THIS IS A LONG POST BUT I'VE STILL MADE IT AS CONSENSED AS I POSSIBLY COULD.
So the interview for the admin job at Ubisoft Montreal was yesterday at 5:00 p.m. Good thing I checked with the recruiter late last week because I really thought it was supposed to be on Monday.
Where do I begin?... When I entered the building, I found myself in this rather large entry hall and I couldn't even see where the reception was at first, obviously because I was a little too nervous and in awe of simply being there. There was a bunch of girls who were sitting at a table on the right to promote something and one of them took pity on me and kindly asked me if she could help me. I told her who I was looking for and she pointed me towards the reception doors which were practically next to me.
I don't know how I managed not to squee and smile like the fangirl that I am when I saw the large banner for AC Brotherhood plastered right above the glass doors... My stomach churned, but in a really good way. :)
Anyway, while I was waiting for the recruiter to come, the receptionist actually asked me to fill out a Confidentiality Agreement. That's right. Seems like every time you go there for the first time to meet someone, they actually make you sign that document. I didn't even have time to go through it before the recruiter arrived and off we went to a small conference room and the interview began.
I won't go into details but the interview was actually pleasant and I was very grateful that the guy didn't ask any of the nasty trick questions that the majority of employers usually love to nail you with. He asked me why I wanted to work for Ubisoft and I told him that I had a lot of respect for this studio and what they had accomplished, and I also mentioned that I liked gaming in my spare time. So he asked what game I was playing these days (even if "it's not one of ours", he added... LOL!) and I told him I was very much into Mass Effect 2 nowadays.
And I guess the whole thing went pretty well overall because once everything was over, he told me he would get back to me soon for a second interview, this time with the President's executive assistant (the person I'd be closely working with).
I'll keep you guys posted as things progress. :)
