Industry Jobs: Rockstar Games wants you


A banner flying proudly on the Edge Online main page displays what could be a dream come true for gaming fans. Rockstar Games, developer of such hits as Grand Theft Auto IV and Midnight Club: Los Angeles is looking for fresh blood. Of course you'll need more than just a desire to land a gig there, experience is paramount as the developer is looking for everything from programmers to designers. Kicking the dirt because you don't have the required schoolin'? Well, don't fret because game testers are required at some of the studios including Rockstar Toronto, makers of The Warriors.

It's a shame that Rockstar isn't looking for a new lawyer because we know of one guy who is in the market for a ticket out of Florida and a decent paying job. Got the skill? Apply today! Don't? Then don't make yo' self look a foo!

According to a post from the infamous industry insider Surfer Girl, BioWare has been called out as one of the worst employers in the gaming world. Gamewatch.org poster Milez5858 warned forum readers of the horrors of working for the Canadian company, "EA gets a lot of the grief for their employment history. For anyone considering work at Bioware, beware of them as well." Milez5858 later added, "They love out of country workers because they don't understand the Canadaian [sic] labour laws. They continually fire people with out warning. This is illegal in Canada."

So is Milez5858 a jaded employee of the recently acquired Canadian developer? No. In fact he/she claims to be a friend of former employees angered for being dismissed for refusing to work more than 40 hours a week. Soon after lighting the fire from under BioWare on January 25, Milez5858 removed his comments on Gamewatch.org's message boards regarding the company and its practices on February 13 leaving only the disconcerting words, "big scarey [sic] company vs. li'l ol' me." Who knows the truth in this situation, but let's look at the facts.
