    Mobile Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Tencent (Palo Alto, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The office in Palo Alto is only 6-7 employees large so the process is rather quick. 1 HR screener and 1 Phone Interview and 1 On-site with the BD Director. The office boasts a start-up culture but they have limited backing of the primary company in China. The outfit seems to be experimental and the expansion strategy to North America is very unclear. The interview was very direct with the domain expertise-level questions and a validation of how big your rolodex is to help assist with cold calling issues. Unfortunately the BD team is not strong enough to influence the Product Strategy due to a lack of technical fluency and thus the impact is rather limited in scope that has no hooks for business partners. No behavioral fit questions. Feedback was promptly given 1 week later.

    Interview Questions

    • What are the key verticals that Tencent should address? What are the benefits for the consumers and the businesses? How would you approach this partner? What are other monetization models that WeChat could evolve?   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tencent (Palo Alto, CA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I have 2 on site interviews. The first one last the entire afternoon from 2 pm to 6 pm. I have interviewed with 9 people. I later find out, 3 of them are from my project team, the other 6 are department heads and team leaders from other departments. The interview process is very friendly, non-intimidating. They never asked any "tricky questions" or brain twisters.

    The second interview I met with the General manager of the company. It's a very fast and easy meeting, and I had a very good impression with the company.

    About 2 days (I think) later, I got the call and was hired.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It's pretty straight forward. They give me an offer which was a lot better than my job at the time, so I accepted without much negotiation.

    Interview

    30 mins group discussion, asked about the business model and sustainability about a game, 5 mins HR and supervisor Q&A, and then they announced the decision on sight. The HR WAS RUDE AND DID NOT LISTEN TO OUR SUGGESTIONS AT ALL. At last they picked a girl that was the time keeper role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Tencent (Shenzhen, Guangdong (China)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    the interview is pretty much behavioral. the interviewers asked a lot about my college life and what kind of organizations did i attended. and the technical questions are all about EXCEL and WORD.
    they also asked about why I applied for this job and how do i know about Tencent. these are all straight forward questions. So nothing surprising. And as i said, the turnover is pretty high. so they dont expect a perfect candidate to apply
