    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.
