    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BitTorrent in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Worst place ever.

    Worst interview questions i've ever had, had nothing to do with the job itself.
    Still have not reimbursed me for travel expenses and it has been over a month, they keep telling me the accountant was on vacation... for a month I guess.

    One of the PM's (Working on their new CHAT APP) that interviewed me was completely rude and asked me things that had nothing to do with the job. Was cursing during the interview very disrespectful and very rude.

    After telling me they would be in contact the next day or the following day, they never got back to me and I had to try to reach them multiple times for an actual answer!
