Konami Interview Process


I applied at Konami for the post of Programmer through a recruiter. I was then interviewed at Konami. The hiring process at Konami is one of the shortest I have ever been to. It includes just two rounds - one face to face interview and one HR interview.

Round 1 - Face to Face Interview
There were two programmers and a producer in the room as I took my seat. First of all, they introduces themselves to me which was highly professional way to begin with. After that, they asked me to introduce myself. While I introduced myself, they picked up my resume and started reading it. After I was done, they started asking questions based on my resume. They asked me about the games I had worked on in my previous job. For most of the interview, it was me explaining all the things to them about something that I had done already. They would join in between with questions regarding anything I had said at any point of time. They frequently asked how I implemented any 'x' for a feature. According to what I analyzed, I was speaking for about half an hour continuously before the interview was finally over. The interview was pretty tiring but since the people in front of me were extremely talented, it was worth every minute.
Q1. Given a game 'A' that would play out in a certain way how will you prepare the class structure for making this game run?

Round 2 - HR Interview
The HR interview was nothing like I had expected after the first interview. It was rather extremely easy going and just the general questions were asked. A few more questions were asked based on my previous projects. After that, it was just about myself and why I wanted to work with Konami, what Konami games I liked and why sort of questions. The overall interview was quite refreshing and easy. After that, the offer was made which I accepted just because I really wanted to work in the company.


How to crack (get into) Konami Interview


Interview at Konami is probably the shortest you might have ever faced. The entire process was completed in a day, rather I should say in a couple of hours. They call you for interview only if they see potential in you and after that. So if you have been called, you have achieved one-third of the task already. After that, it's what impression you lay on them that will decide your fate.

They will ask you questions on the work you have already done and so many cross questions will be made. So, you must be able to explain everything in the appropriate and understandable manner. If you are unable to do it, you might have to walk home empty handed. They will consider smart and confident people so work on that area as well.

Wishing all the candidates good luck. Prepare well and give your best shot. The company is really nice.


Thanks Anmol for sharing the details of your interview.

Difficult Brain Twister

A strange tradition is followed in an orthodox and undeveloped village. The chief of the village collects taxes from all the males of the village yearly. But it is the method of taking taxes that is interesting.

The taxes paid in the form of grains and every male should pay equal pounds corresponding to his age. In simpler terms, a man aged 10 years will have to pay 10 pounds of grains and a 20 years old will be paying 20 pounds of grain.

The chief stands on a riser containing 7 different weights next to a large 2 pan scale. As per the interesting custom, the chief can only weigh using three of the seven weights.

In such a scenario, can you calculate what must be the weights of the seven weights each and who is the oldest man the chief can measure using those weights?
