    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Storm8 (Redwood City, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Joke of an interview. The recruiter dodged an important question and the her questions made no sense. I was also accused of making an error with the scheduling of the phone interview which was incorrect and unprofessional.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Storm8 (Redwood City, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a so-called "silicon veteran" who used to work in a larger company before. He was generally nice but uncomfortably stringent about my answers to his questions. When I provided with a correct (or close enough to "correct") answer to his business question, he did not intend to show any signs of encouragement. Quite the opposite, he seemed to disagree with me whereas my answer had EXACTLY the same meaning to his words. He ended the interview halfway with a giggly laugh and a sudden hang up, suggesting that my reply to one of his questions was a joke or somewhat entertaining to him. Would you please have some respect Okay? Storm8 is not one of the top tier gaming companies in Bay Area I'm pretty sure, so I don't believe having a condescending personality is the best self-identification as an interviewer from this company.

    Video Producer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Storm8 in March 2016.

    Interview

    Started off with the typical phone interview screening with a recruiter to assess skills, personality, goals, etc. Because this position fell under the User Acquisition (pseudo-marketing) team, there was a project assigned to evaluate candidacy.

    I had 3 days to create a storyboard sequence that tested for commercialization, acquiring more players, demographics, and [social]media. After reviewing the project, the department manager agreed to have a phone interview with me. From the start, it did not feel like we really 'clicked' during our conversation and certainly fell like the decision & my fate were determined before the interview really got started.

    After that phone-call, I did not receive any response, feedback, or notification regarding the position or candidacy from Storm8, which I feel is a bit unprofessional especially for such a highly rated company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Storm8 in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a response within a few days. I spoke at length with the in-house recruiter. She was very professional and knowledgeable. Talked to the in-house recruiter. A few days later I had a 1-hour conversation with the CEO.

    Interview Questions

    • This was more of a brain-drain than an interview. The CEO seemed to be fishing for a strategy. to save his company. The same position has been posted for over a year. I have a feeling I was just one of many the CEO spoke to hoping to figure out what to do. The last few months have been filled with rumors of people leaving. Last week they had a 50% RIF. It all makes sense now. Too bad... there are talented people at Storm8.   Answer Question

    2D Artist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Storm8.

    Interview

    The first stages of interview were fine. I enjoyed speaking with the artists and solving art problems, but then it got weird. Very long 4 to 5 hour interview.

    One team in particular asked me what my tolerance level was and told me they would curse and be politically incorrect and I better be ok with it. Horribly unprofessional in an interview. They didn't ask any real questions about skills and instead pried into my personal life.

    The final bit of interview with management was going well until I expressed interest with working with them and management offered me a salary more than 50% below the area going rate for my position. This reeks of predatory behavior. I actually was going to walk when they doubled the base pay.

    If you don't negotiate like a shark they'll happily destroy you. I felt they gave me the low offer because I'm a woman.

    I took the job, but the red flags were good warnings I should have heeded.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Ask for a higher starting salary as they want to low ball you. You make the offer and you hold the confidence. They notice any falter and they'll eat you up.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions centered around employee relations and performance appraisal process. They also asked how to be on track for compliance. The questions did't have much depth to it. Both the interviewers were nice but didn't seem to have much experience which is understandable as its is startup.   Answer Question
