: There's really no way you could live in San Diego and work in Santa Monica. I'm living in Orange County and even that commute is a beast. The minimum is 1.5 hours each way for me, and I usually arrive late and stay late to miss the worst of the traffic. And keep in mind that rush hour will double or triple any commute time, and that it lasts from 5:30am to 9:30am and again from 4:30pm to 8:00pm. You'll be driving a minimum of 6 hours a day... It will be exhausting. Trust me. Not worth.
Is there a suggestion box at Riot? "Add office in San Diego" *coughcough*

: Riot Games Summer Intern Q&A
I've been eyeing some of the "Talent" positions like Recruitment Coordinator, I know the interns in this Q&A aren't in that field but I was wonder if anyone could shed any light on your experiences with anyone in that department?
: 3 hours is quite far and I would not recommend it, especially with traffic. This summer I commute about 20 minutes in the morning and that's about my personal maximum, but there are Rioters who drive further. I haven't heard of anyone commuting from San Diego, though. We tend to work long (and fulfilling) hours here, so driving 3 hours each way is just not feasible. That would mean you'd have to leave around 7am in the morning and not get home until about 11pm each day if you're lucky with traffic. Don't let that discourage you from applying to Riot, though, as I'm sure there are housing solutions that could be worked out.
My husband is getting stationed at the Naval base in San Diego so I won't be able to move closer until he's out of the Navy, but I tell him all the time I'm going to apply to Riot and find a second home there and just see him on weekends. #dedication

How far does everyone commute? I'm moving to San Diego next year and would love to work at Riot but I want to know if 3 hour commutes are a thing
