    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Storm8 (United States)

    Interview

    1st interview was supposed to be 15 min (more like less than 10) and very poor and unprofessional. Complained to HR, and they set me up for an hour interview which was ridiculous and a waste of time. After telling me the range of pay for the position and asking me what I would prefer, I answered. The interviewer then had the audacity to ask me if I could accept a lower pay after she explained some of the perks they offer? What did you ask me and give me a range for then ?

    Overall the whole experience was a joke. Probably dodged a bullet.
    Just know they have a 2.7 Star rating on google for a reason.
    Interview

    On the second (hour long) interview you'll be asked 2 questions that are exactly the same. The only difference is that they changed the title of the game.
