring manager expressed interest in bringing me in for an on-site. They made arrangements and were extremely accommodating to travel plans. The travel coordiators were always in contact making sure everything was still on track. They were considerate of my obligations and justs made it flow.

    Epic went out of their way to make me feel welcomed the moment I stepped off the plane.

    The entire day was just classy, it was well put together. I did not feel rushed through each interview. It was a very human experience. At the end of the day I was talked about next steps, and questions about relocation came up. Conversations about salary requirements were not awkward or uncomfortable. Everyone was just classy the entire day. One of the big things that stood out to me was asking how my family felt about the possibility. I know moving to a new city with a family is always a big consideration, but it was genuine interest.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Epic Games in July 2018.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me through LinkedIn, and we arranged a time for a quick call to discuss my background and next steps. Afterwards, I was told I did not meet the experience qualifications for the position.

    While I appreciate not wasting my time and ending the process early, it seemed rather disorganized to take the time to reach out to me if I do not have the needed experience. It's not like there was anything I said in the call that wasn't also available on my LinkedIn page.

    IT Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cary, NC (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Games (Cary, NC (US)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process is lengthy and thorough. I was referred through a recruiter. Unfortunately, I did not get the position. Total process from first phone interview to final decision was about 3 weeks (This was during the Christmas season)

    The first contact you'll have is with Emily (Phone). She's extremely pleasant and reasonably technical. She will go over your resume with you and ask non-technical questions about your job history. She will also ask if you're familiar with Epic games, what kinds of activities you do outside of work, and ask about why you want to work at Epic. Emily is very professional, and she's very clear about the position's requirements.

    After Emily, you'll speak with the manager of your Department (Phone). In my case, that was Eli, the IT Director. Eli is more technical, and will dive deeper into your previous experience and qualifications. This phase did not include any specific technical questions, only requests for further elaboration on the technologies you have experience with. He will also probe you about familiarity with other technologies that are likely used at Epic.

    Finally, you'll speak with a number of members that will be your co-workers (Google Video Call). I spoke with an IT Systems Engineer and an IT Security Engineer. These engineers will ask for more detail about specific aspects of your resume, and ask questions designed to test your knowledge. These questions can vary based on your responses, but generally they'll try to ask difficult questions for areas that you claim to be strong in, and lighter questions on areas that you claim to be weaker on. These guys are smart, and this final phase of the interview is the most stressful. I felt like they were measuring technical knowledge as well as cultural fit.

    Overall the process is fairly long, and very in depth. Epic prides itself on finding the perfect person for each position, and they're willing to be patient to do that. While I was ultimately very disappointing that I did not get an offer, I have a great appreciation for the amount of effort and care that goes into the process. I was given constructive feedback after their decision was made, and I hope to be considered again in the future for a similar position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Epic Games.

    Interview

    Applied online and quickly received an email that I would be contacted within two weeks or probably not at all. Two months later I was contacted by a recruiter. After having a very pleasant phone call was asked to do a programming test and return it within a week. However the test was for a build engineering position and had nothing to do with the qualifications listed in the job posting. I did the test anyway and never heard anything back from the recruiter. After a month or so of waiting, I withdrew my application.
