    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hothead Games (Vancouver, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Interviewers seemed nice but they were pretty disorganized. They didn’t seem to want to be at the interview. The interview felt rushed and I didn’t get to ask the questions I wanted to ask about the company. They asked me some fairly simple questions. Some of the questions were focused on whether I played and enjoyed video games.

    Because the interview process was such a mess, I decided not to work here. It was really that bad.
